Review: Jack of Fables: The Bad Prince by Bill Willingham


Jack of Fables, Vol. 3: The Bad PrinceJack of Fables, Vol. 3: The Bad Prince by Bill Willingham

Pages:126
Format: paperback
Series: Jack of Fables, #3

Synopsis:
Collection of JACK OF FABLES #12-16! Jack's now a wayward Fable in the heartland of America. Follow his extreme road stories as he reveals the secret of his former relationship with the illustrious Snow Queen (when he took her powers and became known as Jack Frost).

Review:
Bill Willingham knows how to put together an interesting read. His dark twist on the classic fairy tales are always engrossing. This read was no different!

The Fables series is a long running, fantastic ride. Animal Farm has so far been my favorite, but all of them are great. This series is a spin-off of the Fables tales, following the many trials and failures of "the famous (and infamous) Jack of Fables".
As always, the characters are absorbing and entertaining. I get a kick out of Gary (or maybe Kevin *winks*), the ever indecisive sidekick of Jack *laughs* I also enjoyed Wicked John, who is connected to Jack, whether Jack or himself like it or not.

My favorite was Part 2: I forgot and Jack O`Lantern.
 

    "You rubes! Once I get my angel wings

I'm going to fly down here and
piss of every one of your
miserable peasant heads!"


I really enjoyed the Jack O`Lantern tale.  It was dark, clever and an example of Jack's ability to make poor decisions from the start. You'll never be bored while reading a tale of Jack.
I highly recommend you check this enchanting series out. You won't regret it!
