Fables: The Great Fables Crossover [vol. 13] by Bill Willingham, et al, 224 pages
Why, oh why, did I feel the need to read this volume??? It must have been because it was the next one in line and no other reason. Really, this crossover volume (which crosses Fables with its obnoxious spin-off Jack of Fables) adds next to nothing to the overarching story and annoys the hell out of me. The only good thing it does is offer a reminder to never pick up Jack of Fables. Conniving blowhard Jack is an OK character to see in small doses on rare occasions, but this volume focuses largely on him (or on his companions in his titular series) and reading it made me glad that he's, for the most part, gone from Fables proper. On to the next one, in the hopes that it will wash the bad taste of The Great Fables Crossover out of my mouth.
