The New Adventures of Jack

I am continuing to blog about every book I read. It’s a lot of fun having this yearly reading log. 

The latest additions to the list are three trade paperbacks from the on-going Jack of Fables series. 

Jack of Fables: Volume 5 – Turning Pages by Bill Willingham, Matthew Sturges, Russ Braun, Tony Akins, Jose Marzan Jr., and Andrew Pepoy.

Story tale characters are immortal even outside of the pages of their books. Jack of Fables has lived a very long time. This issue retells a story from 1883 where Jack is a bit of an outlaw. The Big Bad Wolf is tracking him down to bring him to justice.

Jack of Fables: Volume 6 – The Big Book of War by Bill Willingham, Matthew Sturges, Russ Braun, Tony Akins, Jose Marzan Jr., and Dan Green.

The Bookburner wants to erase all of the storybook characters. He is an evil of such that the Fables have never before faced. It’s a good thing that Jack is elected as battle commander in an epic war, or is it? The comedy is this issue is ramped up and so is the action.

Jack of Fables: Volume 7 – The New Adventures of Jack and Jack by Bill Willingham, Matthew Sturges, Russ Braun, Tony Akins, Jose Marzan Jr., and Andrew Pepoy.

The series takes a strange turn here. It seems that the legendary Jack of Fables, aka Little Jack Horner, Jack B. Nimble, Jack the Giant Slayer, and countless other aliases has a son named after him. And after a tragic turn of events, the son takes over as the main character in this series.

Jack hasn’t always been the most noble character, but I find it hard to believe that his story has come to an end with this volume. Can’t wait to read the next one to see what happens.
