Fables Volume 9: Sons of Empire by Bill Willingham

Fables Volume 9: Son of EmpireFables Volume 9: Sons of Empire, by Bill Willingham, contains several stories as the Fables face an inevitable war against the Adversary. The Adversary, who is still keeping his identity hidden from masses of the Homeland, calls a meeting with his highest-ranking officials to plan the best strategy to not only defeat the Fables but also the mundane along with them. We also learn the back-story of Hansel and Gretel. Let’s just say not the sibling love that we are use to in other stories.

Another main story is Bigby and Snow taking the cubs to celebrate Christmas with Grandpa North Wind. Then at the end there are a handful of short humorous stories answering burning questions up to this point. As with all the past volumes, 5 out of 5 stars for the illustrations.
