    Not your average kiddie fairie tales.

    The general premise of the Fables series is that various characters from fairy tales and folklore were driven from their storybook homelands by a mysterious Adversary, into modern day Manhattan where they have a secret community called Fabletown. The book follows the source material a lot closer than Disney, with whom the writer has a lot of problems, but there are also a lot of new twists. For example, Prince Charming is the same prince in all the stories, and is really a womanizer, going from one princess to the next when he gets bored with his current wife. And the big bad wolf has reformed and is Fabletown's only lawman. In this fourth volume to the series, we find out in a flashback about Boy Blue's lover, Red Riding Hood, and how she died. However, someone who claims to be Red, and looks just like Red, has just escaped into the real world, and seems assylum in Fabletown. Three wooden soldiers also come to spy out the lay of the land, all of which leads to a battle on the streets of NYC, between the fables and the wooden soldiers of the Adversary. Also in this story arc, are all the clues to the Adversary's true identity. Bill Willingham's Fables just gets better and better exponentially with each story arc, and this is the best and most exciting by far. And Mark Buckingham's is doing his best work yet on this series, not to mention the stunning, beautiful covers by James Jean, including a new wraparound cover for this book. (See the covers at www.jamesjean.com) It's arguably the best in comics these days, a welcome retreat from tired and cliched superhero comics. I heartily reccomend this book.

    Simply fantastic!!

    Somehow Bill Willingham is able to take characters that almost everyone knows by heart and turn them into amazingly detailed and ultra-interesting new characters while keeping the same charm as before. In this collection we have the first assault on Fabletown by the much talked about Adversary. Added to that is the mayoral race, Snow's pregnancy, and a fantastic flashback involving Blue and you have a pitch perfect book. The art, predominantly done by Mark Buckingham is phenomenal and so suited to this series that it's hard to imagine anyone else handling the characters. Overall, this is a fantastic series and I crave the next volume.
