Fairest #2

After awaking Sleeping Beauty with true love's kiss (without the love part) the thief and princess (along with their impish friend Jonah Panghammer) find themselves on the run from the reawakened Snow Queen. As Briar Rose and Ali Baba find themselves fleeing into the cold wilderness before the Snow Queen tires of torturing the goblins who held her sleeping body captive and turns her righteous anger their way.

After being captured by Ice Giants and thrown into a sack to be taken back to the Snow Queen the unlikely threesome pass the time as Panghammer tells them the story of the Snow Queen. Well, that is until they find themselves dumped unceremoniously at her feet wanting to hear the end of the tale.

Issue #2 continues to impress, and start to give us a little more insight into Briar and the Snow Queen, but it looks like we'll have to wait at least one more issue of this opening six-issue arc before we get any real answers. Worth a look.
