Cinderella, Vol 2 - Fables Are Forever
I read this last week and haven't had time to jot down my thoughts. What I like a lot about this is what I miss about the Fables series in general. It's got a real sense of fun and mixing with characters - the characters in Fables currently just don't feel like they're all that connected to the original material all that much anymore, and I miss it a touch. But here we've got a James Bond-esque story with Cinderella as our super-spy, and it's so much fun. This story juxtaposes the past and present showing her going toe-to-toe with one of her greatest foes and I won't ruin who that is for you here. The story plays with a bit of a twist near the end, which is tremendous fun, but I question if the logic of it stands up at all. If you're into Fables you'll want to check out this series, it reminds you what you loved about the world in the first place.
