The concluding chapter of Wide Awake! Jonah Panghammer, bottle imp extraordinaire, had a plan: Ali Baba would find a treasure so rich he could give up thieving. Briar Rose would wake up and be allowed to go home. The Snow Queen would finally realize what her life could be like without the evil empire. And Jonah himself would be free to go his own way for once. Too bad Hadeon the Destroyer showed up to ruin everything.

    Fairest #6 delivers a very satisfying ending to its' first story arc. Everyone gets their own story resolved in some manner and just desserts are severed to those whom deserve them. Bill Willingham does a spectacular job sending the story out on a lighter note, showcasing his brand of humor longtime readers of Fable's have come to know and love. Make no mistake; the humor doesn't cheapen the story or the ending in anyway. It's just nice to see our characters get what we feel is owed to them; especially that dastardly rouge Ali Baba.

    While not exactly the breakout hit you might expect from the creator of Fables, it's an appropriate successor to his trophy title, and at the least, it's provided some outstandingly beautiful art. Read Full Review

    You can't take away from the impressive overall scope of this first Fairest arc, or the character moments created within. Willingham's sly smile does show through a little too clearly in the end, though, as readers may be imagining the script coming from the writer's mouth instead of his characters' mouths.

    The series may not quite go out with a bang. It's still quite good but I'm ready for the comic to move in a different direction. Next month brings us a new arc featuring Beauty and the Beast in 1940′s Los Angeles. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Dave Conde Aug 10, 2012

    I don't want to say that Willingham is writing for the trade, but I don't know how else to finish this sentence. That's not all bad. The full arc is a great story and when you read all of it, this issue is a wonderful ending. If they recapped everything each issue, it would take up at least 6-8 pages of the total story and repeatedly kill the story's momentum. I give Fairest #6 3.5 out of 5 Stars, although I would give the eventual trade 4 or 4.5. The trade will rock. You should buy it. You will enjoy reading it and owning it. Of course, I read it in the original issues... Read Full Review
