Shawn McManus again delivers some stellar pages, using every inch to tell the story and every panel to show off his penchant for period work. In the opening of the issue, there's a nice throwback to the classic story of the Wizard of Oz, but with the appropriate twist to center it right in the middle of the Fables universe. The only detriment to this issue is the stylistic choice of colorist Lee Loughridge to color the flashback sequences in washed out hues and sepia tones. Because these sequences are so frequent, a huge bulk of this book is presented as such and it can become tiresome at points.
