I'm sorry that with travel plans I hadn't had a chance to comment, but here I am.
Another very brief issue, which probably reads better in TPB format. The toyland story is not really doing it for me, but I don't it's SUPPOSED to be doing it for anybody at this time. We'll see.
Liked Beauty's legs in thos pages with her and Beast in Haven. Reminds of why she's called Beauty. Would be an interesting thing if they DID stay in Haven (I would think that they are both free to do whatever they think is best for them and their daughter - no implied obligation to go back to NYC if they don't feel like it).
In re: Leigh/Mrs. Spratt, it seems odd to me that Snow or Rose Red didn't notice that she wasn't around in Haven. It's possible they did, but that King Cole just didn't know (BTW - there's a lovely stained glass image of King Cole in the Stained Glass Museum at Navy Pier in Chicago, should anybody pass by there).
My one historical complaint with BW and Fables is that dialogue is not Bill's strength I didn't really like the dialogue in the Leigh/Mrs. Spratt's sequence. But that's just me.
In any case, the art was wonderful, as always.
As to the back-up, I think I'm going to hold on reading it until it's complete, at which time I'll read it complete (3 pages are just too little to read at a time, and this comes from a follower of Dark Horse Presents's current incarnation).
