The The Long Hard Fall of Hollywood Jack wiki last edited by fables87 on 05/06/13 01:20PM View full history

Everyone's favorite trickster is back - now in his own monthly series written by FABLES creator Bill Willingham and prose writer Matthew Sturges (Midwinter, Beneath the Skin and Other Stories) and featuring art by Tony Akins (HELLBLAZER: PAPA MIDNITE) & Andrew Pepoy (FABLES) and covers by James Jean. After stealing money from Fabletown and pissing off all the wrong people, Jack of the Tales - who is at once every Jack of legend - was booted out of the Fables community. But for Jack, there was no better way to strike back than starring in his own series.

Last seen hitchhiking from Hollywood after releasing a trilogy of films (about himself) that made him an international superstar, the series follows Jack's immediate adventures as a wayward Fable in the heartland of America. His extreme road stories and encounters with other notorious, renegade Fables are just a few of the situations in store for this fan-favorite character of the multiple Eisner Award-winning FABLES series. Willingham remarked, "The only way to stop Jack from stinking up the regular FABLES series was to offer him his own spin-off book, so really we had no choice."

Jack of Fables - Part 1. 0

Admittedly, this is the first Fables comic I've read. Mainly due to how difficult it is to get hold of Fables comics, especially when you want to start from the beginning. For any new Fables reader, I would recommend this, as you don't really need to know the back story of Fables to understand it. The storyline and dialogue is very smart and funny and it's quite fun spotting different Fables characters, although there's not much of a chance to do this, hopefully there will be later on. The pages...
