The Fables at the Farm are now in open revolt, and the always practical, always proper Snow White finds herself at the top of the radicals' hit list. Her adversaries number in the hundreds, while her only ally seems to be the crass and wily Reynard the Fox. Together, to get to the truth, the two fugitives have to make their way to the caves beyond the Valley of the Sleepers. But first they have to survive crossing the tall grass, which belongs to the ravenous Shere Khan.

    I was already enjoying this story a great deal, so the accelerated pace that this issue brings to the story has me fully convinced that this book can do no wrong. This book is a wonderfully crafted affair that it delivers on every level, from harrowing action as Snow White faces off against Shere Khan, to some truly amusing dialogue, as Reynard's attempt to charm Snow White was a delightful exchange. There's also a nice sense of wonder in the scene where Snow encounters the sleeping giants, and this sequence also does a solid job of making it clear that the Adversary must be one powerful customer if he's able to drive these creatures away from their homelands. I also have to say that while it's a little moment, the scene where Snow actively breaks down after killing Shere Khan is a great character moment, as it shows a very human side that the character rarely displays. One also has to love the cliffhanger that this issue delivers, as Rose Red makes her move against her sister. Read Full Review
