since they were driven from their homelands by the Adversary,
the non-human Fables have been living on the Farm - a vast
property in upstate New York that keeps them hidden from the
prying eyes of the mundane world. But now, after hundreds
of years of isolation, the Farm is seething with revolution
fanned by the inflammatory rhetoric of Goldilocks and the
three bears as well as the three little pigs. And when Snow
White and her sister Rose Red stumble upon their plan to liberate
the homelands, the commissars of the Farm are ready to silence
them - by any means necessary...
the latest in the Fables collection of graphic novels
from Titan Publishing. And what a ride they've got waiting
for fans of the series. Sisters Snow White and Rose Red go
home for the yearly visit only to find there are plans of
a rebellion - the inhabitants of Fabletown want to take over
your favourite nursery rhyme and fairytale characters are
present and correct including Goldilocks and the three bears
(be prepared to discover something very unnatural about their
relationship) the old woman who lived in a shoe, Big Bad Wolf
and the three little pigs, Snow White and Little Boy Blue.
artwork in this collection is wonderfully illustrated and
the storyline is well crafted. This is the stuff of children's
nightmares. Imagine an evil talking pig, or a stupid, yet
deadly family of talking bears who dress like country folk
and you'll soon realise how freaky this collection is.
Bill Willingham cleverly covers his tracks throughout this
collection. Every time the story raises a question (like how
come no human has ever visited the Farm, or how on earth rabbit's
or chickens are supposed to use guns) he gives a satisfactory
explanation several pages later.
of the most original and nightmarish collections I have read
for some time.
