Fairest, Vol. 1: Wide Awake

Fairest, Vol. 1: Wide Awake - Phil Jimenez, Bill Willingham Fairest is the newest series featuring the world of Fables, and this time it centers on the princesses. In Wide Awake, we follow a thief who tries to rouse two sleeping beauties, and contends with a garrulous fairy who just gets annoying after a while. I remember little bits and pieces of the story, but I've already forgotten the details of the overall story. I thought the volume was pretty weak. I think the world of Fables is getting diluted with these other series, especially when the main series is already using the better ideas. This volume was written by Willingham, but it looks like the later volumes will be written by other people. But really, I don't expect to read any more of it, so who's writing it is irrelevant.
