Number of Pages : 166
Series : #5 Fables
Format : Graphic Novel
Reason for Reading : Graphic Novel Challenge 2009, to continue with the series

Back in Fabletown life is moving on after the war of March of the Wooden Soldiers. The town is being rebuilt and the race to become Major is one between current Major King Cole and Prince Charming. Whilst this is going on Snow has gone into labour and gives birth to babies plural. Not only does she have more than one baby, it seems that they have other abilities as well that involve them being tied down...

We spend some time finding out a little more about Cinderella as well as Bibgy's past helping out the American army against the Nazis. The interrogation of Baba Yaga and the wodden heads continues as the Fables try to find out more about the Adversary and who they actually are. Boy Blue disappears having found a way back to the Homelands to seek out the readl Red Riding Hood and there are some mysterious deaths where people seem to suffocate for no apparent reason.

This was an excellent addition to the series and I loved meeting Bigby's father (all I want to know now is who his mother is!). I am really looking forward to the next in the series and finding out what has happened to the Homelands. The side stories are weaving together very nicely.

Bigby's father is cool, isn't he? I just love this series. I can't wait for the next volume to come out next month.

I am caught up in Fables, now. Soon will have to collect Jack of Fables...

Bigby's father is great. Unlike Kailana I am not caught up on the series at all. I have a large pile of individual issues waiting for a day when I finally quit being distracted and dive into them. That will be a good day because this series is wonderful.
