We’re supposed to feel for the heroine of NEW ROMANCER; she’s been fired from her job, works for a tiny matchmaking site that is going out of business, and she’s a giant fan of classical literature. Unfortunately for us, she was fired for stealing important assets and messing up experiments, she’s not serious about her current job, and her infatuation with dead writers keeps her from seeing the potential in people in front of her.
A while back I read a blog post (I can’t remember where) extolling the virtues of the Fables series of comics/graphic novels. I picked up Fables Volume 1 and have been hooked ever since! So, when FAIREST IN ALL THE LAND showed up, I knew I had to read it. FAIREST IN ALL THE LAND is a stand-alone graphic novel set in the same world as the Fables and Fairest series, with a murder mystery and a magic mirror subplot, and is as enchanting as all the others, with lovely artwork by many different artists.
