This was a good one. Snow White and her pack are still confirmed to the farm where she and Rose Red are trying to teach the children that it’s important that they control their flying and shape changing abilities. Mowgli continues his search and finally tracks Bigby Wolf down. Bigby goes on a mission to the Empire and his and Snow White’s dilemma is finally resolved.

Of course not all storylines are resolved, the North Wind has taken himself off somewhere and Cinderella has a promise made to Frau Totenkinder hanging over her head. Also, we have yet to learn Geppetto’s reply to Fabletown’s threat. But all in all, a fun read! ( )

(Beware: some mild spoilers in this review. There really are none, because most of the things I mention you can see coming from miles ahead.)

Mowgli searches for (and finds) Bigby Wolf -- and if you call that a spoiler, you'll need to read a lot more books, since that was utterly predictable. The main part of this book is about what Bigby has to do so he can live with Snow White and his offspring while not breaking the rules of Fabletown. Which leads to the introduction of yet more characters from European Fables -- and these ones were a surprise for me. ("Big And Small", the final story collected in this issue, features more of this newly introduced world.)

And thus we've ended up at the controversial "Israel" part of the story, where Bill Willingham just drops the ball in spectacular fashion by featuring a mind-numbingly simplistic view of that subject. See those three stars I've given this book? I'm struggling with myself to defend that high score, because of the myopic way this politically charged topic is used -- and the saccharine, drawn out crap that passes for the marriage between Bigby and Snow White later on in the book does not help (again, this is not a spoiler). If this book had not featured plenty of kick-ass Cinderella, I might have handed it merely one star.

So now I have to ask myself: do I keep reading? Will "Fables" recover from this ridiculous nonsense? Or will it bring more stories that lack nuance, more violence as revenge? ( )

Bigby! I missed him especially after learning his tale in [b:Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall|21322|Fables 1001 Nights of Snowfall|Bill Willingham|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327870123s/21322.jpg|3163819]. In the trade I had it had the script for the whole Bigby mission and aftermath. It described the proposal scene as:
They kiss. This the truest of true love's kisses since the beginning of time. It's every poem ever written and every song ever sung. This is the one panel at which the dream of every female reader of FABLES has come true. Each and every one of them must be made to cry or squel or swoon like a character in a Jane Austen novel. Don't blow it Buckingham. We sort of, kind of know where you live.

Also enjoyed seeing Mowgli and Cinderella again. ( )

Oh, resolution tpb. This is the one which brings Bigsby (and Ghost) back. And sets Bagira free, because Mowgli accomplished that earlier task, through fire and great schemes of Bigsby not wanting to be found.

I *LOVE* all the scenes with the little kids. And I like that they are being trained up proper by The North Wind, and that they get challenged that until they can make 30 days they can not leave. I love how much Red continues to grow.

I love that Bigsby went on a mission before coming back, and the whole of the conversation between Charming (as Snow's ex-husband who actually cares about the if...) an' Bigsby (as the father of Snow's children) before he leaves about whether there should be some message to give. Which I won't spoil because it was too perfect.

I love how exactly they get around the rule. And I love the whole of the wedding issue. I love all the little new insights into Cinderella.
