Great, yet still lacks the initial oomph of the first 2 books

The 4th & final book of the Nightmares & Fairy Tales series shows a return to it's roots by once again adapting fairytale creatures & stories. The stories in this book include a sleeping beauty tale as well as a mermaid tale that takes it's roots not only from mer-tales, but also from H.P. Lovecraft. The first story takes place in the present day & includes Gwen as she meets a lively young girl who may or may not be a ghost. The second story takes place in the past, but doesn't really include Annabelle. It involves a freak show owner who exploits a beautiful mermaid in a jar for his own profit. The only thing that keeps her at bay is his making threats towards her baby. While I enjoyed these stories, they just didn't grab me the way the initial volumes did. The artwork is beautifully done & suits the stories, but they just don't grab me the way the first volumes did. Even so, this is definately something that indie comics fans will want to read. 4.5/5
