Librarians- nasty bunch if you rile them

I've only read one Fables compilation, and have always intended to read more. I picked up Jack of Fables, because of it's standalone nature. The two panels here show what I was pleased to find- one cute redhead and the gang who call themselves "senior, assistant librarians" who are "a nasty bunch of if you rile them".

Speaking of master librarians: Dave at Yet Another Comics Blog is celebrating a 2 year blogiversary and 100 comics giveaway. Congrats Dave!

Quicky reviews
Bite Club VCU 4
Chaykin's signature style on the cover-- big bug eyes and bared teeth. Detective MacAvoy was shot, and when vampire bats gorged on the blood, he has been infected as a vampire. Risa del Toro is released when the plasmagoria was found in the two victims blood, and not in her own. At the press conference, Risa bites her girlfriend Carrie's ear..who had been meeting with police. Carrie has crossed the very dangerous Risa, and we can expect her number will be coming up soon.

Catwoman 57
Leather. Protective? Yes. Comfortable after 10 hours? Not so much.

Selena fights the crazed film guy and friend who have grabbed her baby Helena.

Holly is apprehended in the end- you killed Black Mask, now your gonna fry for it. Selena calls on Zatanna to help Holly:

Lives are in danger- you're the only one who can save them. You owe me, Zatanna!
I liked where Wildcat, smoking a cigar, goes off on a green, glowing lounge chair with the Green Lantern. I didn't like the asian style muted cover on this issue- while some cover art is too eye-popping, I think this was too muted. Points for a different style though.

FABLES rocks - I started with the second trade, went back to the first, then became totally hooked. Buckingham's art is great - he matured into a great artist, a little bit Alan Davis, a little bit Steve Rude, all great.

If I had more money than sense, I'd blow it all commisioning the guy to draw nothing but wolves, pigs, tigers and weird little guys with sunflowers for heads.

You know what I like about FABLES and JACK OF FABLES?

It's as if they're written just for me. Tight, exciting, clever, well drawn...almost a good excuse to stay home on Saturday night.

That Catwoman cover is a clever nod to one of the Lone Wolf and Cub manga. Makes more sense in that context, especially given the nature of the story that issue..
