Cinderella: Fables are Forever #2

“Fables are Forever” continues as Cinderella deals with the possibility that Dorothy Gale, her longtime nemesis and the greatest assassin of the Fables universe, appears to be back from the dead and back to her old tricks.

I really enjoyed the structure of this comic. The current storyline of protecting Ivan Durak is the least interesting of what is covered here, but the comic is filled with multiple flashbacks involving Cinderella’s previous encounters with Dorothy in the Soviet Union and Thailand which give us a better understanding about both women without giving too much away too soon.

I’ve also got to compliment Shawn McManus’ art which fits the story by perfectly capturing the different locales and time periods the story covers. I particularly like the artist’s closeups on the characters capturing various expressions over the course of the issue. Worth a look.
