Really liked this volume. Expands on Bigby's relationship with his father and also talks about his siblings. The companion stories are also quite fun. ( )

[b:Fables, Vol. 9: Sons of Empire|158988|Fables, Vol. 9 Sons of Empire|Bill Willingham|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1375396700l/158988._SX50_.jpg|153455]. The calm before the storm. It's a number of somewhat lighter tales (relatively speaking!) showing how both sides are preparing to strike back.

We get a bit more detail on Frau Totenkinder--who turns out to be even more than we thought--and Ambrose/Flycatcher, who seems to have quite the backstory. And of course, the Wolf clan. They're always a lot of fun.

A good story. A nice breather.

Onwards!

Some of my favorite scenes (spoilers):



The idea that Hansel is on the side of the Adversary is ... of course he is. Especially given that Frau Totenkinder is who she is.



It's on one hand amazing that the average person doesn't know. But I guess that's entirely the point of the thing.



Man, Fly's had a rough life. Stress? Frog. Wife? Dead. Family? Dead. Oof.



The idea of curses carrying on was one we saw before with Briar Rose, but this makes it all the better. Three haircuts a day. And she's making bank on it. Pretty cool.



A silly little version of the Three Blind Mice. It works.



If you stay up to catch Santa, you can have one true answer instead of your presents. I really like that idea. And you know, that's actually a really good way that Santa works. Magic.



Santa's gift for Fly: one last kiss.

Man. Right in the feels. He's got quite a story.



You know. Geppetto really is kind of a terrible father figure. I feel bad for how Pinocchio has been stuck there.



Heh. Glasshole. Also the idea that everyone rhymes to magic mirror, but you don't actually *have* to, it just likes it? That's funny.



All that before he was fifteen. Man Charming is morally all over the place. He tries to do good, but ... he is who he is. ( )

Nifty. ( )

The Christmas stories were pleasant and the Fan Question Mini-stories were an interesting idea, but overall, the book felt like it was biding time until the plot moves again. ( )

This story sets up a lot of framework for what's coming - I haven't read ahead, I just know that 'Fables' has a very, very long way to go and I've gotten the hang of Willingham's foreshadowing.

The 'Sons of Empire' arc introduces readers to the Empire's plans for revenge on Fabletown and the potential conquest of the mundy world. Well, at least the first draft. Nothing will play out that way, it'll be worse. It also takes time to introduce a few new prominent players, most importantly Hansel, who's mania for witch-hunting got him exiled from Fabletown and makes him a perfect tool for the Empire.

'Father and Son' has Bigby and his father, the North Wind, come to an understanding. It's not much, but they're both still alive and on the same side.

There were some great extras, including an issue of short stories answering reader questions about minor characters and loose threads, and even an appearance from Santa Claus.

This series is phenomenal. I don't know when I'll get to the rest of it, but I'll keep my eyes open.

This volume marks my 20th anniversary as a professional comic artist, which seems like the perfect moment to thank those who were with me at the beginning. My old Stoke gang: Dribbs, Yok, Drew, Chris Ski and especially Shane Oakley and Matt Brooker. The Best of Friends. The Best of Times. This is also for Neil Gaiman. The Best of Best Men.

— Mark Buckingham
This volume is dedicated to Steve Graves, treasured old ghost.
