"The Great Fables Crossover" part 7 of 9! Jack Horner, meet Jack Frost. But wait a minute! Didn't we already establish that Jack Horner was Jack Frost? Concerning the nature of his craft, Tom Clancy once opined that the "difference between fiction and reality is that fiction has to make sense." If this is so, how do we explain Jack being put in charge of the Farm and all of Fablekind? How do we explain Jack being allowed to babysit Bigby and Snow's cubs? How does that make sense? We here at Fables headquarters can only come to one conclusion: as impossible as it may seem, Fables isn't fiction, it's real.

    I'm also enjoying the silly dynamic between the human Fables and animal Fables on the Farm lately. Silly is the name of the game when it comes to this issue, except when Rose is involved. I like where Bill Willingham and Matthew Sturges are taking her character. I'm just not sure I like that Jack had to be so heavily involved in her downward spiral. Overall, there are bits and pieces of this issue I liked quite a bit. It's a shame the larger crossover had to get in their way. Read Full Review
