QUOTE: "'I don't think they play at all fairly,' Alice began, in rather a complaining tone, 'and they all quarrel so dreadfully one can't hear one's self speak -- and they don't seem to have any rules in particular.  At least, if there are, nobody attends to them...'" óLewis Carroll

SUMMARY: At last, the Flash escapes the mirror world and returns with Captain Cold and the Mirror Master to the real world only to discover that Keystone City itself has been abducted during their absence! The city and all its occupants have vanished; they've been transported to yet another world removed from reality. A bit of detective work reveals to the Flash how they were taken and, using his mirror gun, the Mirror Master is able to transport the three men to the place of the city's banishment. They find themselves in Eastwind, a mythical world of enchanted forests and medieval villages that seems to have been constructed from nightmarish interpretations of classic fairy tales. Here, Keystone and its people have been incorporated into the dark landscape and all bow before Brother Grimm, the maddened king who sought to create a world in which the Flash did not exist.
