Fairest #29

The latest issue of Fairest splits its attention continuing to examine Reynard's misadventures with the angry family of the beautiful farm girl he bedded in their barn (who may not be quite as much of Deliverance cliches as the previous issue suggested) and the continued clamor of the various Fables of The Farm over the five available glamours which will soon be up for grabs in the coming lottery.

More intriguing than Reynard's tale, the main story on The Farm this month centers around Owl and his wife the Pussycat whose dreams of traveling with her husband to various exotic locales have only intensified since the news of the lottery for the five new glamours.

The Owl and Pussycat story is worth picking up, especially given the husband's sweet attempt to give his wife a small taste of what she's been missing for hundreds of years, but even with the twist Reynard's tale is taking up far too many pages of the series limited number of issues for my liking. For fans.
