After centuries spent trudging from door to door granting wishes, one of the fairyfolk looked at the modern world of smartphones and gig economies and realised - there should be an app for this.
Log onto FairyFare now, and have your problems solved, tasks completed and crises averted, all in one snap of a magic finger. (Terms and conditions apply - no sex, power, love or money.) Not only will FairyFare solve your problems, their cut of the fee goes to charitable research!
Or why not join the team as a pixie, attending call-outs and improving lives one job at a time, with the help of a menagerie of magical creatures? London-based sisters Philippa and Natasha Spaight both signed up, and... Phil seems really happy with it!
Admittedly, Tash quit and is now out looking for a new job, as she couldn't stop wondering - is cash-for-miracles really the way to a better world? And why do these fairies want human money anyway?
FairyFare is a new urban-fantasy comic mini-series about magic and money, by Nick Bryan & Rosie Alexander, the team behind 2018's The Little Deaths of Watson Tower one-shot, plus separate Kickstarter successes with Nick's 2020 comic And It Snowed and Rosie's 2021 artbook Eros + Venus.
After tackling a black and white city full of grim reapers in their previous collaboration, this time they're away with the fairies and in living, glowing colour.
THE LITTLE DEATHS OF WATSON TOWER
Kelly Arnold and her friends are hanging around a tower block, dressed like tiny grim reapers when everything gets too real. Like it or not, they must face the scampering nuisance of death itself.
The Little Deaths of Watson Tower is a twenty-page black and white one-off comic written by Nick Bryan (Comedy & Errors, Hobson & Choi novels) and illustrated by Rosie Alexander.
It's the first full-length comic story by both creators, and tackles questions of mortality, coming to terms with hard times and exactly what it's like to suddenly become a living skeleton.
A quirky, funny, unique story, the book features twenty pages of black and white artwork, full-colour front and back covers, and an escalating sense of baffled dread.

"From the moment you see its striking pink and blue portrait cover, this new book definitely stands out from the crowd... very carefully and deliberately put together with each page feeling perfectly balanced... a superb debut offering from both Bryan and Alexander."
"Twenty pages that were just a joy to read. I just absolutely breezed through it. Nick’s writing’s really sharp and quite quirky, it’s got a nice character to it... Rosie Alexander, definitely one to watch out for... absolutely loved this from front to back."
- Vince Hunt, Awesome Comics Podcast
"The Little Deaths of Watson Tower is sweet and dark and beautiful and powerful, all at once. It remembers what being a teenager is like, how the heavy parts of life effect us at that age, and how important good friends are to getting through it."
SAFFRON: SPACETIME ACADEMY ADVENTURES
Whilst on holiday, Saffron Sizemore falls through a wormhole and suddenly appears at the Spacetime Academy For Fundamental Representatives Of NEXUS or completely coincidentally, SAFFRON for short.
Once at SAFFRON, the academy, Saffron the girl manages to enlist herself into the academy; and as well as training to become a spacetime officer, she tries to find her way back home but no one knows where, or even when Earth is.
Written by Samuel George London (Milford Green, Project Hoax) and illustrated by Rosie Alexander.
SAFFRON was published through Fair Spark Books; partnering with the UK based charity Little Heroes Comics, which create and distribute comic making kits to children in hospitals and other organisations across the UK, every comic bought during the launch Kickstarter was matched and donated.
