    I'm kinda glad that just as Snow has become a little too dull and non-existant in this series, Cinderella has become even more kickass. Also - yay, Bigby isn't gone for good!

    The first story is fantastic. You can see the overall arc and direction of this story and the author strays from the type of story you would expect, telling the tale of two wooden people on the side of the enemy falling in love and wanting to be together like humans. We also see a wedding between a couple of significant characters that helps this book be mostly positive.

    This collection wasn't too bad. Shorter than previous installments, I mostly cared about getting back to Bigby's story. Cinderella's adventures was pretty entertaining too! I'll have to start looking into the spin-off series. This collection wasn't too bad. Shorter than previous installments, I mostly cared about getting back to Bigby's story.

    I have to admit, I was all ready to give up on this series, as the last few books I'd read weren't all that great, with one, Fables: Werewolves of the Heartland being downright awful!

The Fables prepare for battle, but first they must find their would-be commander: Bigby Wolf! I liked it, it brings together quite a few plot holes that had appeared over the series quite nicely. I liked the political aspect of it with Fabletown comparing itself to Israel in respect to the "Nemesis". I have to admit, I even liked the wedding of Snow and Bigby... then again, I'll like any wedding where I don't have to bring a gift :-). The last story (#51) wasn't that great of a story and simply seemed thrown together and is pretty much of a repetition of one of the other stories in the book. The first story does introduce a couple of new characters which I got the impression might have a "larger" and perhaps interesting role in future stories. OK, so that means I will be giving this series another chance and getting Book 7 of the Deluxe edition when it comes out. One of the things I did notice when comparing some of the pages printed in their original pencils, sans ink, sans colors, is that the illustration look much better before they get the ink and color treatment. This series might actually look better in Black and White than it does in color. Or maybe it just needs a better colorist. Also, reproducing the entire script from issue 50 may be interesting to some readers, but personnaly, I just thought it took up pages which could have been better used to present more of the artwork. From the back cover: "FABLES could surpass Neil Gaiman's SANDMAN as the best Vertigo series ever produced." — IGN errrr, no, I don't think so

    I just read some of the other reviews for this book from this series I feel so lukewarm about, and I realized that a big part of the issue is - I don't care about these characters. I don't particularly like any of them. maybe old king cole and the unnamed witch who helps them defeat the djinn in the previous volume. the characters don't bring much with them from their original stories. red riding hood brings innocence, snow white efficiency, prince charming is a player. that's about it.

I have used red riding hood in a poem, and I generally am drawn to her, in illustrations, for example, but here, she leaves me cold. they're all broken off from their old connotations and the new personalities aren't that exciting. lookswise, they look better in disney, for crying out loud, and I hate disney. I mean, honestly, there were more appealing characters and better art in sandman. bill willingham's storytelling is not nearly as pretentious as neil gaiman's, and that's probably why this doesn't piss me off the way sandman pissed me off. it doesn't really move me, though, either. I feel like I'm just reading it for comic book cultural literacy purposes, as it is a lengthy non-superhero series.

    Smaller than most of the deluxe editions so far, I found this one to be a little bit disappointing, but it's probably because it's a transition book into the next phase of the series. First, there's a mysterious story about Rodney, a wooden soldier in the Adversary's army. He falls in love with June and they journey to ask if they can be made human. The ending leaves their story unfinished and I'm sure they'll play a role in events to follow.

The ending leaves their story unfinished and I'm sure they'll play a role in events to follow. The second main story is about finding Bigby wolf and returning him to New York. This is a pleasant story and has a nice ending. It also shows Bigby using an allience with the giants that live in the clouds to enter the Adversary's home and threaten him. At this point it's uncertain if the fables will need to go to war or not. The final story was Cinderella's negotiations with the giants that formed the alliance in the first place so that Bigby could take advantage of it. I'm eagerly waiting for the next edition so that I can continue the story!

    The Ballad of Rodney & Junes (46-47). This story gives some nice insights into the Wooden Soldiers and has a great ending. However it's overall too slow (and probably should have been just one issue long), and it's also held back by weak, pale artwork [6/10]. Wolves (48-49). A nice return to the Snow & Bigby plot. Though the hunt for Bigby is the theoretical center of the plot, it's really the evolution of the cubs that's the heart of the story [7/10]. Happily Ever After (50).

First off we have Bigby's invasion of the Homelands, which offers a really nice response to the Invasion of the Wooden Soldiers. Next we have the Wedding, which is a terrific and emotional capstone to one of the long-running plots of the book. Overall, this is a terrific anniversary issue [9/10]. Big and Small (51). We end with a really minor issue that nonetheless advances the big plot about the Adversary. [7/10] Overall, this isn't a particularly strong volume other than issue #50, but that makes up for a lot.

    Brilliant continuation of a truly wonderful series. This gorgeous hardcover edition contains a decent amount of added material in the back. The script for the main story, artwork, alternative covers.. it's beautiful and I love it. In addition to continuing the main thrust of the Fables series plot this volume contains two additional tales. One is from the perspective of a Wooden Soldier, which adds an interesting depth to the enemy that hasn't been previously seen.

