October Books 10) Fables: Rose Red, by Bill Willingham

(Jetlagged bookblogging starts here)

A volume in this generally excellent ongoing series with two main plot lines: the first being the healing of Rose Red, reaching a moment of personal redemption, and the second being the epic battle between the rejuvenated Frau Totenkinder with the evil Mr Dark, which is fairly light in plot terms but has some fantastic art. But the end of the book has their heroes evacuating their last refuge on our world, setting up for the next element of the story.

There is one instalment of the story with art by Inaki Miranda, whose style is very different from Mark Buckingham's; I wasn't sure I liked it at first but on reflection it is OK to have some variety.
