Über dieses E-Book

Der Feind steht vor der Tür! In diesem Band erfahrt ihr die Vorgeschichte der heiß geliebten Fables Crew! Blue Boy, persönlicher Assistent der stellvertretenden Bürgermeisterin Snow White, erzählt von einer Begebenheit aus dem großen Krieg, der Bigby Wolf, Prince Carming, Bluebeard und die Anderen aus der Heimat vertrieb. In seiner Geschichte geht es nicht nur um Mut, sondern auch um geborchene Herzen. Wir begegnen einer rätselhaften Lady in Rot und finden heraus, warum Blue Boy auf seiner Trompete nur den Blues spielt. Dass in der Nähe eines Tores zwischen dieser Welt und der der Fables plötzlich Kobolde gesichtet wurden, ist das deutliche Zeichen dafür, dass in der Gegenwart ein neuerlicher Angriff durch den Feind droht, der die Fables damals ins Exil getrieben hatte. Und was hat es mit den Halunken in schwarzen Anzügen auf sich, die Pinocchio so ähnlich sehen?

    Seriously, this series is gold. Each volume gets even better. As if Fabletown didn't have enough drama to deal with eternally, they may have a new threat. It's been nearly two centuries since anyone escaped from their ancestral land and made it into the mundy world. Red Riding Hood shows up out of the blue, somehow having escaped the adversary, but something isn't right. Bigby Wolf thinks she might be a spy so he sets about trying to prove it. Meanwhile a very large and very pregnant Snow White must keep the peace and keep Fabletown going while Bigby is off collecting evidence. Love it!!!

    Entertaining, surprisingly well written for the graphic novel medium. Nothing to write home about but an entertaining series that I'll continue to read. The more you read of this series the more addictive it becomes. Well-plotted, but I still think it is lacking and deep psychological or philosophical revelations that I like in stories.

    In this installment of the Fables story, one fable betrays them all and members of the Adversary come back to attack Fabletown. Another engrossing volume, this book provides a bit of background into the flee from the motherland. It also ends on a cliffhanger, so I can hardly wait to see what comes next...

    Read on August 18, 2014 I think this is my favorite so far. It felt like the story moved forward and there was so much happening. Boy Blue's story about the last days in the Homeland was a great opener. It was nice to hear more about the Adversary and see just a little more into who the enemy is.

    The adversary has come to the real world (the 'Mundy' world as the Fables say). And boy oh boy is it a battle. There are so many subplots in it. The back story of the final group of Fables out of the homeland. Snow is still pregnant with Wolf's baby. The appearance of Red Riding Hood. Prince Charming running for Mayor. It's a very, very busy bunch of issues.But this TPB is also made up of a lot of issues so the stories don't seem crushed underneath each other. They have room to breathe.The art wasn't bad, although some of it wasn't my style, and Boy Blue seemed to go from three feet tall to six feet tall and back a couple of times.

    An exciting volume as one of the gateways between the world and the homeland of the fable creatures is breached. This threat to Fabletown ends in a tremendous battle with lots of action and even the deaths of some familiar characters. As Bigby is away checking the breached gateway and misses most of the battle, some unusual characters prove to be heroes in their desperate attempt to save their home.During the course of the book, some of the other characters are highlighted, as Little Boy Blue tells the tale of how the last of the storybook characters escaped from the clutches of the adversary and that of the brave champions who remained behind to give them time to reach safety. Also, Prince Charming makes his bid to take over from King Cole as mayor of Fabletown. This is a very addictive series and Volume 4: The March of the Wooden Soldiers was intense, exciting and colourful.

