New York Times bestselling, award-winning creator Bill Willingham presents a new series starring the beautiful, deadly ladies from his hit series FABLES. Balancing horror, humor and adventure in the FABLES tradition, FAIREST explores the secret histories of Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Cinderella, The Snow Queen, Thumbelina, Snow White, Rose Red and others.

The first 6-issue tale follows the misadventures of Briar Rose immediately after the events of FABLES #107(collected in FABLES VOL. 16: SUPER TEAM), in which she was stolen away by the goblin army. Following this first collection, Willingham will serve as a consultant on all story arcs and introduce new writers from other mediums to the FABLES mythos.

Fan-favorite artist Phil Jimenez (WONDER WOMAN, THE INVISIBLES) returns to Vertigo to pencil the opening storyline. Award-winning cover artist Adam Hughes (WONDER WOMAN, BATGIRL) provides covers, starting with a wraparound cover on issue #1 that spotlights the lovely ladies who will star in the series.

Eh, it was okay. I'm not sure what else I could say about it. The drawings were well done, although I disagree with how the women are portrayed. What's new about that in a graphic novel? It was hard to understand the correct "plane of existence" the "world" was in. Tried to tie a lot of different stories together, kind of alright. Some weird twists on fairy tales, especially the last one.

First off, the art is gorgeous, but that's to be expected for DC. The story is fun, nothing special certainly, but fun. They even managed to pull of the wisecracking sidekick without getting too annoying about it. So, fun junk food reading, not much more.
