Product Description

WINNER OF FOURTEEN EISNER AWARDS

Having beaten back the Adversary's first advance into their world, the residents of Fabletown must now prepare themselves for the full-scale war that is sure to follow. For one particular Fable, this means skipping town to launch a new career as a venal Hollywood mogul—a path he hopes will be paves with gold and immortality. For another Fable, though, it means a journey down a much more dangerous road—one that winds through the Fables’ old Homelands into the very heart of enemy territory, where the mystery of the Adversary’s identity will finally be revealed.

Collects issues #34-41 in Bill Willingham’s Eisner Award-winning Vertigo series.

5.0 out of 5 stars the Adversary is revealed... 6 April 2006
Format:Paperback
...and when he is, it all becomes clear.
Boy Blue didn't evoke images of 'kickass-action-hero' in me, but give him some equipment, including the Vorpal sword, and here's some serious trouble heading for the finally-to-be-revealed Adversary. And Jack in Hollywood was a nice vignette as well. I'd like to hear more about the diminutive Jill though!
Great stuff, getting better all the time, as if that were possible. The in-jokes keep flowing, as do the twists and wry tweaks on old-established fairy-tales. And the revelation of the Adverary's spy in Fabletown...woohoo! I always thought the fairy-tale in which this character appeared needed some serious revision-and here it comes...
There's also a hint that maybe Bigby and Snow will re-enter the story. About time! I miss Bigby and Snow! I really want to know what happened to him and his rogue Zephyr kid during the five years that have now elapsed. Did he really avoid all contact with Snow? How are those flying babies developing?
Of course, the Boy Blue-Red Riding Hood affair also has to be resolved. And there's Baba Yaga festering in the dungeon and...
A cunning story-teller Bill Willingham is, and I admire him more each day. Here's material for at least three more years, and probably more. I shall continue to refuse to buy the comics individually and so will have to pine for the next compilation with baited breath, meanwhile probably rereading the whole 6 volumes at least once...
Seriously, you couldn't ask for anything better. I wish someone let me do some serious screenplay adapting of this stuff. I'm sure it's been optioned. I wish it were to me!

5.0 out of 5 stars The story grows here 15 July 2014
By Cetrie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Finally getting to see more of the homelands than ever before. The lack of Bigby and Snow from this book is not as bad as you think. The stories still have a lot of substance and the book itself is hard to put down once you get started.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Double Thumbs Up! 18 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback
This is a big volume with a lot of bang for your buck crammed in. We get to follow Boy Blue in the Homelands and learn about The Adversary. We see what has been happening in Fabletown as one of the tourists returns. We also discover what scrapes Jack has been getting into whilst he has been away.

Just as the art has been getting a polish of late so too does the narrative. Jack's tale is recounted by different characters he meets on his travels in a manner similar to Wimbledon Green or Usagi Yojimbo: Volume 16.

Not to be outdone the first few parts of the Boy Blue story have art without any frames, borders or panels on the page at all. The characters and speech appear multiple times and it is up to you - with some help from the colourist - to put everything in order.

A great volume with some bold and imaginative techniques and some riveting story points. Another Double Thumbs Up!
