    In the late 1970s to early 1980s he drew fantasy ink pictures for the Dungeons Dragons Basic and Expert game rulebooks He first gained attention for his 1980s comic book series Elementals published by Comico, which he both wrote and drew However, for reasons unknown, the series had trouble maintaining an original schedule, and Willingham s position in the industry remained spotty for many years He contributed stories to Green Lantern and started his own independent, black and white comics series Coventry which lasted only 3 issues He also produced the pornographic series Ironwood for Eros Comix In the late 1990s Willingham reestablished himself as a prolific writer He produced the 13 issue Pantheon for Lone Star Press and wrote a pair of short novels about the modern adventures of the hero Beowulf, published by the writer s collective, Clockwork Storybook, of which Willingham was a founding member In the early 2000s he began writing extensively for DC Comics, including the limited series Proposition Player, a pair of limited series about the Greek witch Thessaly from The Sandman, and most notably the popular series Fables

    Bill Willingham s Fables is one of the few series I ve stuck with since the beginning, and while it hasn t always maintained the quality and excitement of its best issues, it s been consistently entertaining without falling into too many predictable patterns, thanks to a single ongoing storyline that has dominated everything else the war between Fabletown and the world spanning magical empire of the Adversary.In this trade paperback collection, the war comes to an end, which is an impressive mil [...]

    I am very disappointed how this series is progressing The great Adversary, who provided the tension that made the story interesting early on they were not just Fables living in the real world they were Fables in exile of a great evil is now just a chump TV villain that nobody has a reason to fear Everything goes near perfect for our plucky heroes, and even people who supposed to have no chance of survival manage to make it through alive with no explanation The good guys make clever plans and the [...]

    Just the other day I had a realisation in regards to a film which several people had curiously called a dumb film Then I read an article which pointed out that such a movie, judged linguistically may be seen as dumb But the language of films, the article noted, extends beyond the dialogue or plot It extends into the visual and therefore has a kind of visual intelligence I would like to theorise that writing can be the same, that there are multiple types of ways to read a book One way I would arg [...]

    I have mad love for this series I tried to stay away, take a long break, but it pulled me back I m a fairy tale addict and Willingham gets fairy tales and how to take them and give them a modern update without destroying the essence of what makes fairy tales so appealing.I like that while Bigby and Snow are much loved and favored characters in this series, they take a back seat and we see the heroism and the complexity of other Fables I love how the backstories of the characters come into play t [...]

    A terrible conclusion to what was in parts a great series Fables jumped the shark somewhere around the paeans to the Israeli Defense Force in this book, the writer is marvelously impressed with his familiarity with such military esoterica as concentrated fire and bombing There s a spy story in the beginning in which said spy s internal monologue is about nothing but what an awesome spy she is It s really risible Finally, the last scene involving the Adversary makes absolutely no sense It s reall [...]

    The war with the Adversary starts and ends in this volume It s the most anti climactic war story ever written not in a way that reveals the banality of war, but rather because Willingham has de powered the Adversary s forces to such an extent All the Fables make the right choices, every single time The Empire s armies which stretch over countless worlds and are comprised of a nearly infinite amount of soldiers are destroyed basically off screen, without any effort The story focuses on Boy Blue, [...]

    Well, that was rather anti climatic The Battle of Fabletown Vol 4 was far exciting than this It was still enjoyable but I was somewhat disappointed.

    A bit one sided There Still was allot of drama and it felt like it could v changed out of nowhere I m curious What way the story Will go now.

    Volume 11 of this Eisner winning graphic novel collects issues 70 75, and arrives at what Willingham had been working up to from the first issue of Fables Fabletown goes to war against the Adversary.But, before the main event, the story arc Kingdom Come provides us with the last minute war council among the leaders of Fabletown and also for Boy Blue s confession of love to Rose Red We get a glimpse on the pseudo transition of Fabletown government officials comes about in light on the attack on t [...]

    What was it with issue 70 The art could have been beautiful but no, the faces and character reactions were way over done Rosy red cheeks, pancake batter on Red s nose I am beginning to think I only like darker graphics I want some violence and dark imagery And whatever happened to Bigby and Snow I mean, the writer must have a low opinion of parents, or at least think once kids pop out, people become boring They re married, shipped off to the farm, and drop out of the storyline They show up for q [...]

    The pieces that the title refers to must be what happens to your heart after the events of this volume War has a price and the price in this case is high I wasn t expecting to wind up liking a particular character as much as I did or how heavy my heart would feel when they were gone I knew he had some hero in him as we d seen tiny snippets of it in previous issues so I wasn t surprised as his insistence of doing what he did I am surprised at this character s demise and it again reinforces what I [...]

