Format: Paperback
Reason for Reading: Next in the series.

First thing I couldn't help but notice was that a-zon dot com has an average rating of three for this and that means there must be quite a few unhappy reviews out there. I won't read any until I'm done my own review, but what can I say. I love Fables! I guess I'm a pushover and not that hard to please because I thought this issue was great; the only storyline I don't like is the one of Rose Red. Otherwise, this volume felt special and the balloons on the cover really worked with the celebration it felt like with the combination of Fables and Jack of Fables together in one volume. This book contains 9 issues: 3 each of Fables, Jack of Fables, and a mini-series titled The Literals.

So here we have the "bad guy" from Jack of Fables reaching his ultimate point and the entire book focuses on the fight of the Fables and the Literals joining together to hopefully defeat him. We are briefly reminded of the Dark Man occupying the ruins of Fableland at the very beginning but otherwise that storyline is set aside for the one involving The Literals. It was pretty much a "day in the life of" for the Fables and when vol. 14 continues the plot will pick up where it left off. This is a whole different story for Jack of Fables though. The story that has been working up in the previous 6 volumes is culminated here, so it is essential that Jack of Fables readers read this volume whether they regularly read the original Fables books or not. Without giving any plot away, I'm excited about the direction the new Jack of Fables will take. The new Jack is a very promising character, the story could go in any direction, but enough old characters have been left in play that we'll still see familiar faces.

All in all, I loved the story.

I love FABLES, but this volume was dreadful. It was an exercise in writing gone wrong. There was nothing mind boggling, and the stories with Literals were rather annoying. I saw the Literals as a bad version of Gaiman's Endless. Too much talk, and little substance. Speaking as an artist, some of the artwork was truly horrible.. Saying that, there were funny and charming moments in the story. SPOILER ALERT!!! I loved that Bigby was forced to change shape, until he found the will to stay true to himself. I love that Sam pitched Hansel off a cliff. I love Rose Red's stinky depression. I love Jack Frost... SPOILER ENDS!!! Despite all those moments, the story was tiresome, especially coming after the wrenching "The Dark Ages".

Bottom line: I would not want to read this volume again.

There's a lot going on in this collection. Too much, if -- like me -- you're only following the Willlingham-penned works. A lot of what was happening made the bare minimum of sense and I didn't find any of the tie-ins to the other story arcs especially interesting. I see this as the first disappointing offering in the Fables mythology.

It's not the best fables out there, but still it's worth a read. DO NOT skip this arc.
