fun side project of the Fables franchise
on October 13, 2010
Bill Willingham's Fables series of graphic novels is a treasure -- great storylines, excellent graphics and tremendous characters. As far as I know, this is the first member of the group without Willingham's name on it, but it doesn't seem to suffer *too* much. I preferred this entry to the tiresome Jack stories, but still prefer the main Fables books in general.
In this edition, Cinderella -- nominally a shoe store owner but really a superspy for Fabletown -- teams up with Aladdin to discover who's been smuggling magical objects into our mundy world. Fine art but without the greater impact of a Fabletown story. (I can't believe I just wrote that, but I'll stick by it.)
