An Original Re-imagining of the Classic Fairy Tale with Super Heroes!
Written & Directed by John E. Lee
Dedicated with Love & Respect to Dave Stevens
March, 2014

Poor little orphan Allan is a budding comic book creator constantly abused by his wicked step-mother
and step-sisters. With Charming–Con coming to town, they trick him into building spectacular cosplay
costumes for the big costume contest then leave him home alone with his obedient Dachshund. But
Allan has a rich fantasy life and one of his favorite Super Heroes pays him a visit to help him find
his inner strength. Allan arrives at the Con and the Super Fantasy becomes Super Reality
as he confronts his villainous step-family in a classic comic book showdown!
