Fairest #26

"Of Men and Mice" comes to a close and Cinderella and her friends fight off a mouse invasion of the Fabletown castle which Snow White is certain was planned (it was) and executed (it wasn't) by Prince Brandish.

The final issue of the arc certainly sees plenty of action as Cindy and her group punch, stab, kick, and skewer an ungodly number of crazed mice warriors before the arrival of Cinderella's fairy godmother whose original spell laid the work for the current chaos and shows up just in time to help end it.

I've enjoyed this arc and I'm sad to see it coming to an end realizing with the end of both this title and Fables it's likely the last major Cinderella story we're going to get. As the character who hooked me on this world, I'll miss her most of all. Hopefully we'll see Cindy step in to help fight off Leigh's intended chicanery, but if not I'm happy to see the character go out kicking some serious butt in style one more time. Worth a look.
