    In this first FAIREST TP, collecting issues #1-7, Sleeping Beauty has been awakened again by true love's kiss. But the thief Ali Baba doesn't seem a likely candidate for knowing true love from a day-old cruller. So how did this kiss work? Plus: Briar Rose captured by the Snow Queen! Seven good fairy godmothers and one really bad one! And much more!

    Back Blurb


    They call her Sleeping Beauty, but life's always been ugly for Princess Briar Rose. Cursed at birth by a pissed-off fairy godmother, she wound up acting a s one-woman weapon of mass destruction against the Adversary in the last days of his war against the Free Fables. She won the day, but at the cost of sending herself into a permanent nap from which only true love's kiss can awaken her.

    Few would have guessed that it would be Ali Baba, Prince of Thieves,w ho would rise to the challenge --- or that he'd be accompanied by an obnoxious, not-quite-a-genie sidekick. But as Briar Rose's true origin is revealed, can this no-longer-sleeping beauty and her Prince Charmless escape the cold fury of the Adversary's former right-hand woman --- the icily regal Snow Queen?

    Find out if Sleeping Beauty's resurrection is a dream or a nightmare in WIDE AWAKE, collecting issues 1-7 of the ongoings FAIREST series from FABLES creator Bill Willingham and a star-studded stable of collaborators --- including Phil Jimenez, Andy Lanning, Matthew Sturges and Shawn McManus!

    Even though this got confusing at times and I really didn't care for Jonah Panghammer's character, I did enjoy this new spin-off.
