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. 8: Wolves - Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha, Shawn McManus, Andrew Pepoy
Fables: Wolves is the book where Bigby returns and this lifts everything to another level. I've mentioned before that this series has the strength of being incredibly versatile in what genres it moves between. This book captures on that versatility and expands the series. A solution to Bigby's issues is found, a war is potentially stopped in the Fablelands and Cinderella goes on an important mission up a beanstalk.

I have very little to add to the general idea conveyed of the series in my other previous reviews. So, because of that, I shall leave this a short two paragraph review. I definitely recommend checking out these graphic novels for their combination of humour, adult themes (well maybe not so much), fairytales, fantasy, adventure, romance and dealing with deep issues. In this volume the idea of fatherhood and dealing with duty are observed in regards to Bigby Wolf and it all turns out very interesting in the end. Perhaps not the best addition to the series but a typically strong addition and recommendable.
