This volume contains two arcs. One explains what Jack did after the battle of Fabletown. It's a fluffy and silly satire of Hollywood, used somewhat in the same way as Brian K Vaughan used the ending arc of Y The Last Man Vol:3 except instead of commenting on the critics, it's commenting on potential exploiters.

This is followed up with a more serious story about Boy Blue's quest to return to the Homelands to save Red Riding Hood. I won't get into deep detail except to say a red herring is a little too obvious but otherwise the story is reasonably entertaining with a somewhat surprising reveal.

If anything, Bill Willingham's pacing continues to throw me for a loop. Long sections without progress in the overarching plot are then met with brief passages of hyperaccelerated info-dumps. Still, perhaps it is not as revealing as my first reaction believes and there remains room for the story to grow.
