posizionata dopo Barleycorn Brides e approfondisce anch'essa la guerra contro l'invasore delle terre delle fiabe. It is set in the modern day and follows several of Fabletown's legal representatives, such as sheriff Bigby Wolf, deputy mayor Snow White, her sister Rose Red, Prince Charming, and Boy Blue, as they deal with troublesome Fables and try to solve conflicts in both Fabletown and "the Farm", a hidden town in upstate New York for Fables unable to blend in with human society.

The Fables: The Wolf Among Us video game was adapted into comic form by Vertigo Comics, released digitally first in December 2014 and later as print comic.

La storia è raccontata in modo interessante, ma non consistente: parte come una collezione di testimonianze di un processo, ma poi passa ad una narrazione lineare.Also liked the different perspective of King Cole that we got to see, seeing him be selfless and care about the Fables he was trapped with put into context why he was Mayor of Fabletown for so long.

Geppetto is up to his naughty tricks in a stand-alone story that fills in the gaps of an event that happened in Fabletown long ago. I'm rounding up to a full 5 stars for the hell of it and because it's one of those books where I would always be thinking about what would happen next, even when I set it down. i could imagine readers getting confused by the time skips or disturbed by the underlying violences and character deaths. After proving himself in the '90s as a talent to watch while writing for DC Comics on The Authority, The Flash, and the UK comic 2000 AD he made his arrival at Marvel where he wrote Old Man Logan, the inspiration for the Logan movie and Civil War, Marvel's bestselling graphic novel of all time and the inspiration for Captain America: Civil War. Snow and Bigby's cub Therese is taken to a bleak, mysterious land inhabited by discarded toys, inciting a series of soul-crushing events.

Meanwhile, Bufkin finds himself trapped in the lost business office with Baba Yaga and many other monsters. el arte de Mark Buckingham es simplemente espectacular y dan ganas de arrojarle premios Eisner ala cabeza a manos llenas, y las portadas de James Jean son para abrirle un museo de tiempo completo.

Meanwhile, trouble of a different sort brews at the Fables’ upstate farm, where non-human inhabitants are preaching revolution…and threatening the carefully nutured secrecy of Fabletown. Once upon a time, the subjects of fairy tales - princesses, witches, talking animals, and more - lived far away in a fabled magical realm. There were many twists and turns just in the span of these couple dozen pages and honestly each of these twists took me by surprise! Questa è la prova di come un concetto come Fables si presti a un'infinita varietà di storie e racconti, e per adesso mi sembra che Willingham, il suo unico autore, abbia davvero fatto tesoro della cosa! Qui scopriamo che lavora per Bigby, e che ci sono dei Fables che cospirano per far trionfare l'Adversary anche nel nostro mondo, come Ichabod Crane (da Sleepy Hollow!was developing a live-action Fables film with David Heyman and Jeffrey Clifford producing, Jeremy Slater and Jane Goldman writing and Nikolaj Arcel directing, but these plans were quietly cancelled. The artwork is about as good as it gets for a comic that is not affiliated with the Big 2 (Marvel and DC). The stuff I didn’t like: the side story with Jack going to Hollywood (though I understand it provides context on how a Fable can gain power… which I hope this story pays off later, otherwise it felt just like filler), the back story with Jack in a war, pretty much anything dealing with Jack lol, hard shifts on to artists who are notably not the same as the primary series artist (which can be ok, when the right artist are utilized… but a couple of these felt too jarring), and the length of time spend on side stories. He begins by providing conventional pages, although often with baroque touches, but by the end of this collection he’s begun using the ornate vertical page edgings that would come to characterise the series. I just don’t have a taste for reading about wars that really happened (unless it is in a memoir or historical fiction context.

However, the charm, the tight plots, the surprises and the great art patch them over until Fables kicks into gear. Unfortunately for Snow White, besides suffering the trauma of having two of her cubs go missing, a long forgotten secret uncovered in Castle Dark threatens to sabatoge her and Bigsby's marriage. L'ultimo castello è una storia inclusa nel Compendium ma non uscì nei numeri regolari del comic Fables.I loved the stories from when i was a kid, and really grew up with the Grimm stories and Anderson, and many more.
