I happened to be at SDCC when Adam was announced as the cover artist for the brand-new Fables spinoff, Fairest. I immediately asked Allison to put me on the list of people interested in purchasing a cover. Especially if Cinderella (the spy of the Fables universe) got a cover spot.

A couple of years and 23 issues later, I got a random text asking if I was still interested and gave me several to choose from. Almost immediately, I picked this one. A drawing of a beautiful woman made up of mice. (I don't know if I ever thought I would type that.)

It's very different, but very beautiful. It really looks like a classic Bond girl by way of the Fables universe. And — as always — the details are a real treat when you get the original up close.

I finally have a Hughes cover for my wall – and I couldn't be happier with it.

A big thank you to Allison (who packs the most solid art shipment EVER) for sending her home.

Congrats Mike, no doubt worth the wait! If I seen any other naked women, made of mice, you'll be the first to know!

This is beautiful and I never thought I'd say that about a drawing of a naked woman made up of mice.

I totally agree with you on the James Bond vibe this design has. And after seeing the inked version, I'm convinced the mouse ear on her rear end is meant to be explicit without looking like it is. In any case, congrats on a fantastic piece of artwork! You can't go wrong with Cindy drawn by Adam Hughes.

This may be one of the coolest black and white covers I've ever seen. The imagery inside the shadows are quite striking. I'm not sure what the fairest is about by AH! covers have been nothing short of spectacular. i love the 60's spy art style of this, retro yet contemporary. Congrats, amazing cover!
