Back-stories from the Fables universe. ( )

this one's a little unfocused, although i applaud Bill Willingham's attempt to give a little more spotlight time to the Fable women in this spinoff. best concept goes to the last story, written by Matthew Sturges, which combines an origin story for Beauty and the Beast with the Lamia folklore, thereby shedding a whole different light on some, you know, stuff. but at any rate i'll definitely be getting in this whole series to see what else they might get up to in the corners.

This is a series that features the beautiful women of Fabletown. In this first issue we see how Ali Baba, Prince of Thieves is torn between Sleeping Beauty and The Snow Queen. With a short story at the end that explains a lot about The Beast and his Beauty, noir style. I have to say that Briar Rose is not one of my favorite characters and I think Ali Baba made the right choice when he decided that he prefers Lumi, the Snow Queen.

I think these are going to be a fun addition to the Fables storyline, after all, it pretty obvious that there is more to every Fable than what we see on the surface and I am looking forward to learning more about the women of Fables. ( )

That's really all I have to say about this book. ( )

I feel like I waited forever to read this (possibly b/c I have been excited about it since I first heard about it and waited for it to come out in trade paperback to read it.) Ali Baba saves the Snow Queen and Sleeping Beauty; giving the reader the opportunity to learn how the Snow Queen was forced to join with Gepetto, and how Sleeping Beauty's curse came about. I loved the battle with Hadeon the Destroyer and I'm very curious about where both the relationships at the end and the existing story line is going. ( )
