Once upon a time there was a story. A love story. Those are the opening lines of Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba’s Ursula, the story of two kids–Miro and Ursula–who spend their childhood together. But when they start to grow up, they’re separated–Ursula is sent off to school. When it becomes time for him to get married, Miro finds Ursula again, but he soon learns that she’s a fairy, and when fairies fall in love, they explode. Is there a way for them to be together? Ursula is drawn with a simple, flowing line. It’s a charming story about two kids in love who grow up to be two adults in love: a fairy tale with a number of South American influences (from the creators, who are both South American).
