All nine issues of the long awaited crossover between Vertigo's two popular series Fables and Jack of Fables are collected here.

The world of Fables is introduced to a whole new set of characters...The Literals. The Literals are characters that embody, literally, different literary genres such as Mystery, Comedy and Romance. One of The Literals goes by the name The Storymaker, one who can vanquish the world of Fables with one stroke of his pen.

When Jack discovers the existence of The Literals and their leader Kevin Thorn aka The Storymaker, Jack must leave his own book and crossover to the world of Fables to warn Fabletown about Kevin Thorn. Does the The Storymaker plan to close the book on the Fables universe once and for all?

The Great Fables Crossover features appearances from Fables favorites such as Snow White, Bigby Wolf, Rose Red, Jack Frost,
Beauty and The Beast.

Lots of action and drama. The Great Crossover was an epic! Advancing both the stories of the Fables and also that of Jack.

A bunch of self-referential crap that's unrelated to the main plot... probably written by someone with writer's block. As for the plot, "Duck Amuck" (and yes, that's a Merrie Melodies ref) did it better. Obviously, I'm not a fan of Jack. The one star is for the all too brief Beast v. Bigby fight.

Lots of payoff in this volume. Being a literature geek helps with following some of the gags and plotting. It's really meta... more so than usual, even. I had never given much thought as to why Jack talks to the audience, heh.

This will only bewilder you if you have not read at least some of the Fables and Jack of Fables graphic novel that preceded it. Still, a pretty good story though it appears to have nothing to do with the main plot of the Fables graphic novels. Crossovers in the comics biz usually mean the writer is running out to ideas. Could be the case here but I hope Willingham has more to say in the next graphic novel and gets the story back on track

A cross over between Fables and Jack of Fables graphic novels. It's nice to have them integrated again after the initial Jack spin off.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit but you do have to be sure to read the Jack of Fables series to get all the story. Again, I love Babe!

A nice intermingling of the Fables and Jack of Fables series. Quite nifty.

"They say that writer's block is really your own mind telling you your story doesn't work as planned and needs rethinking. Maybe serious reconstruction."
