Start two different series based on the beloved fairy tale but never as it has been told before.
Beauty of the Beast series:
1. Alba #0 Beauty of the Beast
A very short teaser for the Beauty of the Beast series. This prequel focuses on Alba who later becomes known as Pluck as she starts her journey at age six.
2. Beauty of the Beast #1 The Mystic Rose- Part A: The Flower, The Sword, And The Kiss
The story of Beauty and the Beast with a twist. What if the woman was the one turned into the creature?
On the planet Terra when recorded history began, Man coexisted with the Necroms. Necroms were intelligent catlike humanoids. The dawn of this period was known as the First Age of Magic. In the Second Age of Magic, a war broke out between Man and the Necroms and by the middle of the Second Age, Man was nearly wiped from creation. Those who survived fled Wellspring and journeyed across the sea into the unknown, finding new homes and creating fortified domains. In the Third and final Age of Magic, Man established five island kingdoms: Commery, Fletching, Morgog, Swelldom, and Hort.
In the First Age of Metal, Man turned from the lost art of magic to the might of weapons as they discovered iron then steel. Large armies were created, and Man fought amongst themselves, forgetting the Necroms into myth. For generations the wars continued until an arranged marriage between the two strongest kingdoms of Commery and Morgog ceased the bloodshed, and so Man established the first Emperor and Empress and the tradition of Amalgamation. When both the Emperor and Empress of the Five Kingdoms died, the two strongest kingdoms' heirs married and crowned a new dynasty, and so began the Age of Amalgamation.
During this age, a witch placed a curse on a girl named Pluck. The curse had been meant for a boy, Prince Edward of Fletching, for stealing the Mystic Rose. Pluck transformed into a Necrom with the Kiss, Edward's first kiss as her only redemption. The Kiss wouldn't be an easy task since showing her face meant her death.
AaBack A Dark Fantasy Fairy Tale series:
3. AaBack's Grimm #1 Tale Of Two Worlds: The Wizard, The Battle Mage, And The Werewolf

What Jane doesn't understand is that his curse is nothing like the ones in the fairy tales.
