    1 thought on “Jack of Fables, Vol. 9: The End”

    1. Don't get me wrong here. I love the Fables series. I'm a missionary for them. I use them like a gateway drug to get non-comic people into comics. I really enjoyed this spinoff series too up to a point. Specifically up to about book six in this series when it had a crossover with the main fables storyline and brought a series of lovely plot arcs to good resolution. (Warning here. I'm going to spoil some stuff at the end.)But after that I trailed off. But recently, when I saw there was an end to t [...]

    2. The finale spinoff to the FABLE series doesn't really measure up to the quality of the earlier graphic novels. There are some nice tie ins to main and sub characters but it's all pretty basic without any innovative twists. The Vegas kid who married the mannequin was a very nice touch but it wasn't mined for all of its potential and therefore a letdown. The Raven spirit bird was the best sub character. The end was very Shakespearean and the author admits it and contrary to what claim I doubt Shak [...]

    3. The first six volumes of this spin-off series were fun, but the last three were really bad. I don't know what was supposed to be fun at all about this last volume. Bad things happen to everyone I like, why is that fun? I think that the one character I don't care about at all may have survived. And Babe, of course, that would have been an true mistake. The issue of Jack being a literal was never addressed, or being related to the Page sisters, so what was the point of introducing that? I don't ev [...]

    4. "We've painted ourselves into a corner, storytelling-wise." "Yeah. Plus, I'm kind of bored with this now. What should we do?""I have the BEST IDEA EVER."Dudes. This was a waste of my time.

    5. What a total cop-out. This series was fairly amusing (although not as good as Fables) but the last two volumes were not as good as the rest. The ending was disappointing, (view spoiler)[ seeing as how everybody died for no good reason at all. It was as if the writers just really got tired of the story and hated the characters(hide spoiler)]. The only clever part of the story was when (view spoiler)[ all the manifestations of the devil came to collect Jack's soul after he was dead, and his ghost [...]

    6. The ending of this series is an exemplar of terrible writing. Bad enough that I suggest no one should read "Jack of Fables," and I might go as far as to extend this to the entirety of "Fables" and the other spinoffs (the spy mode of Cinderella became predictable within the first story line).Much like grade school, the authors apparently got bored with things and decided 'hell with it! Let's just blow everybody up!' And they did. They killed every character I had been mildly enchanted with, happi [...]

    7. Blahblah blah.That's how I feel.Children can we gather around and just pretend that Jack of Fables ended with the Great Fable Crossover? Please for the children!In the end Jack seems to have lost it's vision. As a series I was impressed as it made a series with a Fable I was not in love with that at times was really really good.Bring on Cinderella volumese Jack is thankfully done!

    8. It sort of amazes me this series made it to 50 issues. It just wasn't that good to be honest. The main character was unlikeable and the stories were mostly comedy, but the comedy wasn't all that funny. The ending waswell, it sure was a true ending, I'll give them that. This series just seemed to flounder the entire time and never truly got going. Fables was great, and this was the opposite of great. I mean that in general for the entire series. There are a few Jack of Fables issues that tie dire [...]

    9. Overall, I have to say that Jack of Fables isn't really worth hunting down for Fables fans unless you're a true aficionado. There were some quality stories in the series, Americana being the best one, but overall the series was just ok and the events don't have that great of an effect on the main series. Fables Vol. 13, the Great Fables Crossover, won't make a whole lot of sense without reading Jack of Fables, because it's mostly based on events from Jack's series. And Americana does introduce t [...]

    10. Jack finisce. Lutto. E' forse il riassunto più efficace per la mattanza dell'ultimo episodio. Spettacolare. Nelle ultime pagine dello spinoff (sul personaggio) più fico degli ultimi anni ci lasciano le penne tutti, ma proprio tutti, dalle sorelle Page, all'uovo parlante, al figlio e padre Jack, a John il perfido. Lo scontro finale vede convergere Jack Frost e un nutrito manipolo di fiabe nell'antro dell'ormai drago Jack Hornet. Per Jack Frost e il suo fido gufo è solo l'ultima avventura prima [...]

    11. It's over!If you read all og the Jack books in order to read the "great" (not so) Crossover event and then decided you couldn't take one more Jack story, I understand. However, I am glad that I finished the series, otherwise trudging through those seriously terrible books would have been even less meaningful.This final volume succeeds in confirming that the entire series was a waste of time. It brings just about every character introduced by this series together and ends their stories with final [...]

    12. Even at it's best Jack of Fables was never as good as the series it spun off from. Still, at times it had its moments. Towards the end it though it all sort of fell apart. This conclusion to the series does nothing to redeem things. Frankly, it's a mess.Oh, and to this day I still have no idea what the deal with the repeated Babe the Blue Ox bits are about.

