Aside from a drunk kinkajou that has almost nothing to do with the primary story, this volume is astonishingly sad. With a title like "The Dark Ages", I was certainly not expecting unicorns and rainbows. We say goodbye to Prince Charming, an scoundrel-turned-hero. Pinocchio's desperately tryin...

Unusual in that the crux of the entire storyline is here resolved already, one has to wonder, what will happen next if the series' raison d'etre has been suddenly poopy-pooped, the main villain defeated, and everyone looking peachy? Well, you can have a weird guy pop out of a treasure box and tur...

The 11th volume of Fables focuses primarily on the much antcipated war between Fabletown and the Adversary. Following the whole Flycatcher Haven epic, the war part seems a bit short. However, I dislike battle scenes, so I'm not complaining. I loved the flying battleship! (There are diagrams o...

This volume covers two main storylines - Bufkin's adventures in Oz, and a conflict between Snow White and Prince Brandish. I enjoyed the Bufkin stories quite a bit - a series of quick, fun, whimsical adventures. The Snow White storyline was interesting enough, but had a few flaws, in my opinion. ...

After the disappointing volume of Fairest I read a few weeks back, I was feeling trepidation about diving into the Fable universe again, but Willingham pulled off a good recovery for this arc that is leading into the end of the series. I'm actually glad that it is coming to an end, since I've fel...

After the heartbreak of the last volume, Fables #20 does feel somewhat like a bridge book, but that's okay. The storyline moves forward in a few new and different directions, and this volume lays the groundwork for what I expect will be some huge developments still to come. This series has never ...

This is the first volume of Fables that I've read, so perhaps it's wrong of me to try to write a review, even a brief one: while I enjoyed its Sandmanesque stylings very much, I didn't necessarily get who all of the characters were, or care as much about a couple of "deaths in the family" as I wo...

I really wish I had been using Goodreads properly back in August when I was re-reading this, as I cannot for the life of me recall just how much I liked this volume so I cannot think which rating to give it. I feel like I remember being a bit.... bored... perhaps in places so I will stick with a ...

Cel mai intunecat volum din serie...Cu adevarat tenebros.Au fost panouri care chiar mi-au dat fiori si mi-au facut piele de gaina.Bine scris, bine temperat, Cubs in Toyland mi-a lasat impresia ca citesc un volum horror, nicidecum unul din seria Fables.Nu stiu de unde si-a tras seva aceasta venino...

Nota 4 este o nota de compromis: nu mi-a placut deloc ideea de a copia X-men-ul și incercarea de marvelizare a universului Fables, asa cum s-a intamplat cu sfarsitul seriei Jack of Fables, desi a fost o incercare destul de amuzant, nu a fost suficient de ironica si sarcastica ca sa fie convingato...

I will say straight away that I had no interest in the superhero storyline before I read this volume and it wasn't good enough to change my mind.Fortunately, that was not the central focus of the volume. Basically the story centers around the final confrontation with Mr. Dark. I must say, the way...

The adventure continues! First, the delightfully creepy Mr. Dark narrates the tale of how he was originally placed in his stone tomb. It is the tale of the seemingly-young Dunster Happ, a warlock in the service of the Empire who is asked to join a secret society known only as the Boxing League, a...

It's been a while since I've read this series and I wanted to take the time to catch up to current. I liked the battle with Mr. Dark and BellFlower but I felt it was lackluster at points. I'm looking forward to what Mr. Dark has planned for the future with his new partner in crime. Maybe it's the...
