Sakimichan has done lots of interpretations of Disney and fairy tale characters, but we especially love this breathtaking Jack and Sally genderswap. While flipping gender scripts has become a standard strategy in art, this interpretation really spoke to us. Plus, if everyone else is going to talk about pumpkin spice everything already, we can start breaking out The Nightmare Before Christmas images, dammit.
Morning Roundup brings you Metal Gear Bowie, updates on American Gods and Miracleman, and fantasy writing that breaks all the rules!
