La première histoire est illustrée par Steve Leialoha (tout seul comme un grand). Il s'agit de l'encreur attitré de Mark Buckingham dans la série Fables. Il a eu le temps de faire un travail soigné, agréable à regarder, mais parfois trop proche de celui de Buckingham. Dans cette partie, Jack se retrouve forcé d'attendre en compagnie de quelques Fables que les recherches perdent en intensité pour pouvoir prendre la fuite. Il raconte donc à ses compagnons d'infortune (Alice, Pecos Bill et John Henry) comment il a acquis pendant quelques mois les pouvoirs de Lumi (Ice Queen), avant qu'elle ne devienne le bras armé de l'Adversaire. Il s'agit d'une histoire agréable à lire qui aurait très bien pu trouver sa place dans la série Fables comme intermède. Et c'est là que le bas blesse : pourquoi caser une telle histoire dans la série de Jack si elle ne comporte pas d'éléments qui la mette à part de la série mère ?
La deuxième partie nous ramène au temps présent. Jack a pu forcer les rondes des gardiens du village de Golden Boughs Retirement et il part chercher fortune à Las Vegas avec l'aide de Gary l'incarnation de la réification (pathetic fallacy). Jack a tôt fait de se retrouver marié à l'héritière d'un propriétaire de casinos.Lire la suite ›

My fear in starting to read the Jack series was that Jack was by far my least favorite major character in the Fables series. The first Jack book was a complete delight partly because Jack was overshadowed by the introduction of a whole new group of Fables. But this book puts him far more front and forward, and as a result the book suffers (at least for me).
The volume is broken into two stories of unequal length. The first concerns his retelling of his earlier adventures as Jack Frost. The second, longer, and better part dealt with Jack's adventures in Las Vegas, as he accidentally marries the daughter of a casino owner and then gets involved in the intrigues that result from the vendetta another Fable -- Lady Luck herself -- has against the family he has married into. As always with the Fables books, the interest lies less with the overall story with the myriad of little details. And Gary the Pathetic Fallacy (my brother wrote his doctoral dissertation on the personification of nature in literature, which is one guise of the Pathetic Fallacy) is back, who struggles throughout the story with his mannikin girlfriend.
All in all I thoroughly enjoyed this. I have not bought the individual issues that make up the next volume, but I eagerly look forward to purchasing the next collection in the series.
This time we start with Jack just after the great escape where he meets up with three other new Fables who have been wandering on their own and they decide to go high in the mountains to avoid recapture from the Golden Boughs staff. The first two issues have them sitting around a fire, while Jack reminisces to keep them all warm by telling them of the time he was Jack Frost. Here we get to see The Snow Queen again and find out how she turned evil. I enjoyed this story and there is a reveal about Jack at the end that we can, hopefully, expect to come into play sometime in a future edition.
The rest of the book is devoted to the title story in which Jack meets up with Gary, whom I've grown fond of, and who has become Jack's sidekick. With the help of Gary's talent they set off for Las Vegas and Jack makes his fortune all over again but little does he know that behind the Vegas scene is the Fable Lady Luck, who brings luck with her wherever she goes but at a price, sucking the luck out of the brains of Vegas' most lucky players. What follows is Jack's typical near death escapades as he tries to beat Lady Luck at her own game and keep his Vegas empire. Lady Luck was a delightful evil character and the ending hints she may show up again. Gary adds tons of humour to the plot, his power is to animate inanimate objects, and he spends the story accompanied by a mannequin named Noelle he has grown fond of.
Generally just a couple of fun stories though we do have some characters and loose ends that are left dangling as possible entries into the plot further down the line. Time to order Volume 3 from the library!
The second story is about Jack going to Vegas. He decides to go to Vegas to take advantage of Gary's powers (Gary is able to bring inanimate objects into life and make them do what he wants, for example, making a slot machine give him some quarters to pay for Jack's drinks). What ends up happening in Vegas is a really cool story. The story has as its main villain, Lady Luck. The character is a very attractive woman that eats brains to suck the luck of other people. She and Jack cross paths and a lot of cool things happen. A really good story arc, I specially like the little side story involving Aubrey, a nerd that has a lucky horseshoe. The comic gives us snippets of his blog here and there, and every entry is hilarious.
Overall, this is a great volume in Jack of Fables. It has a very different feel to Fables, being not so serious and very funny. I like it a lot.
