Fables Vol 18: Cubs in Toyland (2013) Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha, Gene Ha

I… oh.


There’s death. We were forewarned, but that didn’t mean I was expecting it.

Winter Wolf is off with Bigby, learning how to be the North Wind. Beauty and Beast are still with Flycatcher in Haven. The citizens of Fabletown are trying to recover Fabletown after the death of the Dark Man. But most of the story is focused on the cubs.

Specifically, upon Therese and Dare.

The final story/chapter is set in the future, with Ambrose relating another tale from the past of the Big Bad Wolf, and how he gained his fate.

It’s rather difficult to summarize this volume without giving anything away, but I will tell you to keep an eye on the artwork (something I’m terrible at doing) because it gives you a hint as to what’s going on, right from the start. Which I, of course, missed. :)

Could you start here if you haven’t read anything else in the series?

No. Not really.

If you’re interested in checking out the series, I’d recommend 1001 Nights of Snowfall, which is a complete stand alone that can give you a good idea of whether you’d like the series or not.
