#5 Father Bernard

| November 5, 2011 | 0 Comments

I’m intending to adapt the local Somerset legend of the Witch of Wookey into a short comic for a fairy tale zine. It tells the tale of a monk named Father Bernard who, in order to protect the young couples of the town of Wookey, set off in search of a bitter, jilted witch who lived in a cave and despised young love and happiness. He ended up freezing her in stone with Holy Water but never made it out of the twisty, turny caves himself.

If you end up in Somerset, be sure to visit Wookey Hole Caves in order to see the rock which looks like the witch, and so created the legend.
