Here Comes a Candle is an anthropomorphic graphic novel by Mary Hanson-Roberts, originally appearing as a serial in Furrlough, later collected/reprinted as a single-volume 215-page trade paperback by Shanda Fantasy Arts in July 2000.

Done in a faux 18th-Century sketch/woodcut style, the graphic novel retells the story of the French Revolution with an anthropomorphic cast (mostly descendants of talking-animal characters from French fairy tales). It is noted for its extensive period detail and heavy use of puns and in-jokes (both period and modern) on almost every page.

The title is derived from the last verse of the British nursery rhyme Bells of St Margarets:

Here comes a candle to light you to bed; Here comes a chopper to chop off your head!
