Following the attempted assassination of her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella continues to search for answers as to the identity of the person in control of the rat men’s attacks on Snow White and pulling the strings of the assassin sent to dispatch her godmother. Jumping around the globe, Cinderella will reunite with an old lover, finding a moment of peace in the eye of the storm, before also discovering that an old friend and enemy both mixed up in things.
The end of the issue brings Cinderella face-to-face with her stepsister (who has just shot a second person Cinderella cares for in front of her) setting up what should be a not-so-nice sisterly reunion next month.
Fairest #23 also gives quite a bit of time to one of the house rats turned into a man for Cinderella’s ball who has stayed human all these years (no turning back into a pumpkin for him) and may be the first real clue as allow Cinderella to discover what is going on. Worth a look.
