Fabletown’s ex-sheriff Bigby Wolf and ex-deputy mayor (and power behind King Cole’s former mayoral throne) Snow White finally tie the knot in this arc from the series about the fairy-tale characters who walk among us (or, at least, New Yorkers). That can’t happen before Mowgli finds missing, moping Bigby and the latter undertakes a reprisal mission against the Adversary. 
Collecting issues #48-51 of writer and creator Bill Willingham’s award-winning Vertigo series, WOLVES also includes newly-created maps of Fabletown and the Homelands illustrated by Willingham and, as a special bonus, Willingham’s complete script to the double-sized issue #50.
At this point, I don’t know if I have anything inventive to say about the Fables series.  I love each and every volume.  This one was no exception.  We see the reappearance of Bigby Wolf (always one of my favorites).  Plus, the kids the grown so much.  I love seeing all six (I mean seven! hee hee Frau Totenkinder) kids grow and change.  They’re such fun little side characters.  And Cinderella makes a very integral appearance to the mission in the Cloud Kingdoms.  Can’t wait for the next volume, but I will have to as it’s on hold at the library.
