Filmic Light - Snow White Archive: Hank Porter Comic StripWritten by award-winning author Cecil Castellucci Shade, The Changing Girl and featuring art by Gabriele Bagnoli, this three-issue series aims to introduce readers to a new side of the iconic heroine. Snow is more than a damsel in distress; she possesses a heart and soul that yearns for knowledge, love, and acceptance. Made to work in her own castle by her wicked stepmother, the Queen, Snow's world changes the day she meets her prince charming and her jealous stepmother tries to have her killed. Snow flees to the forest to hide and finds sanctuary with a family she never could have expected in the boisterous seven dwarfs. Can her heart still flourish with the shadow of the queen's hate looming over her, and only the lingering hope of seeing her prince again? Newsweek has the exclusive reveal of the cover for Disney Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 1, which you can see below. Last January, Dark Horse Comics announced the start of its collaboration with Disney to bring Frozen to the comic page.
Disney Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
In order to generate publicity for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs , the film and its characters were the subject of an extensive marketing campaign second only to that of Mickey Mouse. Merchandise of the film continues to be produced and sold today. The comic included ideas that were ultimately not used in the film, including the Witch's capture of the Prince. A comic strip adaptation of Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was released to coinside with the release of the film. The comic strip was written by Merril de Marris and drawn by Hank Porter. Used in the strip are a number of story ideas that were ultimately abandoned in the film, including a more elaborate and comical meeting between the Prince and Snow White in which Snow White creates a 'dummy' of her dream prince, which the real Prince sneaks into , and an entire storyline in which the Witch kidnaps the Prince to prevent him from saving Snow White . Both of these abandoned concepts were notably recycled for use in Sleeping Beauty .

Disney Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs #1
So great that this has been preserved. Thom has a nice blog for those interested in classic illustration, but never saw this on there. Thanks for posting. It nice to be able to see old strips and comics preserved digitally. I no longer have to hide under the covers with a flashlight. Yes, I think it's fantastic how the web can actually be used in a positive way to digitally preserve and share such wonderful "artifacts" as this.
