Fables: The Good Prince (Volume Ten)

Fables: The Good Prince (Volume Ten)

Bill Willingham

This volume was huge, but completely worth the pain of carrying it around.  At first, I thought the prince in the title referred to Prince Charming, and I was a bit hesitant to hop into the story.  I kind of enjoy disliking him.  However, I quickly realized from the cover that the prince in the issues has red hair–it’s Flycatcher.

From the beginning, I adored Fly and wanted to follow him during his quest.  I especially couldn’t contain my excitement to see Gretel, Lancelot, Trusty John and Weyland Smith.  This was the perfect epic tale filled with love, knights, honor, and great characters.  I am also pleased that Red Hiding Hood didn’t just forget her love and settle for someone else.  She left Fabletown behind and ended up with Fly, who completely deserves only wonderful things.

And speaking of Fly, the cover completely fooled me.  Stupid Willingham.  I was ready to have to accept Fly’s early death.  Thankfully the cover was mostly cruel and untrue.  There is an issue in the middle that takes a break from the drama going on in Haven.  Though I understand why it’s there, I think it could have been saved for another volume.  Also, I think I might have appreciated it more if it wasn’t done by a different artist.  I can’t help it!  I hate change!  The extras in this lengthy volume were covers for the issues, which I liked since the covers are usually awesome.  I think this may be my new favorite volume.  I give it a 5/5.
