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. 5: The Mean Seasons - Tony Aikins, Jimmy Palmiotti, Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha, Bill Willingham
Following on from the battle aftermath of the previous volume, Fables: The Mean Seasons calms everything down with a slightly different tone. Yet, this compelling fractured fairytale adventure - with all its focus on the modern and society through the use of age old 'fable' characters - takes some interesting twists in this volume which keep the overall story moving forward strongly.

In Fabletown the election runs its course and as Prince Charming becomes mayor Bigby and Snow White stand down from their positions, allowing Beauty and Beast to step into their roles; Snow White's pregnancy comes to full term and she gives birth to some interesting children; and lastly there are interesting insinuations about what darkness is infiltrating the characters of Fabletown.

All in all another strong addition to the series. Unfortunately, do to the very nature of this being a work as part of a whole series there is little I can say about one individual effort in this series but it is fine nonetheless. I'd recommend getting into this series if any of my previous reviews have piqued your particular interest.
