5.0 out of 5 stars Another Excellent Volume; Puts the Pieces in Place for the Finale 2 Sept. 2014
By Scott Knight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
With Fables Vol. 20: Camelot, Bill Willingham continues the excellence that is the Fables story. Characters and events continue to intertwine as decisions and actions from previous storylines echo throughout this volume.

The main story in Camelot involves Rose Red's acceptance of her role of Paladin of Hope and her idea to form a new Camelot and Knights of the Round Table, focusing on second chances. This seems to be a lot of set-up for the final Fables story, and Rose makes an interesting decision regarding Prince Brandish.

Running concurrent with Rose's quest, the witches and wizards of Fabletown attempt to reassemble the glass form that was once Bigby Wolf. They are hopeful that doing so will allow them to retrieve Bigby's soul and he will return to life. While this is happening, Snow White and her surviving cubs (kids) are circling the wagons, preparing for a conflict with Rose Red and her crew. Again, there is a lot of set-up here, but Snow and the kids have long been some of my favorite characters.

There are four additional tales in this collection. My favorite, and the best part of this book, centers on Bigby Wolf and Boy Blue. It is a touching look at the afterlife, and two warriors who gave their all for Fabletown. This is a moving story, and the art is very spare and complementary. Mark Buckingham's art is the perfect touch, once again. Gepetto and Junebug also get single issues stories, with hints towards future happenings. The fourth tale involves the Blue Boy Band and an adventure they go on in the Homelands. The crux of this tale is a question that (I've read) will drive the final story arc of Fables.

Fables continues to be a remarkable book and an excellent piece of storytelling. Camelot is no exception, and the pieces are all being moved into position for one final arc (the series is ending with issue 150). Don't miss out on this penultimate piece of a wonderful story. I highly recommend it.

I received a preview copy of this book from Netgalley and DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well done continuation of the Fables series 7 Sept. 2014
By Karissa Eckert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I got a copy of this book to review through Edelweiss. There is a lot going on in this series at this point. This graphic novel covered four main storylines as the fables settle into their new home. This trade paperback (TPB) collects issues #130 to #140. This series is supposed to end with issue #150, with will be included in TPB volume 21: Happily Ever After.

Issue 130 is about the Daughter of Rodney and June as she explores Castle Black. Issues 131 to 133 and 135 to 137 are about Rose Red claiming her place as a Paladin of Second Chances and starting her own round table. Issue 134 has a very touching scene between Bigby and Boy Blue. Issue 138 is a brief interlude on what Gepetto's been up to. Finally issues 139 - 140 are about the members of Boy Blue's Band.

Of the above my favorites were the storyline with Rose Red and her round table. Rose Red always has such good intentions, but manages to just mess everything up. As part of her new Paladin of 2nd Chances title she releases Prince Brandish to reform him. As you can imagine this does not go over well with Snow.

Snow is torn between dealing with Rose Red and trying to put Bigby back together again. She is desperately trying to find the one last piece of Bigby.

I also really enjoyed the issue with Boy Blue and Bigby, they walk through the afterlife and have a very heartfelt discussion. It was very well done and give excellent insight into both their characters.

I didn't really understand what the June Bug story arc featuring the little girl exploring Castle Black had much to do with anything. I also was a bit confused about what the two issues following the remnants of Boy Blue had to do with anything.

I still enjoyed this book. I really loved the Rose Red storyline. However, I was happy to hear that the next TPB will be the last. I do feel like the series has been losing some steam over the last couple TPB.

Overall a good addition to the Fables universe. I recommend the whole Fables series to those who enjoy urban fantasy graphic novels. I would recommend starting at the beginning of the series since there are so many characters and things going on later in the series. I am very curious to see how things wrap up in Happily Ever After.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than volume 19 6 Sept. 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is still a great series but the last volume, Babes In Toyland, left me a bit wanting. This volume is better, but still not as good as previous ones. I know Bill is planning more and his storytelling is deep, but I don't know if this series is showing its age, or I'm impatient to get going, but it just seems a bit slower and as a reader, I'm not as involved. I'll still keep reading, because I'm sure that some gigantic surprise is waiting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but sad and getting repetitive 26 Sept. 2014
By writergurl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I miss the issues I couldn't put down toward the beginning of this saga, but they're still good. I love Rose in her new position, I think it's interesting to make her the main character for a while, but I feel like we're getting on repetitive ground. Now Rose and Snow are not talking again? Gepetto is growing his enchanted forest again? If we're going to be brutally honest, the quality dropped after the Adversary was defeated and to maintain perfect quality, it probably should have ended there. But I love the story so much, and the issues have continued to be enjoyable, if sad, I keep buying them.

I've personally been holding on all this time for Boy Blue's return though, and there have always been enough hints, particularly in 19, to think there was reason to hope. But now, to know definitively he is not returning, there's not a huge reason for me to continue reading. It seems like the issues have been pretty sad straight on since number 12. I respect the realistic emotions, and that sadness is a part of life, but so is happiness. It's time to turn it around a bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read - to be continued 4 Sept. 2014
By Grejam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Another good book in the series, but no big conclusions. The stories will continue...

Main characters are Rose Red and Show White (and her cubs). Lots of the old favorites, time moves on as Fable Town moves into Mr Dark's castle.

Not much is wrapped up, and some interesting conflicts are shown. I'll avoid spoilers, even though there probably isn't much to spoil. Some of these future stories could be messy, I'll stay tuned...
