Snow Whites life has been shattered in more ways than one. With no one else to turn to, to save her from the ruthless Prince Brandish, who claims to be her only legitimate husband, she has no other choice but to take up arms in her own defense. She received fencing lessons from Prince Charming long ago. Will she remember them well enough now?

    The art was great as always, and it was definitely a step in the right direction for the book. My general qualm for the book remains which is why I won't get any higher than that (which perhaps seems a bit loaded or snarky, like when my third grade teacher gave me a D+ from D to show I was "improving"), but I want to see the book truly excel again. I think that potential is definitely there, and if anyone can lead us out of the dark it's Snow White. Read Full Review

    What made this issue really great was the fact we finally caught up to present time in which Therese comes back home! That could only mean all of our questions will finally be answered! Read Full Review

    "Fables" #129 is a rather bleak conclusion to "Snow White," but it felt right. Bad times have been coming to Snow White and her family (especially after the Toyland story) and it feels like it's not over by a long shot. For now, though, it's immensely entertaining to read. Bring it on. Read Full Review

    Even though there's still plenty left to do and no end has been announced for the series, as of this issue, it feels like we're getting close. More storylines are being tied up than added. If Fablescan keep turning out issues like this one, the series' eventual end will be poignant indeed. Read Full Review

    There's no doubt the events of this issue are important, but more for a later time and circumstance rather than the here and now. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 22, 2013

    I've had very mixed feelings about this arc which cast Snow in the role of victim for fall too long. Although she finally gets some justice, the loss of Bigby actually makes it feel like Brandish is the real victor here. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review
