 About the Book 

First off, I have to say that Fables is one of my favorite series of graphic novels. Its great stuff, clever, innovative, and Ive enjoyed following it for years.So its only natural that Id pick up the Cinderella spin-off. (I enjoyed that first trade) And its just as natural that the guy who runs the local comic-shop would put a copy of this second volume in my bag, just in case I was interested.And I was interested. But as I read it, my interest evaporated. Simply said, I just didnt like it.Maybe its the fact that Ive been reading a lot of Ed Brubakers stuff lately. Ed Brubaker Like Sleeper, Incognito, and Criminal. Good comics in the crime/detective/espionage genre.I think this suffered by comparison. Cinderella is supposed to be a spy, but wheres the mystery? Wheres the story? Wheres the cleverness that made me love Fables in the first place?Most of this, as the cover may indicate, seems to be an excuse to draw Cinderella in various skimpy outfits. Dont get me wrong. I enjoy looking at some scantily clad young faerie tail. But there needs to be something else there. A man has needs, specifically, some good dialogue and story.Was it horrible? No. But in terms of my enjoyment, it was only moderately okay. It didnt offend or confuse me. It wasnt full of plot holes and logical inconsistencies. It just felt.... empty.Or maybe my bloodsugar was just low that day. Thats a possibility too....
