I read the newest volume of Fables, and I must say that the series has jumped the shark for me.  The writing  has turned to parodying comics rather than good storytelling, and it is getting quite boring.  The resolution of the story with the Dark Man was highly unsatisfying: 10 issues or more to end with a quick resolution?  Argh.


I keep reading Stephen Brust's books like a habit: they come out every few years, I read them.  I can remember the fun I had reading the first one: the most recent almost seemed like a chore, because I couldn't remember anything from the previous books, given the interminable wait between books.  Oh well, this one a fun story, at least.  I read it some weeks ago, but forgot to blog it.
