This is a meaty volume comprising ten issues of story. We flit all over the place from Geppetto’s machinations to Junebug’s discovery in the cellars of Fabletown. You will be glad there is the cast list in the front to remind you who everyone is. Most of the stories are strong and the single issues set up plot points for the future. The two issue “Boys in the Band” at the end might build to something in the future but seems flat.
The art appears strong and consistent but there are a bevy of artists at work (great to see Gary Erskine at work), particularly in the sub plots. It looks like Vertigo have upgraded their something as the pages appear much more vibrant despite the matt paper.
