Jack of Fables Volume 4 Americana MOBI ↠ Fables


Jack of Fables Volume 4 Americana Jack hits the road in seach of a lost city of gold Aided by his sidekicks Paul Bunyan Humpty Dumpty Gary the pathetic fallacy and the mysterious Hillary Page Jack's in for the adventure of a lifetimeCollecting Jack of Fables 17 21 This series tends to me comical than the main Fables series and while comedy is fine I prefer the original series It has some comedy as well but not as much Plus I don't really like the main character Jack In any case it's still entertaining In this one we see Jack and his troop journey to Americana which is the land of American Fables such as Paul Bunyan Tom Sawyer etc The plan is for the group to find a lost city of gold and they do but things don't work out uite as planned At least not for anyone other than Jack There's also a story dealing with a Shakespeare play performed by Fables I like the art but it's not uite as fitting as the art in the main Fables book I will say the covers by Brian Bolland are exceptional and really a high point of the series Jack and his crew head to Americana in search of gold Americana is a wonderful addition to the fables mythos that hadn't been explored to date It's based on American myths not only those like Paul Bunyon and Tom Sawyer but general ones like Gangsterland and Antebellum along with the villain of this piece the Book Burner I thought this was delightful fun with very good art from Russ Braun Jack of Fables is still on his comic hunt for money This time he has patched together poorly Humpty Dumpty and goes out on a treasure hunt to Americana This was an interesting issue as it deals with predominantly American myths Jack's road is fraught with peril and humor While not up to the caliber of the original series this spin off is a comedic series The artwork is pretty good as well While nothing great it is a fun addition to the Jack of Fables series These Jack of Fables collections are really getting tiredI greatly enjoy the other Fables books so I always expect to enjoy these books filled with similar characters and adventures However many of the male characters in this series are crass and sexist The stories aren't that good either kind of meandering and not fleshed outI feel like the other Fables series is meant for adults and this series is meant for 14 year old boys I have nothing against 14 year old boys but I'm not one so maybe it makes sense that we like different thingsIn any case I don't think I am going to bother reading any books in this seriesOh but hey the zombie townspeople especially the cops in this book are rather funny I like the way they talk Hey We are surrounding you at this time and Become arrested please It's kind of sad when zombie talk is the strongest aspect of a piece of art
