This second volume of the Fables series moves the focus to the non-human fairy tale creatures who live in upstate New York on their own private farm. This book is even better than the first volume, the storyline flows far more smoothly and the plot is more gripping in my opinion. Their is some wonderful intertextuality within the book with obvious references to Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies. The artwork is fantastic and really brings the scenes to life, that said flicking panel by panel on the iPad mini through the Kindle app is not ideal, and I tend to read these on a full size iPad, the DC and Marvel comic portals are better generally. However that is by the by and does not distract from the obvious quality of this fantastic series. Although I'd rather have hard copies the £3 saving by getting Kindle version means I can by more of them. Awesome stuff

Format: Paperback
Snow White, the Deputy Mayor of Fabletown, and her wayward sister Rose Red venture out of the city and into the country to visit the Farm. This is where all of the Fable creatures who don’t look humanoid – the various talking animals, three giants and a dragon – are kept and whose presence is masked through enchantments. However this means they’re unable to leave the land without being seen by the mundys (slang for humans – as in “mundane”, ie. “normal”). This limiting of their freedom for hundreds of years has led to widespread discontent among as the Farm Fables as Snow and Rose are about to find out – the animals are revolting!

Like the first volume which was a murder mystery, the second volume of Fables is a self-contained five-issue story arc, though less generic and unfortunately less interesting. It’s a bit like a horror mystery as Snow and Rose find out the idyllic land harbours poisonous intentions that boils over into murderous actions kind of like in The Wicker Man (NOT the Nic Cage version which was a comedy. “HOW’D IT GET BURRRRNNNNEDD?!?!??!”).

Bill Willingham references well-known literary works like Lord of the Flies and of course Orwell’s Animal Farm though they only bear a superficial resemblance to this book as Willingham’s story doesn’t explore the same themes or in quite the same level of depth and thoughtfulness. Fables remains a straightforward series.

It’s enjoyable to see well known characters playing against type like the militant Goldilocks as she leads a communist-esque revolution as the female Che Guevara and Snow fighting Shere Khan from Kipling’s Jungle Book is exceedingly good (hehe!).

Format: Paperback
Picking up directly where "Legends in Exile" finished, Snow White and Rose Red go to visit the Farm. Here are all the Fables not in human form. They are pretty much forced to live here so that the "mundys" do not discover them as it's obviosuly harder for them to blend in with society. This goes double for creatures like dragons and giants.

Led by Goldilocks (she choose to stay with the three bears on the Farm), the animals are about to begin a revolution and take over Fable Town in New York. Whose side will Rose Red take and will Snow White and Reynard the Fox be able to stop them. Will the cavalry ever arrive in time...

Lots more familiar faces turn up like The Three Little Pigs, Shere Khan, Brere Rabbit and Chicken Little. It's a lot more violent and disturbing than the first in the series with some great references to Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies. I enjoyed it, but not quite as much as the first in the series. I will definately be reading the next one though.

Fables is a graphic novel series in which a host of fairy-tale characters and mythological creatures have been forced to flee their home lands because of the mysterious Adversary. They have settled in New York, where they live parallel lives to our own, hiding their powers and gifts. In the first volume, we met Snow White and followed her journey to find out what had happened to her sister, Rose Red. In this second volume, Snow and Rose have journeyed to the Farm, home to all of the creatures that can not be hidden in every-day life (think giants and talking animals). Snow is there on routine business but it soon becomes apparent that not everything is as it should be on the Farm and a violent revolution is brewing, led by the pigs.

I liked Volume One of the Fables series, it didn't set my world alight but I liked it enough to pick up this second volume whilst I was in the library. I'm a big fan of Orwell's Animal Farm, so I was interested to see how Willingham would pay homage to the novel in his story. Of course, there's no Russian Revolution in the Fables version, but there are striking parallel's to Orwell's original, including the leadership/ double dealing of the pigs. I actually felt a bit sorry for the creatures forced to live on the Farm; their every wish was catered for by the human fairytale characters but they could never leave, even though their lives are practically immortal.

On the whole, I felt that Animal Farm was stronger than the previous installment, Legends in Exile. There wasn't as much need for world-building, leaving more room for plot and adventure. I like how we're starting to see some moral ambiguity in the series, and how there are splits in the Fabletown community. I'm looking forward to picking up the next volume soon.
