Fables Vol. 20: Camelot (2014) Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha, Russ Braun, Barry Kitson

I actually read this last month, but since it was on the day we caught the train, I forgot about it when I came back. It wasn’t until I was trying to clear off the table I remembered I’d hadn’t written about it.

Oh Rose Red. You try so hard, and you still get everything so very wrong.

Meanwhile, Bigby is still shattered into millions of pieces, and Snow is holed up with her kids (those that are left) trying to avoid her death and a war within Fabletown.

Aside from the HEAVY foreshadowing that we are not going to get a happily every after, we do get two threads I really liked. One was the North Wind coming into her powers, and the other was a brief glimpse into the afterlife. I really enjoyed the quick glimpse at one of my favorite characters.

I’m also almost dreading the coming conclusion, after all the preparation for horrible things.
