Once upon a time... we got the story of Jack of the Fables and his meteoric rise (and eventually fall) as a reclusive Hollywood billionaire. And that's just the first story. On top of that, we get another section in the lands of the Fables, with Boy Blue, Action Hero, keen on saving his lady love, willing to Vorpal Sword his way through anyone to get what he wants. And confirmation that the adversary is who we thought he was, plus the big How He Did It all along. Quite the crazy story.

I'm honestly quite impressed with how awesome Boy Blue has turned out to be in this story.

I really do like these bigger worldbuilding stories. Well worth the read.

Spoilery favorite images:



It's funny because they're all centuries old. We don't always get that, but from time to time.



So he's Jack the Horny. Why are so many Fables seemingly obsessed with sex? And is there anything preventing half Fables running around? I don't think I've seen such a thing.



SNICKER-SNACK! I love the Vorpal Sword. And the Witching Cloak. And really just Boy Blue in general in this section.



Oh Geppetto. I would never have pegged you as the Adversary, but the more we see, the more it makes perfect sense. And the more we see how it all came to be...



That Winter chick is going to be interesting, calling it now.



The Witching cloak is pretty cool! And Boy Blue is intense.



Important men only lie about important things.

That, is quite an interesting point.



It just keeps getting bigger! Especially looking forward to the next Fables tale: [b:Fables, Vol. 7: Arabian Nights|21327|Fables, Vol. 7 Arabian Nights (and Days)|Bill Willingham|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1327962799l/21327._SX50_.jpg|2542586].



Once again, Boy Blue is awesome. That is all. ( )

'Homelands' was satisfying, I didn't mind that the identity of the Adversary was who I expected it to be. There are times when you can build up a good surprise, and others you can't. If they had gone any other way I would have been irritated at the red herrings.

Boy Blue left Fabletown after the battle, stealing the Witching Cloak and the Vorpal Blade, and stalks the homelands seeking Red Riding Hood and the Adversary himself. This is our first real look at the Homelands other than flashbacks from when the Fables were escaping and it was a great blend of history and fantasy.

I love getting more back story. The further these graphic novels go on, the more fleshed out the setting and characters are. I know I keep saying it but it literally keeps getting better and better! Each installment is five star worthy!

Volume 6 opens up with Jack's adventures after leaving Fabletown in the previous volume, which includes a stint in Hollywood. This is an entertaining little story that is clearly a precursor for the spin-off series about Jack that followed shortly after this (and will probably be a fun read that I will try to get to after I'm done with the main Fables series). Most of the rest of the book is concerned with the other character that took off from Fabletown in Volume 5 -- Boy Blue, who returned to the Homelands in search of his love Red Riding Hood and to seek vengeance against the Adversary. Armed with potent magic tools, he is a one-man wrecking machine bent upon destroying many numbers of the Adversary's army. Back in Fabletown, Prince Charming and the Beast are strengthening their espionage efforts and gearing up for an eventual showdown with the Adversary.

Despite the notable absence of my favorite characters Snow and Bigby (who are both just given a random mention by other characters), I quite enjoyed this addition to the Fables story. We get to see more of the Homelands and we finally meet the Adversary, who is both more sly and more ruthless than one would have suspected. There are also some new and interesting characters introduced, including the Snow Queen and Mowgli, in addition to some well-established characters becoming even further developed, such as Boy Blue, Prince Charming, and the Beast. (Beauty, however, remains fairly bland, with her presence being shown in a few scenes without her actually saying or doing anything.) This book is a lot more like an action or spy novel than the previous volumes and even though those aren't necessarily my favorite genres, Willingham did such a good job keeping up with the character development side of things that I was still interested to keep reading and seeing what would happen to these folks next.

Because I've neglected to mention the illustrations side of Fables in my more recent reviews, I'd like to point out these continue to be top-notch. The scenes and characters are all done in a fairly realistic style, even with all the fantastical elements. I love the use of backgrounds and other small details to indicate which story we are in -- for instance, chopped logs running in a sidebar when in Geppetto's cottage, film strip banners for the opening title of each of Jack's Hollywood chapters, and a caged bluebird atop each page when Boy Blue is in captivity, to name a few.
