Cinderella is an interesting character. Willingham took a spoiled princess and made her into a superspy and Roberson is fleshing her out some more with her solo adventures. This tale doesn’t just add to the story of Cindy but to the overall Fables world with the existence of a “shadow Fabletown”, a collection of the fables associated with the communist countries, or what used to be the countries.

It’s intersting to see that their overall fortunes followed the rise and fall of the actual Soviet Union.

In both this, and the main book, we are finally getting more of a look into the world of Oz. Having Dorothy Gale be an evil assassin is interesting. This issue follows Cindy as she recounts her previous encounters with Gale.

Roberson’s story is strong. His Cindy is both tough, talented and with traces of the princess to her. It’s an interesting balancing act and Roberson does it well. Equal parts adventure tale, spy thriller and fantasy. Roberson handles each part well, giving each part the amount of attention that it deserves.

McManus’ art is very nice. He toes the line between drawing beautiful women and not going overboard into cheesecake. The scenes of Cindy coming out of the shower could easily have been pure cheesecake, but McManus does a good job with showing just enough sexiness, which we know Cindy is doing to get Ivan off kilter.

His panels and pages flow smoothly. His style is a good cross between fantasy and realism.

A fun little mini-series that adds to the overall Fables story.
