"This thesis will analyze and discuss how award-winning contemporary comic artist, Emily Carroll, reinvents and subverts fairytales in a modern context. Through understanding how Carroll’s fairytales fit in fairytale history, this thesis will discuss how Carroll’s focus on female experiences along with her use of medium revives the genre’s relevance for a modern audience."
Includes the children's comic "The Titan," a modern fairy tale that follows the adventure of a young girl who sets out with her father on an ocean voyage to leave their tiny island for a strange and unwelcoming new world
