Cinderella: From Fabletown With Love full solicitation copy

The solicitations for DC Comics products shipping in November were released yesterday, and lookee here what was nestled snugly in the listings for Vertigo titles...

Cover by Chrissie Zullo
When supernatural artifacts from the Homelands begin surfacing in the modern world, it falls to Cinderella, Fabletown's best kept (and best dressed) secret agent to stop the illegal trafficking. But can Cindy foil the dark plot before Fabletown and its hidden, exiled inhabitants are exposed once and for all? And how does her long lost Fairy Godmother factor into the equation?
Whether she's soaring through clouds, deep-sea diving, or cracking jaws, Cindy travels from Manhattan to Dubai and hooks up with a handsome, familiar accomplice who may be harboring secret motives of his own. Meanwhile, trouble brews back home in Fabletown when Cindy's overworked, underappreciated assistant decides to seize control of The Glass Slipper, Cindy's exclusive shoe boutique.
Writer Chris Roberson (occasional contributor to HOUSE OF MYSTERY and JACK OF FABLES), artist Shawn McManus (SANDMAN, THESSALY: WITCH FOR HIRE) and evocative new cover painter Chrissie Zullo deliver Cindy's first major solo adventure replete with sex, spies and magical shoes in the 6-issue CINDERELLA: FROM FABLETOWN WITH LOVE.
On Sale November 4 • 1 of 6 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • MATURE READERS
Hey, sounds like that might be worth checking out, right?

I was going to be buying this as soon as I heard, but damn don't you always luck out with great covers?

Granted, the Fables franchise always has great covers. Really, how can you go wrong with James Jean and/or Brian Bolland? This one, I thought, was Tara McPherson.
Unless I'm mistaken this is Chrissie Zullo's first professional work (she was picked out of DC's talent search at San Diego last year), and if the quality of the work is any indication this will be *far* from the last time you'll be seeing her name.
You know I signed up for this *last* summer. I can't wait to read it. And if I ask nicely, maybe we can do a S'Tart interview?
Adrienne, you don't even have to ask nicely! Shoot me an email and I'll put you in touch with the PR folks at Vertigo so they can get you an early copy of I, Zombie #1 before we do the interview.
Wow, looks great! I can't wait. Any plans for collecting the miniseries in trade?
I'd be surprised if they didn't collect it.
