Read in January, 2012

This is my favorite Fables volume so far. It's still not perfect: inconsistent storytelling; cheap shots at conservative ideologies; dialogue that fifteen year old fanboys would be proud of - these are all still there. But the important thing is that, whereas those qualities dominated the other volumes, they were few and far between here. The opening comic, "The Last Castle" (Boy Blue's story) was fabulous - like 'make you cry' fabulous. And I thought that the author moved the individual storylines along well while describing the exciting battle between the Fables and the wooden soldiers of the Adversary. I said that this was the last chance I was giving this series - looks like I'll be reading volume 5.
