The story of Snow White has been done countless time since the story’s inception. Most recently, it was the focus of ABC’s hit show, Once Upon a Time. There were two films based on the character within the last couple of months as well. Mirror Mirror being the first and now Snow White and the Huntsman. It’s fair to say that most people know the basic story well enough. SWATH (because it’s easier to type) steps a little outside the normal Snow White realm and turns it into more of a medieval-action-fantasy-adventure yarn. It’s risky to spin a classic in a bit of a different direction, but sometimes it’s necessary.
