the Battle of Fabletown won, and the surrounding city of New
York none the wiser, the Fables have gained a little time
for rebuilding and reflection - in between the interrogation
of the Adversary's agent and the anticipation of Snow White's
impending motherhood. For Bigby Wolf, the father of her soon-to-be
new-borns, that means a visit with an old friend - and a reminiscence
of another, even deadlier war. For the Mayor of Fabletown,
it means a rude awakening to the harsh realities of civic
administration - and its conflicting demands. And for Snow
herself, it means a long, painful labour - and a series of
joyous, heart wrenching surprises...
Mean Seasons gathers
together several interesting tales from the Fables
stable (no pun intended). My personal favourite was Dog
Company / Frankenstein Versus the Wolf Man. This
two-parter tells the tale of Bigby Wolf and his actions during
the Second World War. Only Bigby can destroy Hitler's latest
weapon - the creation of the long dead professor Frankenstein,
whose work is carried on by German scientists.
rest of this collection deals with a regime change as King
Cole is unseated from his throne as the Major of Fabletown.
Snow White and Bigby are also forced to leave their positions
as Beauty and the Beast are brought in to replace them. And
while Snow plans to head back to Fabletown with her new offspring,
Bigby is unable to do so. Will Snow give up everything to
live with Bigby in the middle of nowhere? Or will she put
her new children first?
is some much needed (if brief) comic relief in the form of
Flycatcher, and just what is Cinderella up to? Why would she
fall head over heels in love with such an old misery as Ichabod
is certainly a collection worth diving head first into. Another
entertaining release from the Fables series.
