Fables : Animal Farm

Fables : Animal Farm by Bill WillinghamAfter a dreadful, unknow adversary invaded the different countries of Fairyland many of the inhabitants escaped to our world. Everyone who can pass for a human lives in Fabletown in the middle of New York while everyone else lives on The Farm in upstate New York.

Snow White, the deputy mayor of Fabletown, takes her sister Rose with her on the annual inspection to The Farm. When they arrive they find that the manager is gone and the animals are having meetings. It’s the start of a revolution and Goldilocks and the Baby Bear aren’t kids any more.

As with the last novel in the series Fables : Legends in Exile, I like this one a lot. It lets the well known characters from the fairy tales have whole new lives and adventures. As the title implies it also takes traits from the novel Animal Farm by George Orwell.

It’s fine reading this graphic novel without knowing the different stories that gets alluded to (and I’m sure I missed a few) ,but it’s even more fun when you catch many of the references.

I’m going to keep reading this series, it’s well worth my time.