    March of the Wooden Soldiers presents the strongest chapter in the Fables saga so far. The main story of the fables' exile from the Homelands and their eternal war against the Adversary is brought more to the center.The storytelling seems to tighten up, and we see some remarkable twists in the tale. Several new players are brought to the field, and old acquaintances leave. Willingham is finding his voice, and is becoming one of the greatest comic writers today.Art-wise we are about on the same ground as in the previous chapters. I have always liked Mark Buckingham's art in the series, but I don't much care for P. Craig Russell's style. Especially his inking is too forceful. In this chapter it is kinda ok, since his portion is a flashback sequence, and is entitled to a different art style.One of the nice art touches that we see more here are the page borders. Small pictures on the side of the pages, which show the part of the story that the page belongs to. A simple but very nice touch, which we'll see more in the next chapter.

    Reason for Reading: Next in the series.Comments: This whole volume deals with one complete story arc from beginning to end. I don't want to give away any plot points as it's too much fun to have it all unfold as you read it yourself so I'll stick with characters and the main theme. We start with a flashback of Little Boy Blue telling his last days and hours in the Homelands with Red Riding Hood. I love it every time time there is a flashback to the old days and I always get a little excited when I see one so this was a great way to start off the book. This flashback later on will prove to be relevant to the events of the main story.The characters are all dealing with their lives and many are featured and given spotlights but this volume concentrates on Snow White, Boy Blue and Pinocchio, a character we've seen but haven't got know up to this point. Fabletown is under attack by a menacing force and it takes the combined forces of all the residents both of the town and the farm to come together and do battle with a possible unbeatable enemy. As usual, the stunning death of characters is to be expected and many new characters are introduced while on the final page we are left with several story arcs that remain hanging.This is one of my favourite volumes to date. I really love how intricate the plot is with this series. There are so many story arcs going on within an often overarching main plot per volume that it really just sweeps you away as a reader. This volume has it all from romance to battles from familiar characters to introducing new ones and both touching moments and shocking moments. Volume four is a real winner in the series!

    The drama in fabletown amps up, when it goes from intrigue to a straight out invasion of fabletown. The invaders, a horde of nearly unstoppable Men in black, and it takes some pretty large sacrifices to put them at halt. The story is as light-hearted as ever, with the series trademark mix of Shrek and the west wing. All in all, a big lift for an otherwise good series.

    This volume takes us through the Lost Castle as well as the March of the Wooden Soldiers, which is an invasion by the Adversary into Fabletown. The Lost Castle, which was a stand alone book, is essential reading before you move into the eight part March of the Wooden Soldiers story line. As FableTown prepares for war, the plans for the election are moving along as well, as well as other personal stories, such as Snow White's pregnancy. I love King Cole's attempt to find anything, anything at all, to eliminate the upcoming election between him and Prince Charming. And I could just be acclimating myself to the much more mature tone of the Fables title, but I didn't find as much sex and nudity or violence (despite that both the Lost Castle and the later portion of The March of the Wooden Soldiers depicts battles and war.I think my favorite graphic novel volume so far is still Animal Farm, but this one is a runner up and definitely better than volume 3.

    The story of the last escape from the Homelands is revealed, Snow White struggles with her pregnancy, Prince Charming runs for Mayor, and the Adversary sends his wooden troops into Fabletown for a fiery showdown. This collection is a great installment in the series where we not only get to know some of the characters that have been peripheral before (like Little Boy Blue and Red Riding Hood) but we also get more insight into the personal lives of the more central ones - and Snow finally gets to come out about her feelings for Bigby in a great scene. We also get to see some of the awesome powers of the Adversary and see that he indeed has his sights firmly set on conquering Fabletown (and their magic) - it is becoming evident that we're in for a tale of epic proportion.

    I'm loving what they do with all the characters. A great way to bring to life the little things you always imagined about childhood fables, and the characters in them, in a very adult way.

    Another big volume (240 pages), but this time the issues collected here -- 19-21 and 23-27 -- are not merely a collection of individual adventures. Instead they link up into one ambitious story line: the first attack of the Adversary on Fabletown. (The Adversary is the person whose armies drove the Fable characters from their magical homelands.)

    Hence the involvement of plenty of characters and lots of magic, all in service of a story arc that focuses more on actions that affect all characters rather than the more personal stories of previous volumes.