    13. Fun, but light. It read more like a kid smashing his toys because he was done playing with them than the end of a series.

    14. Since the arc with the Literals Jack of Fables sank so low. I see nothing in common with how the series started, no humor, no nothing. We're left with Jack shit (pun intended).

    15. And so we have come to this: the Shakespearian ending to the Jack Of Fables spin-off. I was kind of surprised that this wrapped up so quickly, as the narration at the end of the previous set implied that we'd get a longer run of Jack Frost's adventures. Alas, it was not to be. I've enjoyed this series and its largely comic (pun intended) nature as opposed to the also-excellent mainline Fables series, but this volume kind of left me unfulfilled. It was nice to see all the cameos from prior charac [...]

    16. Reason for Reading: Next (and last) in the series.What I like about this (and any Fables series) is you can just pick up where you left off and not have any trouble getting back into the story. I can't believe I put this book off for a year, I did pre-order it! Anyway as I start to write my review I see this volume has a very low overall general rating. Without having read other reviews yet, I can't be sure why, but I think people are being overly hard on it. I actually enjoyed this volume and h [...]

    17. I can't review this without spoilers so: SPOILERS!Okay, you've been warned.Basically, I really love the Jack of Fables series, and up to the last chapter, this installment was no exception. I was a bit annoyed that this book skipped several years into the future. I always assumed that once Jack of Fables had run its course, Jack would rejoin the cast of the main book, but since the final installment was taking place several years forward, and Jack spent those years as a lethargic dragon there no [...]

    18. One other reviewer compared the ending of this book to a car crashing into a wall. After reading this book, I must agree.There are some cool things in this book. I liked the adventures of Jack and Gary and what Jack kept doing to Gary's girlfriends/finances/wives. I also liked how the Page Sisters wanted to become a trifecta goddess (The Librarian) and Jack Frost's adventures and him seeking retirement. So rest assured, this book is not without its good points.If you've read this, you probably h [...]

    19. I'm going to use this review to serve as a review to the entire Jack of Fables series, including the Great Fables Crossover and The Literals.Protect Gary at all costs! The most precious Lil' Buddy of all.This was a fun spin-off which had its own little spin-offs into the different stories about Jack's shenanigans and, in later issues, his endearing son's. I think I enjoyed it a little less than others may have only because the whole self-centered rogue as protagonist thing has never really been [...]

    20. And so we come to the final collection of the Jack of Fables comics. This is volume 9 and it collects issues 46 - 50. It was again written by Bill Willingham and Matthew Sturges. The art was mainly by Tony Akins and Andrew Pepoy but also with contributions by Dan Green, Russ Braun and Bill Reinhold.First of all the best thing about this book is the return of those hot librarians the Page sisters - Priscilla, Robin and Hillary - who are on their own quest to reassemble the Great Library and resto [...]

    21. Ultimately, the resolution didn't make a whole lot of sense to me, but it doesn't really matter because this series is finally over and I can finish the rest of Fables without having to worry about having to read about this reprehensible cad again.

    22. Now that I'm up to date on both the "Fables" and "Jack of Fables", I thought I'd write a review since it's basically all one story. Although I've given different volumes different ratings, the 5 stars I've put on this book is for the series as a whole.I know many readers look down upon graphic novels as being sub-par to real "literature" and I won't go into trying to explain the nature of the medium (Read Scott McCloud's excellent "Understanding Comics"). I can only express my own joy at finding [...]

    23. This is my review for the entire series.Jack Horner is probably one of the least likeable characters I've ever encountered. If he's supposed to be a charming rogue, he doesn't pull it off. He's a complete asshole and just as hate-worthy as any of the villains, really.Luckily, the writers seemed to realize this and made the series build around the other characters instead. After all, the only reason I gave the series a shot was because of the Fables crossover introducing me to the Literals. Thank [...]

    24. The 9th and last collection of the Jack of Fables series including issues 46 to 50.The basic history of Jack of Fables goes something like this. Jack is introduced in the Fables series. While he was a troublemaker, he wasn't a villain. He was the lovable scoundrel. So ka-ching and light bulb flashing, they decided to give Jack his own series. The fans cheered. The problem was that jack was best at being an arrogant, manipulative, self-centered, not-the-brightest jerk. You can't redeem him, but i [...]

    25. Well, Jack Horner, the ultimate trickster of the Fables universe has his own series come to a close in this volume. And while Jack is a great character and I started off enjoying the series, I am a little glad that it is over. While never quite as serious as its parent series, "Jack" took a different spin on things but in my opinion had been on a serious downward spiral. Even the humorous musing of Babe the blue ox were beginning to lose some of their charm.This trade takes a bit of a jump in ti [...]
