This issue is all set up for the story we are about to recieve, it is basically a meet the players kind of issue. Not bad at all as set up issues go. The dialogue is intense, and I appreciate seeing the story from the side of the evil empire. Make no mistake, there is no gray side here, these guys are evil. The back up story about Rapunzel is pretty good also. Because of the witches curse she can only go out into the mundy world for two or three hours at a time. Because her hair grows four inches an hour. It's a short yet insightful little story. Very good.
