In part 3 of The Hidden Kingdom, Rapunzel kicks ass when hungry ghosts and angry Yakuza storm the skyscraper. Meanwhile, Bigby and Frau Totenkinder arrive in Japan only to get captured by local Harijuku girls. And back in the dark, simmering pit that is the witching well, something is stirring and it wants out.

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Dec 10, 2012

    Fairest keeps the narrative of a fairy-tale, effectively suspending all levels of belief, and taking the reader to another world that has interwoven itself in the mundane (mundie) world and the art alone is spectacular. Adam Hughes’ covers alone are worth the issue (personally) but upon opening the pages, a reveal of great, great happenings presents itself. Overall, Fables and Fairest especially shouldn't be overlooked because it's a gripping series (particularly for those who enjoy fantasy or princesses kicking butt) and currently they're giving out a great story with Rapunzel that shouldn't be missed.

    You could do without the passionless romantic tension, but overall, another impressive outing by Beukes and Miranda. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 14, 2012

    Although the cliffhanger works pretty well, the story behind it isn't as clear as I'd like (especially for an issue that finally spends time to explain the past and motives of our main character). However, once again Fairest delivers one of the best comics of the month. I wouldn't expect anything less. If you aren't reading this comic you are missing out on one of the few bright spots in comics this year. Worth a look. Read Full Review
