'Everafter: From the Pages of Fables #2" by Dave Justus and Matt Sturges with art by Travis Moore was probably not a good place for me to start this series. I'm familiar with Fables, but based on the opening panels, a lot has happened.
Hansel has been, well murdered might be an understatement. There is not much of a chance of reconstructive surgery. Peter Piper and Bo Peep seem to have evaded the same fate. Meanwhile, Connor Wolf is showing up for his initiation with Feathertop. He's also showing off since he uses his shapeshifting ability with everyone he meets. He's barely introduced to the team, when he is sent off on a mission to protect a museum. His energetic carelessness and Peter's weary wariness are at odds.
There is a lot at play here and I liked it, but there seems to be more history than just one prior issue. That's fine for fans of the books, but left me a bit lost. That's on me, not the quality of the book or art. Is it wrong for me to say that I'm already a fan of Jordan and Mister Prism?
I received a review copy of this issue from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this issue.
