I'm about halfway through the archive of Megan Kearney's Beauty and the Beast, and it is a really, really quality read!
Megan is a Toronto based animator who has a deep love and knowledge of Old European stories and culture, and a definite gift for character development and dialogue. You can find the strip at Comic Fury: http://www.batb.thecomicseries.com/
Beauty and the Beast less of a romance than it is the meeting of two developing personalities that are forced to adapt to each other, and Kearney really knows how to ripen a story in a slow but gripping fashion. Check it out!
