Rusty's World

Rusty’s Reading List 2018 | January 5, 2018

Fables-book2

Continuing my Fables re-read, this is where Mark Buckingham becomes the regular artist. Once again, reading the book is still goos – still entertaining… but it is also where you can really watch Willingham’s world view push through. The fact that the inhabitants of the Farm are right is completely pushed behind the over-the-top warped look at ‘revolutionaries’. Goldilocks is a caricature. An amusing one, yes, but still a caricature. The thing I find interesting is that the uprising is shown to be wrong because they execute those who stand against them… which the government non-chalantly does as well, but the idea that they are also in the wrong is never explored. Snow accepts the idea that her sister will also be executed like it is just a given. They even replace the pigs without a single person questioning their authority to kill their predecessors.
