Product description

Collecting FABLES #6-10, the second story arc of the fan-favorite, critically acclaimed VERTIGO series. Travel to upstate New York, where the non-human Fable characters have found refuge on a farm, miles from mankind. But all is not well on the farm - and a conspiracy to free them from the shackles of their perceived imprisonment may lead to a war that could wrest control of the Fables community away from Snow White. Starring Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Plus, a sketchbook section featuring art by Willingham, Buckingham and Jean.

All is not well at the Fable community of The Farm. Like the Orwellian namesake there is revolution in the air - and you won’t guess who is leading it.

This is another excellent volume just as good as the first. There is enough you are familiar with to feel comfortable yet things are skewed in a fresh and imaginative way. Willingham is the master of pacing and drama and this is a compelling read right up to the last page. There is life or death action here and some pretty dark and gruesome moments which contrast well with folktale characters.

The art is great and there are some terrific double page spreads. The textbook straight borders are still present but the colouring between them changes appropriately and gilded frame flashback makes another appearance.

There is a bit of a false ending with almost an epilogue feel to it. Each issue has a ‘story so far’ prose recap at the beginning which is a little redundant too. But overall an exciting read worthy of a high Thumbs Up!
