Graphic Novel. The Empire Strikes Back, Or At Least Holds A Meeting To Discuss Doing So. I just don't know about you, Fables. You've been been getting more and more fragmented as time goes on. I no longer feel like I'm reading a cohesive story with a bigger purpose. In fact, I think my favorite stories in this volume were all less than four pages and had little to do with the main plot. "Hair" is short and bittersweet, and "A Thorn in Their Side?" has some interesting art by Michael Allred and a promising new character, but the rest of the trade is pretty boring. "Father and Son" is almost completely terrible. Here, Allred's art is ugly and poorly drawn, the color's dark and greasy-looking, and Bigby and Snow aren't their usual surly, spunky selves. They just haven't been the same since Snow had her cubs.

Two stars. I hate to say it, but I think Fables has jumped the shark.