Every page just pushes the reader onward deeper into the rich and vibrant worlds that Bill Willingham has created. Who could ask for more?

    I understand the frustration a lot of people are having in regards to this deluxe edition which, at only 7 issues (and a bunch of extras), is not really all that "deluxe" at all. The cool thing, for me at least, is that the trade ends right around the same time that I originally stopped reading however many years ago. It's a good point for me to have gotten reacquainted.

So yeah, the "deluxe" part is disappointing, but I always loved the "Mogqai searches for Bigby" storyline, and the way it ends up is nothing short of a nice conclusion in a series that's often lacking in pleasant conclusions. With 7 issues and basically 2 arcs, there's not a ton to say except that the quality continues to be high, and I'm looking forward to reading new things as opposed to the rereading I've basically been doing all this time.

    In this volume: The battle with the Adversary heats up (literally). Bigby is tracked by Mowgli and begged to return to Snow and the kids. The kids are growing fast and trying to control their shape-shifting abilities, otherwise they'll never be allowed to leave the farm. Finally, a compromise is reached wherein Bigby may be able to live with his family after all. This volume does feel really short compared to previous deluxe editions, but it's a fantastic installment just the same. In this volume: The battle with the Adversary heats up (literally).

    Lots of Snow and Bigby in this one, so I really enjoyed this volume. I really love what Willingham has done with Bigby's mythology in this series. His being the son of the North Wind, as well as the runt on the litter (later becoming a GIANT wolf compared to his older brothers), really adds to the character and makes his storylines fascinating.

    The sixth hardback collection of Fables collects three story arcs (maybe four, but the middle two are linked). The first takes us into the occupied Homelands, and tells the story of two of Geppetto's wooden people who fall in love and petition him to make them flesh, and the price that is extracted from them. This is interesting as it's the first time we've had a story from the point of view of the occupying forces of the Homelands.

This is interesting as it's the first time we've had a story from the point of view of the occupying forces of the Homelands. It's nominally tangential to everything else that's going on, but the end suggests that plans are being laid. The second story sees Mowgli's search for Bigby through Asia and North America, and his eventual return to Fabletown, where Prince Charming makes him an offer he can't refuse. The third story starts out with Bigby's mission (and the trip to the cloud kingdoms is really fun) and ends with him and Snow White finally getting their Happily Ever After. The final story is a really fun adventure with Cinderella as she tries to sign a treaty with the cloud kingdoms to get their cooperation against the Adversary. It shows her in full badass mode, chewing gum and prodding buttock. I don't think we've got to see much of Cinderella thus far, and showing her spy skills and getting to do cool action stuff is really good fun. I enjoyed this volume a lot. With the Bigby/Snow White plot winding down, it feels like a good place to pause the series. Regular artist Mark Buckingham shares duties with guest artists for the first and last arcs. All the artists are excellent at their work and make reading the book a pleasure. Now, I just need a bit more of Flycatcher and Red Riding Hood...

    Fables continues ever onward, this oversized hardcover collects Fables 46-51. To start, we get a two issue story revolving around a pair wooden beings of the Adversary. It's a pretty nicely told romance story considering its length, and I feel it'll play into future arcs. Jim Fern's artwork was gorgeous, and fit the love story feel perfectly. The next few issues focus on Mowgli's search for Bigsby, a secret mission Prince Charming sends him on, and Bigsby's return and the effect it has on Snow a Fables continues ever onward, this oversized hardcover collects Fables 46-51.

I can't say much without spoiling anything, but suffice to say this arc brings Bigsby back into the fold and features a surprise wedding between two big characters. It's a nice palate cleanser and focuses nicely on the characters after we've been dealing with the Adversary so much in recent arcs. The artwork remains reliable and good, while Willingham's writing is excellent as always. The final issue in this collection is another spy story for Cinderella, and it's pretty fun for a one-off. She has to go to the Cloud Kingdom to get a treaty signed, but things of course go awry and she has to deal with that. Overall if you've been enjoying Fables so far, it remains as strong as ever and is worth reading.

    Another dead solid volume. Opening two chapter story is a wonderful tale of two wooden people falling in love. The next two-parter catches us up with Mowgli's search for Bigby which leads into the double-sized issue 50 extravaganza. The best though, might be the single chapter tale of issue 51, in which Cinderella has to pursue some statecraft to build an alliance.

Issue 50 is the only one that doesn't really work, it has a rushed front half that is at odds with it's splendid later half. Trying to cover such a big story would have been better served over more pages. Only other complaint is this volume has a bunch of process material at the back when I would have preferred more story, but seeing how the next book starts, I can understand why they cut this one a little slim.

    The wooden soldier story was fine and a nice change of pace, but it didn't add much to the overall universe. Bigby returning to Snow White made for a good anniversary issue and the Cinderella story was pretty fun.

    Interesting short stories, but I think I like the longer story arcs better. Good 50th milestone issue, tho, (view spoiler)[with Bigby returning to the pack (hide spoiler)] . I still find myself not caring that much about the deluxe features like maps and scripts in hardcover graphic novel collections.
