I love the Fables series and I was looking forward to this book, so I ordered it despite the warnings posted by reviewers on the US Amazon site that this was the slimmest book in the deluxe series yet. They were right to complain. The previous volume had 288 pages of comic and 6 pages of sketches as an appendix. At the same price, the current volume has 170 pages of comic, 14 pages of other illustrated material and 29 pages with the complete script to issue no. 50. Frankly, in my opinion, the latter will be unlikely to interest most readers. Amazon has clearly reacted to this by reducing the price of the book, but the disappointment remains. I do hope that the publishers will give us more substance in the next volume, but the number of pages given on the pre-order site (240) does not inspire confidence.