    This was the first book I read in 2009, and I don t think I could have made a better choice In War and Pieces, the war against the Adversary reaches it conclusion, and I found it very satisfying The story starts out with Cinderella s clandestine mission to get the upper hand on the Empire watching Cindy in super spy mode made me wish she had her own spin off It would be just like Alias And seeing Beauty s confused enraged reaction to Cindy getting her own mission SHE ONLY SELLS SHOES is priceles [...]

    While this volume takes you only halfway through Fables comic run, to my mind it s really done here Last volume was a high religious philosophical ending, while this volume is the gritty reality that has dominated the rest of the series In the end, the Fabletown war comes to an end both by staying true to the concepts of the fairy tales, and then again by the subversion of them that was the series raison d etre And the endings are all good, all consistent, and all sound, with the subversion itse [...]

    Why am I still reading this benighted series

    Jonathan Maas
    Epic conclusion or is it Regardless incredible work I prefer the standalone titles, but still this is great.

    Something that occurred to me while reading Fables is that comic book series not graphic novels, necessarily seem to be focused on creating a structure by which many, many stories could be told Usually, this is a character who can interact with several different situations look at Superman, Batman, or even Swamp Thing , but with Fables, that structure is the premise itself, that the characters from fairy tales are all real, living in Manhattan, and waging war against the evil from their homelan [...]

    Oh my the war is here Oh my the war is done Okay, so the war started a long time ago, and we ve been building for a very long time in a very close place, but I felt like I was waiting for the other shoe to drop and smash something to bits Where was the vaunted horror of the Empire and the Adversary Maybe it is the horror of comparison to our own vaunted American Empire and how brittle it truly is Whoops, I ll skip the rhetoric and instead contend that there was a lot missing, and I truly did not [...]

    I m a sucker for airships, even if they are powered by flying carpets This is finally the war between the Fables of mundy New York and Gepetto s multi dimensional Empire I can see why Willingham was nervous to finally give us this war While his characters are great and small group actions like Cindarella s spy mission at the start of the book are well presented The bigger military portions seem badly forced though It s all over a little too fast for my taste, but still a worthy addition to the s [...]

    This is the moment that Fables has been leading up to from issue 1 the war between Fabletown and The Adversary.I very much like the way this volume is set out There are 3 issues leading up to the war 71 72 were particularly good in my opinion and then another 3 to cover the war itself Whilst I was a little disappointed with the first issue of the war 73 , things quickly got better from there and this volume managed to pull itself back up to the standards I have come to expect from the Fables tea [...]

    For such an amazing lead up to the final confrontation, this one was disappointing view spoiler The Adversary is built up as this unstoppable, horrific enemy and he goes out with a whimper as the Fables bring the full might of modern technology against him For such a great series, it was disappointingly easy hide spoiler I m still giving it three stars because the battles were still epic and awesome at points and I loved seeing the characters go to war but it s definitely a let down for me.

    Meagan
    Although perhaps not as thrilling as the Battle of Fabletown, or as emotional as the last ship out of the old kingdoms, this was a pretty satisfying end to the war against the Adversary I worried for some of my old favorites, but in the end it was an unlikely character whose loss was the most affecting And even though victory has been claimed, I have a sneaking suspicion that there s another shoe waiting to drop.

    Sarah Hogman
    An excellent conclusion to the adversary story arc or IS it a conclusion, I mean I specifically like where they say and that Is how the Great War ended Not with a bang, but a wienie roast All in all, this volume feels almost anticlimactic, but I suppose that s part of the beauty of it All of this build up to crescendo so suddenly, and yet it sets the scene for so many excellent story arcs.4 1 2 stars.

    Wow.I consider this entry in the Fables series to be one of the strongest.The war between the Emperor and the residents of Fabletown really comes to a head.Sinbad plays a big part in this one as well as Prine Charming and Boy Blue.Filled with action and the final battle pits Bigby Wolf against the emperor in a brutal slugest.Lastly a important Fable character meets his untimely demise.

    Mike Lay
    Decent war games, strange ending.

    Amanda Elliott
    Fables, why don t I like you any I ll continue to stick with you though, in hopes that I will one day enjoy you like I use to.

    Jean Ramsay
    Every time I come back to Fables I wonder why I had gone away from it for so long Outstanding story telling, unpredictable characterizations and beautiful art.

    Karen
    Another great fables book.
