Everafter #4

The Fables spin-off continues as Connor Wolf's slip of the tongue gets the green agent in trouble. Discovered, Connor attempts to fight himself out the predicament, but largely outnumbered The Shadow Players latest agent soon finds himself captured which springs Peter Piper into action and join the fray.

With the agents more concerned about their own, Everafter #4 takes an unexpected turn. The ritual of the artifact thieves goes wrong when one of their own makes a dangerous move during the summon spell that releases a host of ghosts on an unsuspecting world. Reunited, thanks to Connor's shape-shifting ability and Peter's magic flute, the pair will have to figure out a way to put the genie back in the bottle before all hell breaks loose.

For a second straight issue Bo Peep draws the short straw getting relegated to the B-story. However, based on her new orders the series should come full circle to reunite the agent with the dangerous young girl whose powers could threaten the world (if the ghosts don't destroy it first). Worth a look.
