Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love (NOOK Comics with Zoom View)by Chris Roberson
When supernatural artifacts from the Homelands begin surfacing in the modern world, it falls to Cinderella, Fabletown's best kept (and best dressed) secret agent to stop the illegal trafficking. But can Cindy foil the dark plot before Fabletown and its hidden, exiled inhabitants are exposed once and for all? And how does her long lost Fairy Godmother factor into the equation?
Whether she's soaring through clouds, deep-sea diving, or cracking jaws, Cindy travels from Manhattan to Dubai and hooks up with a handsome, familiar accomplice who may be harboring secret motives of his own. Meanwhile, trouble brews back home in Fabletown when Cindy's overworked, underappreciated assistant decides to seize control of The Glass Slipper, Cindy's exclusive shoe boutique.

This first "Cinderella" book was fairly short, but it did cover an entire story arc. (Cindy meets Aladdin) At least there aren't any loose ends at the story's conclusion. It is a reasonable length, but shorter than the average "Fables" compilation book. The idea behind "Cinderella" is that it is a side-story or sub-plot to show the reader what Cindy gets up to when she is not working at her shoe shop. She is a spy for the Fabletown sheriff. (Not a spoiler since she says that she is a spy on page two.) She goes on various missions. She meets other fables and cleverly stops the bad guys. It is too bad that the other fables view her so poorly. She does a lot for her hometown that nobody, but us and the sheriff, will ever know. This can be read as a stand alone book. But, it is better if you have read a few of the "Fables" books. I liked it. If you like the "Fables" graphic novel series, then you will probably like this book too. What I did not like was that the art style seemed to change in each chapter. I prefer continuity in a comic. Regardless, I recommend this book highly, even if I did have one complaint. -AvidReader
