Fables: March of the Wooden Soldiers: 48 Hours

Fables: March of the Wooden Soldiers. Finished 4:27, 231 pages.

A Graphic Novel, but not for kids.

Starts with a quick intro of people and plot; which was just as well because somehow I missed the 3rd in this series. Basically, refugee Fables (Pinocchio, Rose Red, Prince Charming) have been living among us in Fabletown, in Manhattan, having fled their magical homelands because of the mysterious Adversary, who hunted and killed the Fables.

This series is about the Fables as they live in exile. This is not a cute retelling; it's dark & gritty.

It's also a lot of fun trying to figure out who the stories & characters are.

I love love love Fables, as you know from Book Expo. If you want Volume 3, I have it, and I'd be happy to lend it to you. Although I seem to think that OCL has some of the Fables trades . . . anyway, the offer's still open.
