"Yes, he was our friend. And he was good and heroic and all of those things you mentioned. So, why would we want to drag him back into this world of woes and heartbreak? "
So true, that is oh so true...
Aftermaths aren't always easy, and I'm glad that Fables decided not to forget about that bit of history that usually gets left out of the books, buts still, I was a somewhat disappointed, not only by the alternate pencillers (oh how I hate those!), but also because things seemed to just run by so fast. Also, the introduction of the big dark one should have taken place at a latter time, in my opinion. This should have been the volume to mourn, the volume to rest, the volume to put things in perspective - even the things we don't want to admit, like the fact that defeating a big bad only causes a power vacuum and the rise of someone else, maybe even someone worse. Alas, it is what it is, and I'll just have to wait and see what else will Willingham think of next.
