Fables, Vol. 7: Arabian Nights Reviews

  • James DeSantis

    Fables is finally clicking with me. This volume was filled with a lot of great moments.

    The stuff in fabletown is all about political affairs and the main thing is about a nation of people, Arabian, and how they will conflict with ideas that are placed in Fabletown. On the flipside we get a little bit more information on the farm, what's happening with snow white, red, and boy blue and of course the little kids. Last but not least we have a two issue story of one of Geppetto creations, or two of

    The stuff in fabletown is all about political affairs and the main thing is about a nation of people, Arabian, and how they will conflict with ideas that are placed in Fabletown. On the flipside we get a little bit more information on the farm, what's happening with snow white, red, and boy blue and of course the little kids. Last but not least we have a two issue story of one of Geppetto creations, or two of them, falling in love and wanting to become human. It sounds silly but by the end...wow.

    Good: Loved the very end. It was powerful, scary, and well done. The fabletown political stuff was solid, interesting, and pretty entertaining. I also loved anything to do with Snow White's children as they are all interesting and fun.

    Bad: Not enough boy blue!

    Overall this was another great entry. While not AS good as the last it's still pretty damn high up there. I want more!

    I really like how this series explores every perspective, both good and bad. It was interesting to see the Adversary start to conquer the Arabian Fable lands once all the European lands were conquered. It was cool to see all the Arabian characters and beasts that were introduced. What I really liked was near the end where the two wooden people fell in love and journeyed home to become real so they could start a family together. However a twist of fate makes them do the unthinkable.

    I love that Sinbad comes to visit Fable town and brings his Vizier and a Genni with him. I love the Arabian Nights and it's nice to see a little bit of that. It becomes a political thriller and Prince Charming actually makes some good decisions. The witch from Hansel and Gretel is pretty awesome in each story too. You don't want to cross her. She is powerful and read.

    The first 3 chapters about about the Arabian story line. The final chapters are about some wooden soldiers under the adversary. They have reached the Arabian party of the myth world and it is a fierce battle. We see why the soldiers are so good. The don't get a hurt being wood. I wasn't really into until until the end when we see what is going on.

    This continues to be a great, every expanding story. I really enjoy this one. I'll be going on.

    They say that too many cooks spoil the broth. I would say that, sometimes, it's too many ingredients that spoil it.

    fell a little flat for me. I was excited when Willingham started including characters from the

    world. But the storyline involving them wasn't all that captivating. Also, one of the characters kept calling Sinbad, supposedly the head of this royal retinue, "sirrah." I gathered that he meant it as a term of honor, but I couldn't get over the fact that, i

    fell a little flat for me. I was excited when Willingham started including characters from the

    world. But the storyline involving them wasn't all that captivating. Also, one of the characters kept calling Sinbad, supposedly the head of this royal retinue, "sirrah." I gathered that he meant it as a term of honor, but I couldn't get over the fact that, in English, it has a negative connotation. If what they're saying in Arabic is going to be translated into English, then shouldn't that term be translated, too?

    The one thing I will say is that Frau Totenkinder is pretty ossom. She's the wicked witch of "Hansel and Gretl" fame. Her name is German for "dead children," and she's ossomly creepy, and Willingham uses her well.

    There was a vaguely interesting secondary plotline involving a wooden soldier from the Adversary's armies. Rodney, a wooden soldier, falls in love with June, a wooden "medic" -- she repairs damaged wooden soldiers' limbs. Together, they travel to find Geppetto and ask him to turn them into flesh so that they can marry and raise children. It's a sweet, little love story, and a reminder that the soldiers in the enemy's army are people, too, with cares and lives disturbingly similar to ours.

    It's a nice aside, but I still hope that the next volume gets back to top form again.

    So basically: Frau Totenkinder is a boss. Assistant deputy mayor Beauty is the epitome of girl power. And the wooden are all very messed up.

    Overall, this volume of

    fell a little flat with me. Hope they step it up in the next one!
