The Way It Crumbles

Title: The Way It Crumbles
Publisher: Boston Comics Roundtable
Writer: Dan Mazur
Art: Dan Mazur

Half-sized minicomic that tells the sad tale of a down-and-out elf who once lived in a hollow tree and made cookies. Once the satirical elements are revealed it's easy to see where the story is going, but writer/artist Dan Mazur still manages to tug on the heart strings getting you there. The art is beautiful, especially in the final scene. This is a good bit of urban fantasy and a nice play on the traditional faerie tale structure.

Rating: 8/10
