Jack of Fables, Vol. 1: The (Nearly) Great Escape (Jack of Fables #1) (Fables Universe #7)

Jack-1-01-Bowl-of-Suck

Oh that’s a turn of phrase.

So I’ve decided that I’m going to read the Fables serieses(sp?) in published order, with a bit of jumping around. That includes:

Fables Jack of Fables Cinderella Fairest

All combined into the overall Fables Universe.

For the first outing, Jack of Fables, Vol. 1: The (Nearly) Great Escape is quite a story. After the events of Fables, Vol. 6: Homelands, Jack is on the run, only to be captured by some sort of Men in Black feeling organization that wants to do study and depower Fables. Cool concept, kind of terrifying execution. And hey, Goldilocks survived after all. Called that.

It’s a crazy wonderful tale and I’m glad I read it here. Makes sense before everything continues to go mad.

Spoilery images:

Jack-1-01-Beauty-and-the-Beast

That is quite the character. Beauty and the Beast eat your heart out.

Even more so when they go to escape:

Jack-1-02-A-good-fence

It’s a (temporarily) sentient fence.

Jack-1-03-Egg-based-life

Egg-based life. That is all. Also Goldilocks be very very strange.

Jack-1-04-Bag-man

And then you get the downright Lovecraftian Bag Men. I want to know more about that…
