This was a good story and good art in the tradition of the Fables series (where it spins off from), but I found it somewhat incomprehensible at points. Perhaps it was the tie-ins to Japanese folklore (of which I am ignorant) or asides to build plot, or rapid shifts into and out of flashbacks, but I was lost at several points, and I know this tale could have been so much better with a little more inclusiveness for the audience (a skill at which Mr. Willingham excels, without talking down).
Not enough to make me abandon the series, but I hope the next one returns to the high standards of Fairest, Vol. 1: Wide Awake and the Fables series.
