Présentation de l'éditeur

All nine issues of the long awaited crossover between Vertigo's two popular series Fables and Jack of Fables are collected here.

The world of Fables is introduced to a whole new set of characters...The Literals. The Literals are characters that embody, literally, different literary genres such as Mystery, Comedy and Romance. One of The Literals goes by the name The Storymaker, one who can vanquish the world of Fables with one stroke of his pen.

When Jack discovers the existence of The Literals and their leader Kevin Thorn aka The Storymaker, Jack must leave his own book and crossover to the world of Fables to warn Fabletown about Kevin Thorn. Does the The Storymaker plan to close the book on the Fables universe once and for all?

The Great Fables Crossover features appearances from Fables favorites such as Snow White, Bigby Wolf, Rose Red, Jack Frost,
Beauty and The Beast.

Ce tome constitue un croisement (crossover) entre 2 séries ; il se déroule après Fables 12: The Dark Ages et après Jack of Fables: The Big Book of War. Il comprend les épisodes 83 à 85 de la série Fables, 33 à 35 de la série Jack of Fables et les 3 épisodes de la minisérie "The Literals".

Depuis le début des aventures en solo de Jack Horner, les Literals se sont invités dans l'univers des Fables avec un arbre généalogique un peu compliqué qui a eu pour conséquence que Jack a couché avec ses demi-soeurs. Or Kevin Thorne, le plus puissant de tous les Literals, a décidé de mettre un terme à ses créations (tous les personnages des Fables, et peut être même toute la réalité telle que nous la connaissons) qui ont échappé à son contrôle pour prendre une autonomie et des chemins qu'il réprouve.

Il n' pas vraiment choisi le meilleur moment pour se manifester car les Fables se sont tous réfugiés à la Ferme suite à la destruction de leur quartier de New York. Et Jack se retrouve confronté à l'un de ses fils qui exige de savoir pourquoi il l'a abandonné. Une partie des animaux de la ferme pense avoir aperçu la réincarnation de Boy Blue, revenu d'entre les morts.

Ce tome est à réserver aux initiés.

I adore the Fables series and love spending time with these characters, with this writer, and with the talented crew of artists.

But...I just barely tolerated this story arc.

This is a long-winded and tiresome series of books. The tone isn't wry. It is leaden. Lots of flat jokes.

The basic idea is that Jack wanders back into the world of the New York fables as things are turned upside down by the Literals. The Literals are characters -- Writer's Block, Pathetic Fallacy, etc. -- that personify the writing process. (There's a character named Humor who looks like Groucho Marx and who runs around holding a rubber chicken. Because that's how you personify the prose genre of Humor. No kidding.)

I'd be fine with the temporary insertion of allegorical characters if that yielded something vital about the nature of the Fables universe. Or if they pushed the stories forward of the Farm Fables or of the ex-Manhattan Fables. Instead, the whole thing struck me as being a hot mess. A very long hot mess. A hot mess with limited character development. A hot mess with a lot of half-baked meta-comics ideas.

The art is still great!

Now if you love the character of Jack of Fables, you'll probably enjoy this. This principally a Jack story (with some nice moments for Rose Red and Stinky.)

I figure you can skip this thing and move on with the Fables series without losing a whole lot. Do you really need another crossover?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing 2009 nine-issue Fables crossover descends into tiresome metafiction 15 février 2010
Par K. W. Schreiter - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This attractively priced trade paperback collects all nine issues of "The Great Fables Crossover" that was originally published in single comic book form between May and July 2009. The story involved three titles: the acclaimed "Fables" title, its spinoff "Jack of Fables", plus a three-issue miniseries "The Literals". I enjoyed the first four trade paperbacks in this series but started to lose interest by the sixth volume. DC/Vertigo's promotion of this crossover inspired me to revisit this series by buying these individual issues as they were released. Those unfamiliar with the Fables universe should read reviews of these first few TPBs for an introduction.
The crossover centers on Kevin Thorn, an omnipotent writer who can destroy and recreate the universe simply by writing in his special book with his special pen. Besides familiar Fables like Snow White, Bigby Wolf, Jack and Rose Red (plus dozens of anthropomorphic animals and household items), a new race of beings appear - the Literals. These include the Genres, physical manifestations like "Science Fiction", "Western" and "Comedy" that aid Thorn with his re-creation. Jack has learned of Thorn's threat, and returns to the Farm with the news, where he is met by his long lost son. A band of Fables led by Snow White and Bigby then pursue Thorn and his Genres to prevent the imminent apocalypse.
Willingham smashes the fourth wall so much that it becomes tiresome. Much is made of Jack leaving his eponymous spin-off for the original title, and the disappointing narrative is overwhelmed by its self-referential metafiction. At least the artwork is strong as in the rest of the series, and Amazon's price of $12.25 for 224 pages seems like a great deal, less than half of the original $2.99/issue cover price. Hardcore fans of the series will probably enjoy this volume, but as a casual fan I was disappointed.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 More for fans of Jack of Fables than Fables fans 6 juillet 2010
Par Tyler R Ward - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The Great Fables Crossover spans three titles- Fables, Jack of Fables, and The Literals (a mini series released to complete the crossover)- so it is indeed a Crossover. It does star Fables (perennial favorites Bigby and Snow are more at the forefront here than they have been recently). But I'd hesitate to call it Great.

