I might have been a little late getting into Fables but once I did, I devoured the first few trades. Fables is simply a great book. Part of it could be that I have a young daughter who was into some of these 'fables' and seeing them in a different light was pretty cool. Let's just be clear, Fables is not a book for children. The books is extremely well written and has always had great art in its arcs. Now we're seeing one of the characters, Cinderella, jumping out of Fables and into her own mini-series.
So this isn't the Cinderella you might remember. That is what is great about Fables. We see these old characters given new life. You won't look at the old stories from your youth the same again. I mentioned my distraught when I discovered that Fables creator Bill Willingham wasn't writing this series. You can see from my rating that writer Chris Roberson does a great job. I didn't have anything to worry about. The art by Shawn McManus simply fits in perfectly with the world of Fables.
If you've ever read Fables, you'll love seeing Cinderella taking the spotlight once again. If you haven't read Fables yet, you can easily jump into this book and follow the events. I really think you'll dig the idea of Fables once you do. So if you're a fan or if you're looking for something different from the superheroes, check out Cinderella's book and see her kick some butt.
