Overview

New York Times bestselling, award-winning creator Bill Willingham presents a new series starring the female 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 Volume 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.

This is NOT the single issue version of "Fairest". It contains ALL of the issues for the Briar Rose/ Snow Queen story arc. It also has a second shorter story about Beauty's origin, and it isn't the Disney version. Seriously dark story with serial killing. The art is great. Its done in the same style of the "Fables" series. If you like that, then you will like this one. Also, it is done in full color on the Nook. It seems well suited for the Nook Tablet and you can zoom in, if needed. Buy this book! Do not waste your money buying each issue separately. Currently, I am looking for the second complete book. No luck yet, but I will post a review letting you know what's what. -AvidReader

This series is weird. Love the art style though.
