    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jul 25, 2011

    Despite being such a mash-up of different tones and subject matter, or maybe because of it, this title achieves an almost ideal balance of weird, silliness, sobriety, and darkness. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 23, 2011

    I love the art in this series, with Shawn McManus delivering a recognizable version of both Dorothy and Cindy, while making sure that their faces are ridiculously expressive. Every single thought she has is written large across Dorothy's face, while Cinderella keeps her secrets, and the effect is the same as watching two excellent actresses duel it out on screen. Even a seeming conflict with the established Fables continuity is deftly dealt with, adding another layer of intrigue to these events. It's really hard not to love the Fabletown regulars, and it's a shame that I don't get to check in with them as often as I'd like... Cinderella: Fables Are Forever #6 hits the spot in a very personal way, avoiding talkiness with sheer energy and momentum, earning 4 out of 5 stars overall. It's good stuff. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 22, 2011

    The "Cinderella" mini-series are both a little disposable, but that's part of the fun. They're escapist spy drama mixed with the fantastical world of "Fables," and with each new installment it makes me appreciate what Roberson and McManus have put together here. And having the comics all topped off with gorgeous covers from Chrissie Zullo, well, that's just the icing on the cake. So long as Roberson and McManus want to create more "Cinderella" mini-series, I know I'll read them. It's flat-out entertaining, and that's exactly what I want from this comic. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 27, 2011

    Although I think it's a good that the series was limited to six issues, I wouldn't mind seeing Cinderella return (preferably without Dorothy) for a new adventure next year. Worth a look. Read Full Review
