Cecil Castellucci and Gabriele Bagnoli whistle while they work on “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” miniseries from Dark Horse
One of the advantages of comics is that familiar stories can be told in new ways. That’s the angle Cecil Castellucci and Gabriele Bagnoli are taking with Dark Horse’s Disney Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, a retelling of the classic animated film. Told entirely from Snow White’s perspective, the three issue miniseries will focus on the title character’s kind nature and selfless heart, even as evil forces surround her.
I’m all for more quality comics content made for kids, and what better way to kick this off than with an adaptation of one of the most beloved animated films of all time?
Check out the details below.

Dark Horse Comics to release “Disney Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” Comic Series in June 2019
MILWAUKIE, Ore. (March 21, 2019)—Dark Horse Comics and Disney are reawakening a classic Disney tale in Disney Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Written by award-winning author Cecil Castellucci with art by Gabriele Bagnoli, Disney Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, this comic retelling revisits the timeless classic of Snow White.
Relive the classic Disney fairy tale through the first-person perspective of Snow White in Disney Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. 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?
Disney Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on June 16.
