Fables, Vol. 10: The Good Prince . The story of Ambrose (Flycatcher).
In a nut shell: he finds the ghost of Lancelot (yes, that Lancelot), Excaliber (yes, that Excaliber), saves a bunch of damned Fable souls, and makes a kingdom where anyone who wants to sit out the coming war can be safe . If you’d have said that was his coming storyline when we first met him, I’d have thought you mad.
It’s kind of a crazy escalation of power, but for Fly it actually really works. He’s a fun character. And as powered us as he is, I don’t think we have to worry much about him ‘breaking’ things in the coming war.
A powerful story.
Cool scenes and spoilers ahoy:
Boy Blue telling him this is such an interesting idea. He’s really quiet the vetern for all he still looks like a boy. And he has a point. All the magic in the world can’t stop a large enough army.
Huh. So goes here? Sure. It works.
The art style is weird, but the story is cute. I totally understand Bigby here. Six (seven) kids. Man.
They’re so adorably children. A spirit of wind… farts really good.
Turns out it’s all a proxy war between two crazy powerful individuals, even if they powers involved don’t both know it yet. I wonder if she’s full of it or if that’s how it’s actually going to come to be?
All of this, Fabletown and their resistance having a chance, comes from the kindness Snow White and Rose Red showed to a woman then found burnt in an oven one time. Fascinating.
“Watching the Fly show” is such a funny idea. He’s off building a kingdom in one of the most fantastic magical ways he could and they’re all watching it on a magical TV.
A neutral party of sorts, even if he did cut off a huge part of Geppetto’s power once again. I wonder if Geppetto will try to invade (again) and bring Fly back into the war.

Playing Flycatcher. That really does put it in perspective. He’s become a Fable among the Fables now.
