Fables: Animal Farm by Bill Willingham (Repost)

19 Aug

I am reposting my original review for Legends in Exile to count for my Fables Series Reading Challenge.  I reread the volume, but didn’t have anything to add to my review.

Title: Fables Vol. 2: Animal Farm

Author: Bill Willingham

Publisher: DC Comics 2003

Genre: Graphic Novel; Fantasy

Pages: 112

Rating: 3 / 5 stars

Reading Challenges: Support Your Local Library; April Read-a-Thon; Fantasy; Fables Series Challenge

How I Got It: borrowed from library

Definitely not as good as Legends in Exile, but still a good graphic novel.  This story revolved around Fabletown’s non-human inhabitants.  They attempt a takeover of control of Fabletown and hopefully the Homelands.  Of course, not everything goes as planned.  And Snow White and Rose Red are caught in the middle.  The twists and turns and intrigue weren’t a surprise.  I felt like I had read this story before.  The plot was overdone and old.  The characters were fairly interesting.  However, Snow White was such a disappointment after her excellent debut.  Read this volume in about an hour.  It wasn’t a wasted hour, but definitely not the best.  Here’s hoping that Volume 3 is better.