    I rather liked this volume. We're finally shedding some of the status quo of the settled nature of the Fables and shaking things up again: we're finally seeing more of the Adversary, at least in that now he's threatening the Fables once more. I liked the story of Red Riding Hood and Boy Blue, and the battle scenes were pretty epic.And I can't help but like Prince Charming a bit, somehow. He's an ass, but he's funny (witness the scene with Beauty and Beast) and he's smart.

    The Fables series returns to a full story arc in this collection as the Fables' sanctuary in New York is invaded by forces of the Adversary. I liked this one better than the other compilations thus far as the characters are developing and growing on me, and this story was well-constructed. Even the villains, while derivative of Agent Smith in The Matrix, were a clever and interesting conceit.

    Fables finally manages to kick it up a notch, showing us the first major attack by the Adversary and his forces (with a pretty hefty hint as to his identity), as well as providing some much-needed backstory. It's an enormous volume, about twice the size of the previous ones, but generally far more satisfying.

    Red Riding Hood manages to escape from the hands of the Adversary and to Fabletown - the first person to successfully leave the homelands in centuries. But in quick pursuit are a trio of strangely wooden brothers with a penchant for violence. Bigby Wolf smells trouble brewing from a mile away, and the residents of Fabletown batten down the hatches for a battle they fear is coming sooner rather than later.This book picks up a little bit after Volume 3, with a now very pregnant Snow White continuing to oversee the Fabletown government for King Cole, who is being challenged for his mayoral position by Snow's ex-husband, Prince Charming. Author Willingham provides a helpful who's who at the beginning of the book to bring readers up to speed / refresh their memories. As with the other three volumes, I quite enjoyed Willingham's humor, including the play on words, as well as the fun he has with updating and changing fairy tale characters to serve his purposes. Once again, I was happy with the small hints of romance for my Bigby-Snow ship. This book had a lot more action (i.e., fight scenes) than in the previous volumes, and these were surprisingly captivating for me, as someone who doesn't usually enjoy long action sequences. As with the other books in this series, this title sort of stands alone in that the story is fairly self-contained but it definitely harkens back to the previous title and leaves open some storylines that hopefully will be continued in Volume 5. I for one am excited to keep reading this series and see what happens next!

    This is the 4th collection in the Fables series and it was my favorite one so far. Things really get epic in this installment with massive battles and goblins and spies...oh my!When Red Riding Hood mysteriously passes into the Mundy world many Fables celebrate the arrival as a sign of hope for their old world. Bigby Wolf though suspects something is up; he smells treachery. When the Adversary finally gets an army of Wooden Men into the Mundy world the battle between the Adversary and the Fables is epic.The first chapter in this book tells us all something we've been dying to know. Exactly how did the Fables get driven from their homeland? The rendition of the Fables exile is wonderful backstory and wonderful to read. Then things get even better; the long lost Red Riding Hood appears and gives the Fables both hope and trouble.This is the installment in the series that finally pulls the whole Fables story into something epic and wonderful. Now we start to get a look at the Adversary, the very thing that drove the Fables into our world. The plot is wonderfully twisty turny with betrayals, spies, and misunderstandings. There is also some intrigue as Prince Charming decides to run for mayor and positions himself as a benefactor of all Fables.There is humor in here, action, and some wonderful answers as well as new questions. The final battle between the Fables and the Wooden Soldiers is incredibly well done and was an absolutely awesome read. The illustration is detailed and easy to follow (if a bit outdated looking at times..but that's my fault for not reading these sooner).Overall I really, really enjoyed this installment in the Fables series. It really broadened the story and just made the whole thing more epic and fantastic to me. Highly recommended for fans of fantasy graphic novels. Recommended for adult readers because of violence, language, and nudity.

