Présentation de l'éditeur


For years, Snow White and Bigby Wolf's cubs have grown up knowing that one of them was destined for a much greater, more grave role amongst the Fables community. But no one knew how soon it would come.

When Snow and Bigby's cub Therese receives a Christmas gift from an unknown admirer, this red plastic boat magically takes her on a journey to a desolate place known as Toyland. Will Therese be their savior? Or their destroyer? FABLES VOL. 18: CUBS IN TOYLAND is the latest epic from New York Times best-selling author Bill Willingham's hit series FABLES, as the Bigby Wolf cubs learn that adventures in the land of misfit toys is much less fun than it sounds.

Also collected here are all the backup stories that feature Bufkin's exploits in the land of Oz, beautifully painted by Shaw McManus (CINDERELLA: FROM FABLETOWN WITH LOVE).

Ce tome fait suite à Inherit the wind (épisodes 108 à 113). Il contient les épisodes 114 à 123, tous écrits par Bill Willingham, parus en 2012.

Épisodes 114 à 121 (dessins de Mark Buckingham pour tous les épisodes, encrage de Steve Leialoha, aidé de Dan Green et Andrew Pepoy pour les épisodes 116 à 118) - Bigby et Winter (l'une de ses filles) sont restés dans le monde de North Wind. Dans leur chaumière, Blanche Neige s'occupe des autres rejetons et leur intime l'ordre d'aller ranger leur chambre. Therese se plaint auprès de sa mère qu'elle a hérité d'un jouet de garçon : un bateau en plastique, un jouet de bain. Les autres Fables commencent à envisager de se réinstaller à New York. Ils découvrent, dans la demeure de leur choix, une prisonnière du nom de Leigh Duglas, et un prisonnier du nom de Verian Holt. Le lendemain, les 6 louveteaux (enfants de Bigby) profitent de la neige pour aller jouer dehors. Therese s'aventure un peu plus loin et découvre un tigre mécanique en taille réelle grippé par la rouille : Lord Mountbatten. Elle suit les conseils de son bateau jouet qui lui demande de le remettre à l'eau et s'embarque pour aller découvrir un nouveau monde. Blanche Neige finit par s'inquiéter de ne pas la voir revenir.

Il s'agit donc du deuxième de tome de suite essentiellement consacré aux enfants de Blanche Neige et Bigby.

...in far Mattagonia, a happily never after... 3 février 2013
Par H. Bala - Publié sur Amazon.com

Fairy tales don't always have happy endings. Sometimes they break your heart. If I weren't already gobsmacked by Willingham's storytelling this arc would've done the trick. FABLES Vol. 18: CUBS IN TOYLAND collects issues #114-123. This trade offers the "Cubs in Toyland" arc, narrated in eight chapters, as well as the two-parter "The Destiny Game." Not included are the back-up stories featuring the winged blue monkey Bufkin.

With one part of Ambrose's prophesy concerning the fates of the Wolf cubs already fulfilled (that of Winter's becoming the next North Wind), you wouldn't have blamed Willingham if he'd eased off some. Instead, "Cubs in Toyland" fleshes out two more stages of the prophesy. Even as Winter undergoes rigorous training as the new North Wind, Therese is consumed with her unseemly new toy, unseemly because a toyboat makes for a peculiar plaything for a girl. Therese claims that the toyboat (say "toyboat" ten times, I dare you) insists that she only play with it and no other toy, except that her mom, Snow White, scoffs at this. One early morning Therese and her toyboat - whose name is Mr. Steampuddle - go out for a walk, in search of a trickle, just a trickle, of water.

FABLES is the gift that keeps on giving. Willingham and artists Mark Buckingham and Steve Leialoha deliver so very consistently. "Cubs in Toyland" is possibly FABLES's most gutwrenching arc. Me, my favorite characters in this series are the Wolf family, and so I was even more invested in reading this story. Willingham lends gravitas and a foreboding atmosphere from jump. Early indications suggested that another bit of Ambrose's prophesy is about to come to fruition. Therese's wandering takes her to a faraway land, to Discardia, a desolate realm awaiting its queen and where broken toys long to be made whole again. Therese hesitantly steps towards her destiny. All is not as it seems.

In Wolf Valley, Therese's absence is soon noted, and search parties quickly dispatched. No one feels more badly than the oldest cub Darian who feels he was negligent in his safeguarding his missing sister. Off he goes on the back of a tick tock tiger on an improbable rescue mission.

