Reading Challenges: Fables Series

In this volume collecting issues #6-11, Jack reveals the secret of his former relationship with the illustrious Snow Queen — when he took her powers and became known as Jack Frost. And in present times, he lands in Las Vegas and meets his lovely new bride, a directionless heiress. Could it possibly be “happily ever after” at last?

Two great continuing adventures of Jack.  He is really growing on me as a character.  Not quite as good as the main Fables series, but definitely a great little read.  I enjoyed the story about the Snow Queen.  Shows us what she was like before becoming the partner of the Adversary.  And the little (hee hee) twist as to what caused her illness: Very nice!  Wonder if that will come back up again.  Entertaining back story.  The Vegas story was interesting, but mostly for the interludes featuring the Page sisters and Mr. Revise.  I am really liking the whole deleting fables side plot.  Very interesting stuff.  Can’t wait to see what happens to Jack next!

    I really like the Jack of Fables story. Even better is the Brian Bolland cover art! He’s a legend and his work on this series solidifies his status.
