About this deal

These bits were very uneven, ranging from well written, drawn, and paced to art I could barely stand to look at, stories that were kind of mediocre, and sometimes too slow. E sono felice come non mai di questa mega-edizione che è una gioia per il fan che vuole tutto ma proprio tutto da "Fables" senza compromessi!

While the concept is enticing, it needed the application of Willingham’s creativity and page-turning plots, and the phenomenal appeal of Mark Buckingham’s decorative art. Forse un po' troppo sbrigativa la soluzione finale, ma è un'altra storia che centra l'obiettivo di espandere il mondo di Fables, e lo fa non ricorrendo al protagonista Wolf.Fables: Werewolves of the Heartland is an original graphic novel written by Willingham with art by Craig Hamilton, and Jim Fern. Riguardo a temi chiave di questo story arc, mi sembra inevitabile che Willingham parli di guerra in un periodo in cui gli Stati Uniti stavano mandando il proprio esercito a combattere in varie parti del mondo (questi numeri del fumetto originariamente uscirono nel 2004, poco dopo le invasioni di Afghanistan e Iraq, e pure le elezioni a Fabletown sembrano essere allineate con quelle del 2004 che videro fronteggiarsi Bush e Kerry).

This is a world of fantasy that should be in the same pantheon of great literature such as Lord of the Rings and Sandman. The authors have breathed fresh air and new life into dozens of fables from different countries and moved many of them to New York, after an arduous exile from their homelands. The series features various characters from fairy tales and folklore – referring to themselves as "Fables" – who formed a clandestine community centuries ago within New York City known as Fabletown, after their Homelands were conquered by a mysterious and deadly enemy known as "The Adversary". Mister Dark relates how he came to be trapped in a magical box by a group of imperial warlocks, and the rise of their leader Dunster Happ. I’ll try not to get too deep into a review of the stories themselves and focus on the actual product.The comic provides a mature and dark take on classic fairy tale characters through a variety of art and plot styles centered around the "Fabletown" community of New York City. I had a massive backlog of floppies that I was way behind in, and I completely lost track of the storyline in the long intervals between reading issues. La serie es perfecta, pagina a pagina se construye y sube en emoción, definición de personajes, fantasía al máximo, con personajes que no aprendes a querer sino a AMAR, desde ese lobo Feroz que hace y deshace, tiene planes sobre planes, y otros planes escondidos en otros planes , con un cast coral que amas a manos llenas, incluso, en un numero, se habla desde la perspectiva de los gnomos y es un numero genial ! We give people around the world the opportunity to contribute to the circular economy, earn money and protect the planet, by trading their unwanted books and media.

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. Raccoglie i primi 41 numeri del fumetto Fables, scritto da Bill Willingham, il cui primo numero uscì nel 2002. Allo stesso tempo, Prince Charming vuole sostituire King Cole a capo della comunità (e mettere la Bella e la Bestia al posto di Snow White e Bigby), anche se il grosso della storia sta nella battaglia a difesa di Fabletown che vede vincitori i nostri eroi pur se a caro prezzo (muoiono Weyland, l'orso Boo, tanti membri della Mounted Police. I appreciated seeing a different side of Fabletown in this volume, and even though the farm was like a “prison” for them, the artwork made the place seem so very charming.

It may not have ended on a massive cliffhanger, though I'm genuinely interested to see where it goes from here. Peter and Max: A Fables Novel is an illustrated novel centering on Peter Piper, his wife Bo Peep and his brother Max, who will later grow up to be the Pied Piper. I really want to read the rest of the comics but when things like that are thrown in and that character later gets a spin-off series about him it just feels bad.