    Fables: March of the Wooden Soldiers, which is volume four of the graphic novels, reprints the following issues: Fables: the Last Castle and Fables 19-21, 23-27. The James Jean covers for the original issues are reproduced at the end of the book. The cover for Fables: the Last Castleis used as the lower part of the title page as well as being reproduced in full after the two-page character guide, 'Who's Who in Fabletown'. (I blush to admit that I was almost completely through the book before I realized that the title was a pun.)It's an exciting volume, opening with Boy Blue telling Snow White about the sacrifice of many brave Fables so that final escape boat could carry refugees out of the Homelands. (This happened roughly in the early 19th century as we Mundies reckon time.) Boy Blue had been fighting the armies of the Adversary for 15 years when the beautiful Red Riding Hood is the last refugee to make it into the Far Keep. Doctor Swineheart patches up the wounded Red long enough for her to have a quick romance with Blue. The final battle is brutal and we see how some of the defenders died. It's not pretty. As always, there are touches of humor, such as the bet Britomart makes with Robin Hood and the conversation Prince Charming has with his third wife, Cinderella, on their way to the escape boat. The art isn't just beautiful, it rewards the reader who examines the panels. For example, when Red Riding Hood and her horse are racing for the castle, they leap over the remains of Cinderella's pumpkin coach, where vultures are feasting on the corpses of her poor horses.Blue survived because Colonel Bearskin selected him to watch it all and warn the escape boat when the last defender had fallen. The witching cloak provided Blue's escape. Red stayed behind to share Blue's fate, not knowing the provision made for him. Nearly two centuries later, Blue hasn't forgotten her.Back in the present, history repeats itself as Red escapes the Homelands through the Oz gateway to Canada. Mayor Cole considers this a cause for rejoicing. Sheriff Bigby is much more suspicious, based on his experiences in World Wars I & II. Could Bigby be right? He's going to investigate. Remember Kay from Hans Christian Anderson's The Snow Queen? He makes an appearance here. How, I don't know, given that Mr. Anderson was born in 1805, so he probably hadn't written the story when the events of The Last Castle took place. Perhaps Fables created in the 19th century never got their own Homeland?Meanwhile, three strange men in black enter New York City. They overhear Jack Horner trying to entice King Thrushbeard into financing a plan of his. The King isn't interested, but the men in black are, much as Jack comes to wish they weren't.Another subplot involves Prince Charming's desire to be the new mayor. Snow White is very obviously pregnant from that magic-induced overnighter with Bigby and she's not happy about it. It doesn't prevent her from marshalling Fabletown's defenses when the men in black invade. Will everyone survive?In fairy tales, not everyone gets to have a happy ending.

    Lemme just say here, I had a theory in this book, based on one line, and it took until issue 50-something to prove I was right. And I deeply love that kind of storytelling honestly. I was so so so pleased about it. Even as I mostly drastically bored of the whole Marching Wooden Soliders, aside from the joke of the family at the window trying to figure out who they are.

    Journalist number one, with the whole vampire thing, amused me. Charming, continuing to be an annoying, but also deciding to run for Mayor I was very out on my whole thought process of. Aside from a child wanting something to make everyone look at them again.

    But "The Last Castle" was the first time Fables have me chills/goosebumps.

    I wasn't really in the mood for this one. I didn't want to look at the pretty pictures, I just wanted to read a story. And about halfway through, I decided that as all I wanted to know was what happened, but didn't care about the subtleties, I flipped through as fast as possible, and as a consequence I probably missed a lot. Not helped by the fact that it is partway through a sequence of stories, and because it is a trade paperback collection of some number of issues of the original comic, there is a lot of unresolved storyline. Not one that I'd suggest people read, and not one that I'm going to go out and try and find the rest of the story either

    The first novels introduced plot lines. This is the novel that introduces the Adversary. The appearance of Red Riding Hood, and the first Fable to get out of the homelands in over a century sends the Fable world into a flurry. Some welcome her with open arms, others are a little more untrustworthy. This is the volume that really starts the Fables universe. The previous volumes introduced characters and history.

    Fast paced, action packed and with no filler. This is the best volume in the series thus far, as the story arc becomes clearer and more epic whilst retaining its humour.
