    This story arc is completely original, and for the cover price of $2.99, it's definitelyone of the fairest (I knew you'd appreciate that pun) titles in terms of value for your buck. InakiMiranda's artwork continues to be absolutely riveting"each panel is loaded with detail"makingthis particular issue freakishly haunting. I have goosebumps just thinking about it"or is that from theChristmas edition catalog? Either way, do yourself a favor and grab this title! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Danielle Luaulu Jan 12, 2013

    Lauren Beukes and Inaki Miranda's work on the Hidden Kingdom story arc has been stellar. Even though Mayumi's story turned out to be a bit of a cop-out, it's not enough to out-do what's becoming an epic addition to the Fables universe. With an original take on a classic heroine and dream-like artwork, this is one you must pick up if you've been following the story so far. Read Full Review

    With two more issues left in the arc, Rapunzel must now face her past the awful “children” she gave life to in her deepest despair. The bezoars are still “alive” and have been waiting all this time for the return of their mother. As to the mystery of her real children and the reasons for leading Rapunzel back to the well, we'll just have to wait and see what else Lauren Beukes has in store for us and our heroine. Worth a look. Read Full Review
