A special interlude issue featuring guest art by Lan Medina and Craig Hamilton. While Boy Blue is questing through the Homelands, Fabletown is having major issues of its own. Someone has been divulging war secrets and strategies to the enemy, and when the culprit is discovered, the consequences are shocking…
"The Great Fables Crossover" part 7 of 9! Jack Horner, meet Jack Frost. But wait a minute! Didn't we already establish that Jack Horner was Jack Frost? Concerning the nature of his craft, Tom Clancy once opined that the "difference between fiction and reality is that fiction has to make sense." If this is so, how do we explain Jack being put in charge of the Farm and all of Fablekind? How do we explain Jack being allowed to babysit Bigby and Snow's cubs? How does that make sense?
In "Rose Red" part 4 of 5, the Farm is in terrible shape. Factions competing for control of the Fables are splitting it apart. Who can save them? Who, dammit, who? Hush now, and settle down, dear readers. For once it wasn't a rhetorical question. Here's your answer: At long last, it's Rose Red to the rescue. Well... maybe. We'll see.
JACK OF FABLES #32
Part 5 of "Jack's Big Book of War." This is the issue where all of the secrets are revealed! It's like a Sophocles play, but with explosions! In fact, we reveal so many secrets in this issue that we've had to hire two new interns at the Fables "Secrets Lab" to dream up new ones. All this in preparation for the "Great Fables Crossover Event" beginning right on this issue's heels!
Disgusted with recent events in his own book, Jack Horner quits his own series, returns to FABLES in a big way and tries to pick up his on-again off-again romance with Rose Red while she's at her most vulnerable. But Jack Horner isn't the only wandering Jack who shows up at the Farm. In the meantime, Kevin Thorn is still safely ensconced in his writing retreat and about to start over on the universe, which would mean writing everything that currently exists out of existence!
Hell hath no fury like Geppetto scorned, and he's about to prove that to the Fables community! The puppet master has a hunch concerning the source of true power in the forest, and it's not who you'd expect. After a long talk with the mysterious Grandfather Oak, Gepetto has an offer for the Fables – and it may be one they can't refuse.
If you think that Rose Red is truly ready to suit up, grab a deadly weapon and save the day, you may be in for a rude awakening. Or you may be absolutely right. Regardless, heads will roll, blood will spill and Snow White and Rose Red, the loveliest sisters in all the lands, will be forever changed after "Rose Red" part 5 of 5.
In this fantastic 100-page issue, it's time to put an end to Mister Dark once and for all, and time for the Fables to return home to Fabletown. For that to happen, one of the Fables agrees to take on the Dark Man in single combat! It's big, it's epic, and if you live in New York City, you may want to take a quick vacation when this issue comes out, because things are going to get wrecked!
