When Bigby and Snow White wake up in the middle of the woods, they don't know where they are, how they got there, or why the hell they went camping with only one sleeping bag. But they've got bigger problems, as a sniper's bullet sends their car over a cliff in part 2 of "Storybook Love."

    The issue could've been a little more intense, as while the idea that Goldilocks is lurking in the woods makes for a nice underlying tension, the simple fact of the matter is that the book allows our heroes far too much time to get their ducks in a row, and the final page even introduces a lull in the action so Bigby can tell why he's suddenly developed feelings for Snow. Now I'll admit I'm quite interested in this idea, and I'm looking forward to next issue, but I also found myself a bit disappointed that Goldilocks wasn't a more immediate concern. On the other hand the situation back in the Fable community is heating up very nicely as we get a pretty solid reveal moment when we learn which Fable has decided to take a closer look at Bluebeard, and I fully imagine the little exchange these two had in the first chapter is going to make a return, except it won't be merely a friendly sparring session, and one of them won't walk away from this encounter.

    Simply put, another in a long line of solid issues from Willingham and Co. To be honest, I dont think Ive read a bad issue yet. Its good to see the Vertigo line so strong these days, and Fables should be mentioned in the same breath as Y: The Last Man and Hellblazer. Read Full Review

    It could use some captions to reaffirm the story, but other than that, this is a nice addition to the Fables library. This might not be the best week to jump on board for new or recently departed readers, but to those who have been following the book continuously; it's a nice little treat. Read Full Review
