Jack of Fables 8: The Fulminate Blade – Bill Willingham

Jack 08Here is one more tale of Jack’s dully heroic son Jack. It’s an ok piece built around a single reveal at the end. From any other author or in any other series this would be acceptable but the humour and eloquence Willingham is capable of delivering leaves this tale coming up short. There are some funnies along the way and the world is suitably quirky but this isn’t all Fables can be.

Ironically the art is some of the most structurally free and innovative. There are few if any traditional panel grids and we see our first landscape panel forcing you to turn the book the other way.

A Thumbs Up but still a poor relation.
