    I love the choice of returning artist Shawn McManus to draw the character (as he did for both Cinderella: Fables are Forever and Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love) and I'm looking forward to see where he and writer Marc Andreyko take Cinderella from here. Best of the week. Read Full Review

    Overall this was a great setup issue for the “Of Mice and Men” storyline and while not perfect or terribly exciting, it was a great read for Fables fan. This story arc has a lot to live up to and it started off well. Read Full Review

    "Fairest" #21 is an enjoyable and visually attractive read, but the story has yet to prove itself. "Of Men and Mice" is still in set-up mode, so it's hard to judge how the mystery and the rest of Andreyko's script will play out, but it's a promising start. Read Full Review

    Fairest #21 serves as a great issue for Fables fans, but may feel like falling off a cliff for Fairest-only readers. The abrupt change in the design of Fairest makes the read somewhat difficult but still enjoyable. As a result, the Fairest-only reader will feel more inclined to look up these new characters and throw themselves into the world of Fables as well. Read Full Review