To summarize where we are at the start of this (minor spoilers to follow)- the characters of both ongoing books have been ousted from their homes- Jack and co. from Golden Boughs, destroyed in the battle with Bookburner, and the Fables are up at the Farm following the collapse of the Woodland building by Mr. Dark's evil magics. Kevin Thorne, a longtime background character in the Fables book, was revealed to be one of the Literals- embodiments of literary devises- and an important one at that, the embodiment of storytelling itself. He's decided his creations- the Fables/the universe?- has gotten out of control and he's going to end it all and start over. The crossover begins with Jack calling the Fables for help, and they dispatch Snow and Bigby to head out west and investigate Jack's claims. When they arrive Jack leaves in a huff and heads to the Farm (and the main Fables book), leaving Snow and Bigby (and the Jack of Fables supporting cast) to deal with the Literals.

This swapping is probably my favorite element of the crossover. Snow and Bigby are out of their element in Jack's book, and Jack's been apart from the main Fables for so long that there are a lot of interesting character beats to be found.

I'm not a big fan of the Literals themselves- I've never really loved the idea, and this storyline has been building in Jack of Fables for a really long time (and, in my mind, knocking a lot of the fun out of that book , somewhere around the Americana story, as the Literals came more and more to the forefront of the action). The biggest problem with this crossover is that it's really a Jack of Fables story and not a Fables story at all. It's fun to watch Jack wreck a bit of mayhem at the farm, but there's very little advancement to any of the Fables plot lines or characters- the exceptions being some more development of Stinky the Badger and his obsession with Blue's return and a bit more seeding of Grimble being a more important member of Fabletown- that's it. Everything else remains pretty status quo from the end of the last volume. Conversely, the Jack of Fables book is in a completely different place (one I'm more excited to read about than I have in some time).

A word on the art- all very strong. Mark Buckingham draws four of the nine chapters, and Jack of Fables artists Tony Akins and Russ Braun split the rest. Mark Buckingham remains a genius and the other artists' styles aren't too divergent to be distracting.

All in all, this is a pretty good volume of Jack of Fables and a sub-par volume of Fables. If you've been following Jack of Fables, you'll want to pick this up. If you're a Fables fan who dislikes the Jack book, you may want to consider skipping this.
The 3.5 out of 5 stars it has now is an accurate assessment.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 The Series is Great - But not the "Crossover" 16 février 2011
Par Scott - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I've been a fan of "Fables" since issue #1, but this is a complete waste of time. Go from Volume 12 directly into Volume 14 "Witches". NOTHING in this crossover tale has any impact on the overall Fables storyline, so you won't be missing anything. The "big bad" is a Literal who can erase the universe with a sentence. (Literals are human characterizations of literary terms like "revision", "writer's block", and "deus ex machina" - and yes, its as stupid as it sounds. The Endless they ain't.) With an Adversary so omnipotent, of course you have to make up reasons why he just doesn't destroy everything on the first page - and its all nonsense and explosions from there.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a Marketing Stunt - It's 100% Jack of Fables 14 avril 2010
Par Shambalagala - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is the continuation and end of the Jack of Fables story thus far. It has nothing at all to do with the Fables universe and is intended to get Fables readers interested in buying another title - one that I think is far below the standards of Fables. There is no mention of Mr. Dark or any of the plot lines you were following in Fables #12. Instead, Bigby and Snow ride along with Jack on the final leg of his story. How disappointing. I had given up on Jack of Fables because I thought the storyline with the literals was weak and actually made the Fables universe less appealing.

The literals are personified literary terms. What terms get personified is totally arbitrary. It would have made sense for The Pathetic Fallacy to have created them all at some point, but the author missed this chance at an explanation. Instead, we have random selected literary personifications walking around, and this random guy, Kevin, basically acting as their god, able to write anything into existence. This power throws the whole Fables universe out of balance, and basically nothing matters anymore because Kevin can just rewrite anything. The authors would have done better to leave the literals out of the story completely and expand on the idea from mystical tradition and used to perfection in the Sandman that it is human's belief in Fables that give them power.

My recommendation - if you're not a big Jack of Fables fan, skip this. Fables fans could go from #12 to #14 without missing a thing.
