Not a bad little one off story Gave depth to Boy Blue.Sad and ironic, like real fairy tales are. Es geht wieder aufw rts, der Band ist richtig gut Ich mochte die R ckblicke in die Vergangenheit der Fables und wie sich die Flucht nach Fabletown ereignete Man hat hier so viel Neues und viele Hintergrundinfos erfahren, das war wirklich spannend und interessant.Zu guter Letzt wurde auch noch ein neuer M rchencharakter eingef hrt, der in den n chsten Teilen hoffentlich noch f r einigen Wirbel sorgen wird. A beautiful one shot story that I was pleased to find nestled into the fourth trade paperback volume of the Fables saga.Interesting plot points connected here but what really grabbed me was the artwork This was my first introduction to Craig Hamilton and P Craig Russell great amounts of minute detail and color Reminds me of those posters I used to enjoy as a kid where you d marvel at them for a long time trying to pick out all the intricate pieces hidden in the detail.

Beautifully illustrated prequel to the ongoing Fables series Actual rating 4.5 So happy to start 2020 with the Fable series I have yet to dislike one of these volumes They are all just so excellent and gripping I loved learningabout Boy Blue and I cannot wait to dive into the next volume. This graphic novel serves as a prequel to the Fables series and details the fate of the Last Castle to fall to the adversary, which also reveals some of Little Boy Blue s origin Great fantasy tale with great art. This is the one that started it for me Once I read this, I had to read the whole series, and it is good.One of the best single issues I have ever read and I have read many. Gory, but hey, it s war Nice one off, beautiful art.9 spear thrusts out of 10 If you re into battles, this one goes in depth.I m generally not one for overly descriptive battle scenes but even I got choked up a bit for the fall of characters that were just barely introduced to me at the beginning of this relatively short standalone graphic novel Sacrifice, I think, is always an emotion that tends to evoke strong feelings from readers regardless of whether or not the reader prefers the genre For most of us, I think it reminds us of sacrifices that have been made for us a If you re into battles, this one goes in depth.I m generally not one for overly descriptive battle scenes but even I got choked up a bit for the fall of characters that were just barely introduced to me at the beginning of this relatively short standalone graphic novel Sacrifice, I think, is always an emotion that tends to evoke strong feelings from readers regardless of whether or not the reader prefers the genre For most of us, I think it reminds us of sacrifices that have been made for us and the nobility of sacrifice crosses cultural barriers in a way few other themes do The Last Castle tells Boy Blue s backstory and sheds light on why he reacts the way he does when Red Riding Hood shows up in the original series and focuses on the last stronghold in the last portal between the Mundy world and the invasion of the Adversary Described through Boy Blue s perspective, you see the lead up to the final battle before they fall and how Boy Blue ended up in our world I didn t like it quite as much as I liked the other spinoffs because battles aren t really my thing, but I still enjoyed it
