Graphic Novel Review of Storybook Love, Fables Vol. 3 by Bill Willingham

Synopsis: "In the Fables' world, there isn't a lot of happily-ever-after to go around. As refugees from the lands of make-believe, the Fables have been driven from their storybook realms and forced to blend in with our gritty, mundane reality.

But that doesn't mean they don't have any room for romance—or the pain, betrayal and jealous rage that go along with it. In fact, love may be blooming between two of the most hard-bitten, no-nonsense Fables around. But are they destined for happiness— or a quick and untimely death?"

My Review: I found the story line to this volume to be interesting, it didn't feel as if it involved as much literary references though. Also the illustrations didn't appeal to me, I think it was still the same illustrators but the style just didn't feel the same to me. I did however like the several different story lines that were occurring, but I much preferred the one featuring Bigby and Snow White. I am starting to see some of the alliances and back alley deals and am curious to see what happens in the following volumes.
My Rating: I am enjoying the development of the characters and the fact that there is a little more plot occurring. I did find the few short issues that didn't seem to really pertain to the main story of the volume a little odd. I give it a rating of Two Paws and a Stump Wag.


  1. I don't really like the art in the Fables series either. I don't know what it is.... just not my style I guess. The cover of volume one is my least favorite. I would never have picked that up in the bookstore.

    1. I agree with you, I probably would have never picked this series up at a store on a whim, but because it was recommended to me I did start reading it. Art aside though I am rather enjoying this series.
