Tourists of the world unite! If you've ever craved a guided tour of Fabletown's secret Manhattan location, prepare to be voraciously satiated. Pinnochio has a field day taking a certain VIP around the city. And exactly which Fabletown denizens are no longer active (dead, alive or otherwise) just might shock you into a comic book coma. Also in this volume, you'll find the 4-part story featuring Freddy and Mouse, two local rogues who just want to get along and perhaps turn a bit of profit in the post-war, topsy-turvy world. Meanwhile, in Fabletown, a new political group forms called the Society of Seconds, and what they want doesn't seem very reasonable at all.

Solid graphic novel with an interesting and fairly fresh storyverse (Jasper Fforde does something similar with his Nursery Crimes novels).

Dark is right. The consequences of the last war are dire as a new (seemingly way over-powered) bad guy is unleashed and the next promising arc begins. I was glad for the much lighter Mowgli short at the end.

Excellent series, following the evolution of fairytales/"fables" through time into the present. A must-read for any graphic novel enthusiast!

It's definitely a transition work between the "great war" story and the next threat to Fabletown, but even so it makes for fine reading (and the art, as usual, is fantastic!)
