No, this isn't as good as Fables. No, Jack isn't likeable at all.
But I'd rather read this over a lot of the other boring comics out there. ( )

Volume 2 of Jack of Fables continues Jack’s story as he makes good his escape from the Golden Boughs. While hiding out in the mountains, he relates his story of how he became Jack of Frost. He then decides to try his luck in Las Vegas. When he hooks up with a character called Pathetic Fallacy, he wins big but he comes up against Lady Luck and she manages to cut him down. Although Jack manages to get his revenge, by the end of the book, Jack and his new side-kick are hitch-hiking their way out of Vegas.

Jack is a complete jerk, but he is an entertaining jerk as he moves from one mess after another and I am enjoying this side excursion from the main Fables stories. It’s also very obvious that the authors and artists get a kick out of delivering these Jack stories. ( )

I preferred this novel to the previous volume. I loved how Jack was also Jack Frost and seeing that tale. I really want his son to come into play in later novels. Also enjoyed Lady Luck in Vegas. I hope to see her again. ( )
