Preview Mondays: BATGIRL #9 and FAIREST #3

By Alex Nagorski Monday, May 7th, 2012

For this week’s installment of Preview Mondays, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at BATGIRL #9 and FAIREST #3.

 

You may have noticed that all of the titles in the Bat family this month have one dark and sinister thing in common: the Night of the Owls. Continuing this epic crossover event, BATGIRL #9 pits Barbara against an assassin of the Court of Owls whose target just happens to be her father, Commissioner Gordon. But who is this Talon and can Barbara put a stop to the Court’s diabolical plan before it’s too late for her dad and Gotham City? BATGIRL #9 is written by Gail Simone and is illustrated by Ardian Syaf and Vicente Cifuentes. Click here to see an exclusive preview of the issue.

 

In March, you were introduced to FAIREST. Spinning out of the acclaimed world of FABLES, this new ongoing series centers around the secret histories of Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Cinderella, the Snow Queen, Thumbelina, Snow White, Rose Red and many more. Out this week, issue #3 finds Briar Rose and Ali Baba captured by the Snow Queen. But what does the Snow Queen want with them? And where do the loyalties of Ali Baba’s truly lie? FAIREST #3 is written by Bill Willingham and illustrated by Phil Jimenez, Andy Lanning and Mark Farmer. Click here to see an exclusive preview of the issue.
