Comics: Preview of new Fables comic "Fairest"

"On sale now from Vertigo is Fairest #1, the first issue of the latest spinoff from Bill Willingham's popular and hugely acclaimed Fables series. The new book stars Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow White and, in Willingham's words, anyone who could be interpreted as "fairest in the land." Announced at the Fables panel at last year's Comic-Con International in San Diego, Fairest will feature covers by Adam Hughes, who is of course famous for his depictions of beautiful women." (Full article and preview)
It includes awesome preview images like this:

While I am a little concerned that publicity seems to focus only on their beauty, and not on their kickass-itude (Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty are secret agents, Snow White and Rose Red are great leaders, Ozma is a powerful witch, etc), I know Bill Willingham's team will tell great stories about these amazing and strong female characters.
