    A light and entertaining interlude between arcs, but like all light and entertaining stories, it has a hard time keeping a hold on you after you finish reading. Read Full Review

    I'll admit, I didn't find Alder, other than her outward appearance, all that interesting. Thankfully the issue itself has enough humor to get by (even if some of it is pretty lowbrow). I did, however, really like Reyanrd and hope we see more of him here, as well as the regular Fables title, in the near future. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Nuts - Jef Mendoza Apr 22, 2013

    Reynard T. Fox tells a moral tale about his one and probably only romantic engagement with Princess Adler, the dryad. You would think naked dryad ladies would be pretty hot but this story shows that they are nasty. They may look nice on the outside but nature never intended for these plant and tree creatures to mate with flesh and blood creatures. The issue is told well enough but I feel that the punch lines could be driven harder. The jokes seem coy and smart. The characters though have dull personalities. Read Full Review

    Overall, definitely not the best issue of FAIREST I have read. Aside from the gorgeous cover by Adam Hughes, there was a lot that this issue was lacking. Although the premise of the story was kind of cute, and I did find myself chuckling at certain points, I did not think that it was Willingham's best. The art in the issue is very flat and has virtually no fluidity whatsoever. I did like that the Fox speaks to the reader in this issue, breaking the fourth wall and giving the comic a different dynamic. The reding experience feels different, interesting and fun. Having said that, the story itself could have been better executed. A self-contained issue and probably good for new readers to pick up, but definitely not something I would put at the top of my list. The issue wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either.

    At any consolation, I was worried that the bar had been set high by the Rapunzel arc, but this little issue brought the bar back down again, so the next adventure is bound to look good. Read Full Review
