We all know the curse: She'll sleep until she's kissed by a handsome prince who loves her with true love. We have the sleeping girl. We have the handsome princes lots of them. But where's the true love? Without that, we fear she may spend a long time napping among the thorns. Oh, and memo to all you handsome princes lining up: When you hack your way into the city to kiss the girl, make sure you don't try to kiss the Snow Queen instead.This one-shot tale features art by Eisner Award winner Terry Moore (Echo, Strangers in Paradise).

    Giving regular artist Mark Buckingham a break, this issue is drawn by Terry Moore. The creator of Strangers in Paradise and Echo may not be thought of as a fantasy artist, but his style is really perfect for this book. He manages to depict a beautiful fairy tale world, some rather realistic violence, and a main character that winds up particularly haggard and beaten by the end. I know he's got a new series launching in a few months, but I hope Moore finds time to pencil an issue of this book (or Fairest) sometime in the not-too-distant future, because he's perfect for this.
