Fables, Vol. 13: The Great Fables Crossover by Bill Willingham
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
Okay, so this volume is what happens when someone who is supposed to be smart and knowledgeable about his genres and literary conventions goes out of his way to make a mockery of absolutely everything and doubles down on the meta, masquerading as an anti-writer's-block while eventually having absolutely nothing to say.
In its particulars, it sometimes comes off smart, but as the story lays itself out, I just want to cry.
I'm a fan of meta stuff when it's done right. This one... proceeded to tear apart everything that made Fables decent and shat upon it.
