Fables Vol. 4: March of the Wooden Soldiers

When Little Red Riding Hood suddenly walks through the gate between this world and the lost Fable Homelands, she's welcomed as a miraculous survivor by nearly everyone - everyone except her old nemesis, Bigby Wolf, who smells spying and subversion more than survival. But will he be able to prove his case before disaster strikes? And how will it all affect Prince Charming's upstart campaign to become the new mayor of Fabletown?

I found this volume to be quite disappointing.

 I loved 'The Last Castle' back story, Boy Blue was not a character I really took much notice of but his story with Red Riding was really interesting.

 I do not like how Bigby is often drawn, his face doesn't seem to have any stand out features and I didn't like that much. I also did not care for the wooden soldier army story-line. I found it quite dull and so it has taken me ages to finish this volume as I just didn't really have the motivation to get through it. I felt this story arc could have been wrapped up much sooner and was unnecessarily dragged out.

 I do not care much for the slime ball Prince Charming running for election either. That guy is a serious creep, but I love that he's a creep.

 Really hope the next volume is better than this one.
