This is it folks! the conclusion of a tale involving 50 issues of the original graphic novel.... at last a happy ending and the resolution of the relationship between Snow and Bigby.

Also how Fabletown delivered a short sharp shock to the Adversary...

This one holds together beautifully. After the duplicity and tragedy in the earlier books, we have a wonderfully heartwarming finish whilst leaving a few hooks concerning other Fables that will hold the interest for subsequent books.

I'm glad I bought this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Whatever happened to Bigy Wolf? 21 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback
Well, herein we finally find out.

We've been hanging in there, pining away for more stories about the fates of the central characters in this ensemble cast, whom we met at the very beginning of the first story in the series. Ever since _The Mean Seasons_, when Bigby went away because the only person whose smell he likes (Remember he's a wolf: The Wolf!) couldn't decide to throw her lot in with him. Understandably, I suppose, because she was a practical girl and, let's face it, their history together had its ups and downs. She also had so cubs to take care of, and there were political issues with having Bigby around.

So we waited and waited (well, _I_ did!) and followed Boy Blue into the Homelands to reveal the Adversary, and the fates of an assortment of others dealing with folks from other cultures--all the while chuckling at Willingham's built-in jokes, very often of the political kind, and usually with a strong libertarian slant.

In _Wolves_ too, there a lot of implied politics and social commentary, but it all fades into insignificance before the central issues: where's Bigby, what's he been doing, and how is this thing with Snow going to play out? _Is_ it going to play out? Whatever happened to the aberrant 'Zephyr' cub of Bigby and Snow's; the one that kills living creatures because it likes their breath?

As a bonus there's also another story, involving that sexy spy, Cinderella; who is like a female James Bond, and so much nicer than that psycho Goldilocks (whom we're sure to meet again one day, even though she had an axe buried in her head last time we saw her plunge into a river).

4.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs Up and a big Ahhhhhhhh! 18 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback
A good solid volume with plenty of heart and happy ever after. This includes the 50th issue of Fables and is very special in story terms. The main tale is split into nine short chapters which is an interesting choice but doesn't seem to have much of an impact.

The art is great with some lovely colours and low light scenes, plus a terrific double page spread at the key moment. The covers are excellent too.

There are a few maps of Fabletown locations and the complete script to issue #50 too.

Thumbs Up and a big Ahhhhhhhh!
