'Everafter Vol. 1: The Pandora Protocol' by Lilah Sturges and Dave Justus brings together the first 6 issues of Everafter: From the Pages of Fables. It's best to have an understanding of who these characters are before diving into this volume.
It's a post-Fables world, but some of Fables find themselves still around and working for the Shadow Players, kind of a James Bond type spy agency led by a guy named Feathertop. While Bo Peep, Peter Piper and Hansel are trying to get to St. Louis to capture/stop a new threat, something horrific happens. Meanwhile, Connor Wolf, shapeshifter and uncontrollable braggart, is introduced to Feathertop as a new agent. Will Connor be a help or a hindrance or will Peter Piper end up killing him first?
It does lack something that the original creator, Bill Willingham, brought to the series, but it still holds up as a concept. The new weird threat they are after is darn creepy, even if she reminded me of a character from The Twilight Zone. The art is solid. I liked this book and I'd like to read more in this new series.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Vertigo, DC Entertainment, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
