''{{Garulfo}}'' is a [[FrenchBelgianComicBooks french comic series]] written by Alain Ayroles (also Author of DeCapeEtDeCrocs) and illustrated by Bruno Maïorana , taking an humoristic take on FairyTales like DeCapeEtDeCrocs did for the swashbuckling genre.

Garulfo is a frog who cannot stand being at the bottom of the food chain, and worships mankind as the epitome of God's Creation. Inspired by the tale of "Literature/TheFrogPrince" and with the help of a witch, he succeeds in being turned into a prince by the kiss of a handmaid he mistakenly believes to be a princess, and manages to make his entrance at he king's court. Unfortunately, he soon discovers [[HumansAreBastards man's true nature]], and his ignorance of human society puts him in bigger trouble.

The second StoryArc is based on the unwilling cooperation between the innocent Garulfo and Romuald, the irascible and vain prince turned into a frog to learn humility, so that Romuald kisses a princess and both beings find back their respective forms.
