In the Fables’ world, there isn’t a lot of happily-ever-after to go around. As refugees from the lands of make-believe, the Fables have been driven from their storybook realms and forced to blend in with our gritty, mundane reality.
But that doesn’t mean they don’t have any room for romance—or the pain, betrayal and jealous rage that go along with it. In fact, love may be blooming between two of the most hard-bitten, no-nonsense Fables around. But are they destined for happiness— or a quick and untimely death?

Wow. Every volume of this impresses me more than the last. Each storybook character’s history and life gets so much fuller and richer with each installment.
The art is wonderful and fits the story perfectly and the cover art is AMAZING.
In this volume, we see what the people of Fabletown will do to keep their true nature a secret from a reporter. Let me just say it was super imaginative and done in only a way that people of fairy tales would do things. We also get a visit from Goldilocks and her attempts murder. She really is crazy. How Bill Willingham came up with a homicidal maniac Goldilocks is beyond me but it’s great.
I really liked seeing Bigby Wolf and Snow White’s interactions too. And with that ending I’m really excited to see what will happen next.
