From School Library Journal

Grade 10 Up—In this spin-off of Bill Willingham's "Fables" series (Vertigo), Cinderella is a covert agent: her cover is a shoe store called The Glass Slipper. In her latest assignment, "Cindy" must work with handsome but infuriating Aladdin to find out who is sneaking weapons between Fableland and the outside world. Could it be Cinderella's fairy godmother? Roberson effectively integrates fairy-tale and nursery-rhyme characters into a complex, action-packed spy caper worthy of Alias or James Bond. The superhero-style illustrations are detailed and expressive. Some strong language and adult situations make this most appropriate for older teens.—Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

Customer Reviews

Cinderella is my favorite spinoff from Fables.
A. Gutierrez
Like the other books in the original series, this one is full of high-quality art, interesting but meandering plot lines and snappy dialog.
Paige Turner
A lot of fun and a fast read, this is a must for any Fables fan.

Bill Willingham's "Fables" franchise has become the big thing at the Vertigo publishing imprint, and in the last few years it has started to generate spinoffs, most notably the "Jack of Fables" ongoing series co-written by Willingham and Matthew Sturges. The latter series has increasingly become the primary responsibility of Sturges, with Willingham focusing on writing the main "Fables" title. The "Cinderella: From Fabletown With Love" miniseries nevertheless represents a significant milestone in the history of the franchise: the first property without Bill Willingham's name on it. Instead, we have writer Chris Roberson, a sci-fi writer and sometime collaborator of Willingham and Sturges' in the "Clockwork Storybook" writing group; the artist, Shawn McManus, has made some contribution to other "Fables" titles in the past. Spoilers follow.

Our protagonist is Cinderella, of course - everbody knows her story. Cindy underwent one of the most radical revisions of the major Fables characters, becoming a super-spy in the service of Fabletown, while operating under the cover of running a shoe store. It's not especially connected to her past backstory, which might make it seem a bit random, but Willingham in the past has been able to write a very plausible spy, and Roberson likewise proves up to the task. In this instance, Cindy is on the trail of a magical weapons shipment that has reportedly been sent into the Mundy world. In pursuit of her task, she travels to Dubai (the Las Vegas of the Middle East), and finds herself teamed up with none other than Aladdin, who is operating on behalf of the Arabian Fable world. The two form your typical spy movie duo, and proceed on the case.

If you've been following along with Fables, you know about Cinderella & how she serves as a spy for Fabletown in general. If you haven't been following along with the story, I really do suggest that you go back & read at least up until volume 7-8. While some readers new to the series might be able to follow along with the story, there's a few things in this volume that would be considered spoilers to readers only familiar with the first few volumes.

From Fabletown with Love follows Cinderella as she's sent to investigate reports of magical items landing in the hands of the mundy. What she discovers is a smuggling ring trafficking in magical weapons that leads her all the way back to the Homelands. Along the way she runs across the dashing Aladdin, a spy for his own Arabian Homeland. Together they must discover who exactly is behind this & stop them for good!

While I'll admit that this wasn't as strong as the regular Fables comics, this isn't bad for a spinoff. I loved seeing more of Cinderella's past as well as seeing her in full spy action. She doesn't have a huge amount of appearances in the main series so it was nice to see her getting the spotlight for once.

The only drawback is that we don't get as deep a look into Cindy's head as I'd like & I do wish we'd seen a bit of her doing her training. The part with Crispin (her help at the shoestore) is OK enough, but was easily the weakest part of the comic & it could have been removed entirely without it being missed overly much. Overall though, this is a fine addition to the series.

4.5/5

"My name is Cinderella. Cindy to my friends. Don't tell anyone, but I'm a spy..."

Bill Willingham's "Fables" series has always specialized in giving odd twists to traditional folk/fairy tale/fiction characters, and one of the more underused characters has always been Cinderella. And while Willingham didn't come up with "Cinderella: From Fabletown With Love," it's a fun gender-flipped spin on the James Bondian cliche.

After a deadly encounter atop Big Ben, Cindy flies home to Fabletown and her much-neglected shoe store (well, what else would she be running?). But then the new police chief Beast arrives to tell her of a new threat to the Fables and their secret town -- newcomers are apparently coming through the gates from the Homelands, and magical items are falling into Mundy hands. What's worse, nobody really knows whodunnit.

So of course, Cindy leaps headlong into the case, with a bit of help from Frau Totenkinder's magic-sensing ring -- and after a close call in a luxe hotel, she teams up with her Middle-Eastern counterpart Aladdin. Soon it's revealed that there's much more than smuggling and illegal immigration involved, sending them into the arctic world of Ultima Thule... and someone Cindy knows too well.

And while all this is going on in Dubai, Cindy's assistant Crispin is using her shop to turn himself into the newest fashion mogul in Manhattan. Unfortunately, the shoes have some... well, unpleasant side effects.

Magic carpets, genies, parachutes, shoemaking elves, Jenny Wren and some very obscure figures from the Arabian Nights.
