Fables Vol. 3: Storybook Love

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?

I did like this volume though the art style changes a lot from story arc to story arc and that is something I guess I shall have to get used to.

The story arc is really interesting, it explores more of the Fable's story - the reader learns more of Bluebeard, Snow White and Bigby, Prince Charming, and many other characters. Bigby and Snow White's connection is explored and it is explained why Bigby has such a pull towards snow. It was pretty interesting.

 The ending was brilliant though. I can't wait to see how that develops. I hope there is a lot more of Lan Medina's art though, as its the best one in my opinion. I also love the little side stories about minor characters that make an appearance. Just adds another layer to the story and makes it a lot more interesting. I don't feel like I have even met everybody yet let alone know much about their backstories so I can't wait to read more.
