Jack of Fables 7: The New Adventures of Jack and Jack – Bill Willingham

Jack 07
This is another excellent tale that goes to show not all stories are predictable. Most of the book features Jack’s son who is shaping up to be an interesting fellow. Jack himself is preoccupied with another imaginative problem. The book is subtle and straightforward with a very limited cast which makes a big change from The Great Crossover Event and a nice way to wind down from such epic adventure.

The art is great and the new artists do a superb job. The layout is imaginative and dynamic when it needs to be but not afraid to be traditional. Willingham also finds a way to include the artist change in the story as he did previously. It’s these unusual touches that really set Fables apart from other narratives which is what you want in a story about stories.

Thumbs Up!
