Oh, Snow, Bigby, and the Cubs, they continue to have some good adventures. I’ve been curious about what Willingham was going to do with all these characters as certainly showing them running around the farm or doing things like going to school wouldn’t exactly be super interesting. Or really wouldn’t be what the Fables comic books are based on interest-wise.
Not surprising to find the North Wind has pissed off the other winds by dominating them. I love Bigby reminding everyone about tossing down with his father and winning. Zephyrus, Yaponcha, and Fei Lian were probably completely justified in wanting some kind of revenge; they just shouldn’t underestimate the combined fury of Snow and Bigby.
I adore that Winter’s challenge was to find Bellflower and Dunster. I’m glad that they’re not going to be out of this book. Winter’s kind of adorable. Of course, the children also have the horrible prophecy abut them. But it does make them have something epic to do.
The Wizard of Oz and the rest of the books must have just come into public domain. I’m just not a fan of Bufkin. They just seem to be setting up Bufkin with a kingdom or something equally ridiculous.
I’m kind of curious to see if Rose Red will be held to her bargain with the ghost. Or if it was indeed all a dream. I do like her helping Santa. That was pretty cute. I’m all aboard with her being a bigger player in these stories again.
The shorts in this book didn’t really do anything for me.
