Fairest #6

The first story arc of Fairest comes to a close. In part six of "Wide Awake" the Snow Queen faces off against Hadeon. Although last issue's final panel made it seem like Snow would be getting help from the seven faerie godmothers the issue takes an immeadiate turn as Snow has to go one-on-one against the witch.

Luckily for the Snow Queen she gets an unexpected ally when Briar Rose shows up to face the woman who tried to kill her at birth. And, as so happens when magic backfires, Briar Rose turns out to be just the right woman to put the bitch down for good.

There's plenty of action here, although the comic is constantly cutting away from it for some reason. And in the end Hadeon gets what she deserves and true to Jonah Panghammer's word Ali Baba find true love (now he just has to keep in mind her short temper).

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.
