Reading Challenges: Fables Series

Get ready for Jack’s adventures out West, as Smiling Jack Candle crosses paths with a grim sheriff from back East who carries no gun. Collecting issues #22-27 of the series Publishers Weekly says “any sophisticated comics fan will enjoy.”

Jack in the Wild West!  Very entertaining.  I liked the story.  However, I think the better story was when we moved back to present day with the Page Sisters, Mr. Revise, and the Bookburner.  The story’s getting so complicated and twisted…  just the way I like it.  I loved seeing the different personalities of the Page Sisters as not just women for Jack to shag but women with their own agendas.  It certainly clarified a few things for me.  And we get to see more of the interaction of Kevin Thorne and Priscilla Page. I wonder what’s going to happen next?  Oh yeah, and we see what Jack’s about to get himself into by returning to Golden Boughs.  Interesting, interesting.
