Fables Volume 10: The Good Prince by Bill Willingham

The Good PrinceDon’t hold me to it because perhaps I overlooked a demise of a Fable or two in the 228 pages, but this may be the first in the series where we don’t flat wipe out 20 of them during the duration of the graphic novel. Fables Volume 10: The Good Prince centers around Flycatcher, the janitor prince, regaining his memory of the execution of his family. With the assistance of the Forsworn Knight and other Fable Ghosts, Flycatcher makes his way back into the Homelands where he must defeat the Adversaries forces in order to create a sanctuary for the Fables and provide a strategic advantage for Fabletown in the upcoming war.

I enjoyed this volume because he was a good prince. It was nice for once to wear rose color glasses and live in a world for awhile where peaceful happy endings existed. Sometimes you just need that.
