Ironic Contradictions

I'm a long time reader - since way back when I was seven. That makes it over three quarters of my life that I will be a reader for. But it is worth it. When I'm not reading or wasting my time online on here or Goodreads I'll be off playing video games, studying teaching and messing around with friends and pop culture. Or reading some more.
Fables, Vol. 15: Rose Red - Bill Willingham, Steve Leialoha, Mark Buckingham, Dan Green, Andrew Pepoy, Iñaki Miranda
One of the things I've appreciated most in what I've watched of the television series Once Upon a Time (aside from the family friendly nature of it) is that it played cleverly with old stories I was entirely familiar with. At its best, Fables does precisely the same.

In this volume the reader is introduced to the different backstories of Snow White and her sister Rose Red. At the same time, some little twists and curious elements in the story are explained such as why Wilbur has been haunting Snow and Red.

Again another great continuation of the series, with just enough twists and turns to keep this reader hooked in. The characters, the writing and all manner of different things work together to keep me wanting to read on. At least to the end of the arc...
