Reason for Reading: next in the series.
I've never liked Jack of Fables as much as the original Fables series but it has been more than interesting enough to keep me reading. A lot of fans were somewhat disappointed with a "Great Crossover", however I was not one of them. I was very excited to read this new volume of Jack, knowing that a whole new story arc would be starting from the remnants that remained from the "Great Crossover". The new Jack, Jack Frost, is a lovable character, so unlike the original Jack Horner that I was greatly expectant to see where he would fit into the new storyline.
The volume opens with Jack H. and Gary sitting in a diner where Jack tells Gary a story from his past that he had never told before about landing on an island full of fabled apes and helping them with their troubles where he eventually became king of the jungle for a while. There he met such fables as George, the ever curious, a gorilla by the name of Magilla and of course the great Kong. This was fun old usual Jack stuff.
Then we moved onto the titular story arc with the remaining four chapters which switch back and forth between Jack and Gary and Jack Frost who has set off to be a hero with a wooden owl as his sidekick whom he names MacDuff. Jack is in great trouble as it seems that he is transforming into something, he starts gaining weight, his skin goes all pimply and he's losing his hair. His T-shirts are hilarious! As he continues to transform into some large creature he has an instinct to reach a certain place before the transformation completes. Meanwhile, Jack Frost is having a tough time finding anyone who needs rescuing or the the real services of a hero until he advertises and a young woman comes to him to help save her town from the night walkers, man-eating monsters that live in the forest. As he sets out to take care of the night walkers they in turn seek him to save them from an evil sorcerer and Jack has the potential to save two clients all in one go.
I love, love, love the new direction Jack of Fables has taken. Jack Frost is a welcome addition to the cast and is going to be a much more fun character than Jack ever was. It isn't clear how (or if) the old Jack in his new form will be part of the story arc now so that remains to be seen. If he is still going to remain in constant play I think he'll be much more interesting this way! The only thing that disappointed me was the cover (which is really cool!) but not representative of anything that happens in the book. The Snow Queen, nor any of those cool characters make an appearance in this volume.

Read information about the authorIn the late 1970s to early 1980s he drew fantasy ink pictures for the Dungeons & Dragons Basic and Expert game rulebooks. He first gained attention for his 1980s comic book series Elementals published by Comico, which he both wrote and drew. However, for reasons unknown, the series had trouble maintaining an original schedule, and Willingham's position in the industry remained spotty for many years. He contributed stories to Green Lantern and started his own independent, black-and-white comics series Coventry which lasted only 3 issues. He also produced the pornographic series Ironwood for Eros Comix.
In the late 1990s Willingham reestablished himself as a prolific writer. He produced the 13-issue Pantheon for Lone Star Press and wrote a pair of short novels about the modern adventures of the hero Beowulf, published by the writer's collective, Clockwork Storybook, of which Willingham was a founding member. In the early 2000s he began writing extensively for DC Comics, including the limited series Proposition Player, a pair of limited series about the Greek witch Thessaly from The Sandman, and most notably the popular series Fables
