19 Sep

Title: Jack of Fables Vol 3: The Bad Prince

Author: Bill Willingham

Publisher: Vertigo 2008

Genre: Graphic Novel; Fantasy

Pages: 128

Rating:  4 / 5 stars

Reading Challenges: Fables Series; A to Z Titles: J

No sooner have Jack and Gary escaped Lady Luck (see Jack of Hearts) than the Librarians of Golden Boughs recapture them for return to Mr. Revise. Worse still, they’re reunited with Wicked John, the fellow Fable who resembles Jack. An argument ensues, and after a mini-van crash at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, the adventures really begin. Willingham and company are in top form (artist Andrew Robinson’s work on the final chapter is outstanding), so Jack and the crew are witty and snarky as ever, even in what is basically an interlude explaining histories and telling secrets. –Tina Coleman

Another win.  Honestly I don’t think any of the Fables series volumes are going to score lower than 4 stars.  I just love them and this one is no exception.  After the incident at Golden Boughs, I thought Wicked John would play a bigger role in a future volume.  I am glad to see the snarky Wicked John make a repeat appearance.  We get to see more of Jack’s history and his current mistakes.  I really love see how he screws up these situations.  Just love it.  And the Pathetic Fallacy (aka Gary)!  I knew there was more than meets the eye.  I just love that they’ve explained more about the entire Storytime world and how the Fables interact with it.  Big reveals in this volume!  And the next one looks just as good.
