Jack of Fables 4: Americana – Bill Willingham

Jack 04
This is actually quite a weak volume. It is just a parade of characters who did and didn’t make it into the Great American Novel. Very few of whom have anything to say. There is some good interplay between Jack and Hillary Page and we do find out what the superglue is for.

The art and in particular the colours are superb. There are few to no blank backgrounds and the characters are wonderfully expressive. It is only this visual consistency that saves the series dipping below the excellence of the main Fables line.

Thumbs Up, but it was close.
