Collecting FABLES 6-10, the second story arc of the fan-favorite, critically acclaimed VERTIGO series. Travel to upstate New York, where the non-human Fable characters have found refuge on a farm, miles from mankind. But all is not well on the farm - and a conspiracy to free them from the shackles of their perceived imprisonment may lead to a war that could wrest control of the Fables community away from Snow White. Starring Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Plus, a sketchbook section featuring art by Willingham, Buckingham and Jean.
On this Animal Farm, the pigs (and the lions, tigers, and bears) have a lot more than just philosophy at their disposal....They have guns. This is the second full-color graphic novel collection of the FABLES comic book series, covering issues 6 through 10. Snow White is the assistant mayor of the Fables-in-Exile, responsible for governing those mythical and fairy-tale beings who emigrated to our world many years ago to escape the Adversary, a terrible enemy invading their lands. All of the more obviously nonhuman Fables (talking animals, giants, etc.) make their home in an enclave known as the Farm--which they're forbidden to leave, lest mundane humans, or "Mundys" discover their secret. Accompanied by her estranged sister, Rose Red, Snow goes on an inspection tour of the Farm, only to discover that its inhabitants are plotting a revolution against both the Adversary and the humanlike Fables. This graphic novel includes reproductions of the original comic book covers as well as a series of cover and character pencil sketches.
