Fables: Homelands

by Bill Willingham, et al

The center story of this Fables collection is Little Boy Blue's quest in the Homelands. In the previous collection (or issue #31, if you've been following the comic) Blue took the Witching Cloak and the Vorpal Blade from the Fabletown armory and embarked on a mission back to the dimensional worlds from which the Fables came. His objective is to kill the Adversary, the conqueror of their homelands and to rescue his true love, Little Red Riding Hood. (Well, she's all grown up, so I should probably drop the "little".) It's a classic quest tale, fraught with dangers and wonders, and peppered from that magic/mundane mix that is the Fables series. And as an appetizer, you can enjoy the story of how Jack the giant killer, beanstalk climber and candlestick jumper built a Hollywood empire. Cool, huh?

Check it out.
