good english

to read makes our speaking English good.
Fables, Vol. 3: Storybook Love - Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha Aaaah I'm at the end of my stash of gifted Fables. I liked Storybook Love a lot; it felt BIGGER than the first two volumes, and covered more ground, so there wasn't a lot of stalling going on.

I did have a slight issue with some of the art: there's a section of the book that's especially Bigby-heavy and in many, many panels, you cannot see his mouth. It bothered me so much! I know it's petty, but it kept distracting me. I don't know if this is something that's actually normal in drawings of Bigby and he was just in more panels in a row this time, or if it's just a common comic book thing that means "determination" or something that I'm too poorly read to realize, or what, but I was thisclose to just drawing his damn mouth myself. Argh.

Anyway, ASIDE FROM THAT DUMB THING, this was my favorite so far.
