Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This clever, enjoyable series written by Willingham, has a rather ingenious premise: what if all the characters of fairy tales lived, loved, schemed, and fought in a modern-day city of their own? This installment contains two fun story arcs. One, a cute satire of contemporary Hollywood, stars Jack, of beanstalk fame, portrayed as a rather unsavory trickster. Making his way to Hollywood with a fistful of cash, he becomes a wildly successful producer of films based on his own mythological exploits. Eventually, though, his ruthless business practices and unsavory past catch up with him. In a longer story, Little Boy Blue goes on an epic quest to find and kill a shadowy tyrant who turns out to be none other than kindly old Geppetto, now a bilious tyrant still longing for his Pinocchio. The more one reads of the series, the more the narrative strands bear thematic fruit. Willingham clearly has an immense amount of fun playing with these characters and their histories, and the art, mostly by Buckingham, is a perfect match: clear, fanciful and finely drawn. Fables is an excellent series in the tradition of Sandman, one that rewards careful attention and loyalty. (Jan.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Bill Willingham has such a complete grasp of this world that he has molded into his own. Here we get our first real look into The Homelands and the Adversary is finally revealed. First off, the revelation is amazingly perfect. It is chilling and logical. The fact that there is another whole world still in operation with these characters is quite a site. Blue’s journey to rescue his lost love is thrilling and we can see how formidable he can be. The results of his quest will be felt for a long time. While I miss seeing Bigby I like Beast’s attempts to grow into the role. The art was typical Fables fair, which is to say, not jaw-dropping but well suited. Overall, another great read.

Can't say anything else about the series. It has its moments but its at the same time, the kind of read you just want to know what happens next. And what other characters you'll meet. Good volume.
