Overview

All nine issues of the long awaited crossover between Vertigo's two popular series Fables and Jack of Fables are collected here.

The world of Fables is introduced to a whole new set of characters...The Literals. The Literals are characters that embody, literally, different literary genres such as Mystery, Comedy and Romance. One of The Literals goes by the name The Storymaker, one who can vanquish the world of Fables with one stroke of his pen.

When Jack discovers the existence of The Literals and their leader Kevin Thorn aka The Storymaker, Jack must leave his own book and crossover to the world of Fables to warn Fabletown about Kevin Thorn. Does the The Storymaker plan to close the book on the Fables universe once and for all?

The Great Fables Crossover features appearances from Fables favorites such as Snow White, Bigby Wolf, Rose Red, Jack Frost,
Beauty and The Beast.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The appeal of Fables has always been the reimagining of fairy tale characters as if they were as messy and screwed up as real people; the characters are divorcées, drunks, womanizers, and overall flawed beings. In this crossover of all the Fables characters from various spinoff books, Kevin Thorn, the creator of the world and its stories, is angry such liberties were taken with his characters and is determined to destroy the Fablesverse and start over. The regular Fables cast, Snow White, Bigby Wolf, and Jack (the one with the beanstalk)—with a few additions such as gun-toting embodiments of the library sciences and Thorn’s son, Mister Revise—try to stop Thorn before he writes them and the rest of the world out of existence. Unfortunately, most of what could be good ideas becomes burdensome, with zigzagging plot twists that bog down the pace. There are a lot of “meanwhiles,” and interesting side points and characters, but the overall plot is lacking. (Feb.)

    An interesting concept for a 'side' story of the series.

    I found the literals to be pretty fun. Hopefully they'll pop up again; perhaps in their own mini series or something. It's a nice reprieve from the "Mr. Dark" threat. I'd definitely recommend this one.

    Fables Volume 13

    This entire series is worth a read. This volume deviates a little from the previous story line, but is still very entertaining. A must for graphic novel fans.
