The third issue of Everafter continues the Fables spin-off’s opening arc with a twist. Remember the death of Connor Wolf which punctuated the end of the previous issue? Well, turns out the newbie spy isn’t dead. Having switched places by morphing into one of the heist crew, Connor is able to report back to The Shadow Players about the team of thieves stealing powerful Native American artifacts from museums all over the world. The trouble for Connor, however, is despite his ability to transform into any person or creature, he doesn’t gain that person’s knowledge or intelligence and, of course, is eventually found out.
The issue continues the other storylines introduced in the series first issue with death proving not to be the out-clause to his contract Hansel was expecting (although the traitor does have a contingency plan in mind) and a recuperating Bo Peep is given her unpalatable next assignment concerning the young girl bringing monstrous Fables to life at a whim. At first refusing to accept such an order, Bo Peep is shown an example of what might befall this world should the increasingly unstable girl be allowed to effect reality any further. Worth a look.
