Comic Correction: Corpse Bride
As a few of you might know, I posted the following cartoon on the website a little over a month ago:
While I think most of you got the joke, a few people were quick to complain/correct me. These, shall we say...vocal few, wanted to make sure that I knew that "The Corpse Bride" was a classic Russian folktale and that Tim Burton didn't come up with it at all. So I got a few angry emails making sure that I knew that I'd made a mistake and that Mr. Burton shouldn't be given credit falsely. As such, for the sake of diplomacy, I would like to resubmit my former cartoon as I have redrawn it to be 100% more accurate and to please the people who were concerned about Russians not getting acknowledged. Enjoy:
Don't blame me. All I did was make it more accurate, according to the literature major who has a deep love and respect for Russian folklore, and wanted to make sure it got the credit it deserved. I hope they're happy.