This is fabulous stuff, and harrowing stuff, and, ultimately, sorrowful stuff. Willingham has never been so good as he is here in sparking an emotional connection from the reader (or from me, anyway). In terms of further plot details, I'll briefly mention that this arc also touches on the Fables' move to Castle Dark and Mrs. Sprat's deceitful reassimilation into the Fables community. Of the central arc itself I can't rave enough. It'll keep you up late, turning pages. Willingham imbues his characters with such depth and richness and he tells a story so well and is so inventive, I can't really see FABLES losing too much momentum going forward. Here, Willingham injects themes of childish petulance and deep loss and bittersweet redemption and even a whiff of the Arthurian myth. He paints Therese's Toyland as this seriously unsettling purgatory populated by sinister mangled toys. In this arc you will believe that a creepy Teddy Ruxpin lookalike can hold his own against a raging tiger.

"The Destiny Game" comprises the trade's last two issues and features the dark and brooding art of guest artist Gene Ha (remember him from TOP TEN?). This mini-arc tells an early tale of Bigby Wolf as he strives to thwart a horrifying destiny bestowed upon him by a mysterious woman under duress.

As a bonus, there are five pages of black & white character designs and preliminary art from Mark Buckingham.

A stronger entry this go round 9 février 2013
Par ChibiNeko - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
One of the things that has sort of bugged me about Fables is that at times you can tell that it's been running for a very long time and as such, has begun to fray at the edges and occasionally sag in the middle. It's starting to show it's age here and there, as all long running series inevitably do. That's why I was glad to see that we're finally starting to get some of the various plot points resolved that were brought up volumes ago. Most notably, the prophecy over Snow and Bigby's kids. Not all of the answers are given here, but we do have two names presumably checked off on the list.

And I'll warn readers ahead of time. If you aren't ready to watch young characters do some terrible things and have terrible things done to them, you should prepare yourself. It's not exactly Frank Miller bad, mind you, but I know that for some it's harder to watch bad things happen to children as opposed to adults.

I rather liked the story in this volume. It's sad and at times creepy to see what becomes of Therese. She really undergoes a lot in this story and while I can't say much more without giving some mondo spoilers away, I'm interested to see what this volume's plot will do as far as the Wolf family dynamics go. One Wolf child certainly has some explaining to do and I'm not certain that this specific person will go completely scot-free. On a side note, we do see some side mentions gearing up for future plot arcs. Fabletown is truly dead and gone, but there's the potential for new residency... maybe.

Art-wise, this is a bleak volume. There's some wonderfully surreal panels in the last third, but as the story here is bleak, the artwork needs to reflect this as well. It helps drive in the fact that something really is wrong in Toyland. I will say that the artwork in the side story "The Destiny Game" is much better if we're going to be comparing the two, but this is normally the case with side stories in the Fable-verse.

Overall this is good. It's giving me a bit of a fresh interest in the series, but I still don't know if this will be enough to fully bring back everyone. It's definitely worth checking out at the library, that's for certain.

An excellent Series 9 février 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
There are a few series that have continued to be excellent throughout their entire run and I expect to be excellent well into the future.

Fables is always interesting, full of twists and turns and excitement. Though the great Fables war was easily the best, this focuses on the children of Snow White and Bigby, the wolf. This is the kind of thing that Disney could never do. They would never be so brutal with their characters. They want happy endings, but the original fables, handed down through history, do not always have happy endings. Fables understands that. There are times when I get to the end of a plot and realize that it feels like an old story. Fables can be sweet and painful all in one moment, and this latest volume does both.

New York Times bestselling author, Bill Willingham delivers another great adventure in the Fables series. It was expected that Snow White and Bigby Wolf's cubs would be given an important role within the community, and it was as if they grew up overnight. What was totally unexpected was the fact that the job came sooner than anticipated. Snow and Therese receive a surprise Christmas gift from an unknown sender, and this magical gift of a red plastic boat takes them on a journey to Toyland. Who was the secret admirer, and will Toyland be saved, or destroyed? What lesson will the cubs learn on this mission? The author creates a fun-filled, mystical fantasy that entertains throughout, the characters are unique, and the story is exciting. This delightful adventure with its colorful illustrations is fascinating as we enter the land of misfit toys. Enjoyable, and highly recommended!

Grim and Beautiful 26 janvier 2013

One of the darkest and grimmest Fables yet. I can't really say much more without giving spoilers, but parents beware of this issue. This shows how good of a writer Bill Willingham is though. I thought it was some of the best Fables writing in a while. I should mention that this does not include the Oz tales as it says in the ads. Instead, you get the two-part arc of The Destiny Game. If you're a fan of Fables this will not disappoint you. It brings back the hard-hitting tales the comic use to have. And this one hits you hard.
