GOOD THING: A great action scene in which Cinderella confronts her fairy godmother - who turns out to be the villain of the piece.
BAD THING: The subplot involving the shoemaker is rushed to a conclusion. A funny conclusion, true, but it seems like something of an afterthought compared to the rest of the story.
The Final Verdict: A solid mini-series that shows the greatness of the core concept of Fables. Pity it shows more creativity and action than the current series. Here's hoping this leads to Chris Roberson getting more work at Vertigo doing his own original projects as writing Sandman spin-offs got Bill Willingham a shot at doing Fables.
So the main book has been on a down swing? That bums me out. This is one of the few books I trade wait on. I am just up to the Great crossover. How are Jack and the Literals faring?ReplyDelete
Ooooh... That's a very spoiler heavy question. You sure you want to know before you read the crossover?ReplyDelete
I read the Crossover actually. I don't really want spoilers, more like a "Hey it is doing just dandy or a "it isn't at the level they have proven it can be".ReplyDelete
Actually, I haven't even read any Jack stories that aren't in the Crossover. I cannot believe I have slacked off on it.
