Fables and Jack of Fables


#1

Well since both titles are really good in my opinion and not a part of Dc being vertigo I think both titles deserve their own topic for people to discuss. Are people still reading either of the titles or have you guys gotten tired of it? Fables is actually picking up right now so I would advise getting back to reading it if you dropped it and jack of fables is… well… its jack of fables always knocking at the door of greatness, but just never passing through. Reading jack of fables is like watching tom and jerry hoping tom will win every show, but you know it will never happen,; still fun to read jack though.

It is, without question, scientific fact that FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABLES!!!11 is crack in paper form. I stopped buying it monthly and only get the TPBs, though. So don’t tell me any spoilers like how Peter Pan is the Adversary or something. That would make me cry.

I would suggest any fans who have stopped reading fable to pick it up again as soon as possible because it is getting close to war time. Fables continues to captivate me as a big comic reader. Jack of Fables in my opinion stopped being good after the great escape. I still read it because of its connection to fables, but it could be better. I really thought the bad prince arc in jack of fables was going to be good, but man what a disappointment. Well, happy reading.

I get the TPBs, too… I can’t wait for book 10 on May 28.

I honestly feel like the series jumped the shark with a lot of heavy-handed political allegory in Sons of Empire but I’m willing to give Willingham basically forever to redeem himself. Issues 1-50 bought him a lot of loyalty.

Things regarding spoiling something for Zephyranthes when he specifically asked not to have that spoiled for him have been removed. Please don’t do hateful things like this for no reason at all.

b-b-but my post was marked with a spoiler tag and everything. :sad:

JK Thanks for removing it. it was wack and if I were reading fables and didn’t know yet, I’d be pissed.

As far as who spoiled it, I’ll never tell. Lips are sealed.

Thanks, bubs.

IT WAS MATRIX! HE DID IT! Sorry, Matrix, but the torture was too much!

Everyone cracks eventually.

Anyway, this series sucks.

Yeah it was me. I don’t see what the big deal is talking about something that happened in a comic nearly 3 years ago. Anybody who says they’re a fan of the comic should have known that by now.How in the hell is that a spoiler?

In that case we’d better not mention anything that happens in a comic because there’s always the chance that someone didn’t read and we might be “spoiling” it for them.

Captain America died! Oh no! Somebody out there probably didn’t know that. I’m spoiling it for them.

Heaven forbid people actually talk about what happens in a comic in that particular comic thread. Instead it just oh I like this comic but I won’t buy the issues or this comic sucks. Silly me for expecting a little more than that.

Anyways Fables is still a really good comic and it has a lot of cool stuff that has happened and is going to happen that I wish I could talk about in the Fables thread but because there’s someone out there who might not have read the comic and I might be spoiling it for them.

Matrix9280 has garnered up enough infractions to net him a temp 6 month ban. I gave him 2 for this thread and with the other ones he had from other mods that put him over the top.

It wasn’t because he spoiled a major plot point in Fables, it was because he quoted Zephyranthes’ old post and went ahead and tossed up a spoiler when he asked not to do so. It was a vengeful way of doing things in an attemp to just piss people off.

I tried to talk to him and work things out but this was to no avail.

All of the concerns he mentioned above should have been taken up with me first and not dealt here, in the streets like they say. I could of turned this into a spoiler thread or created a seperate thread no problem and people who wouldn’t want things spoiled would just leave this thread, exactly what happened with the Secret Invasion thread. Or heck I could of at the very least have given Zephyranthes a heads up. It’s best to find ways to get along with everyone instead of just trying to annoy people.

My PM box is always open and I tend to get back to people fairly quick, ask anyone who’s PMed me before. Issues you have with the forum should be taken up with me first and foremost and not brought out in the way that Matrix9820 went about doing things.

My apologies to Zephyranthes and all involved. I apologize to Matrix9820 as well since I’ve never had to do something like this before, but he really didn’t know when to say when and forced my hands.

So yeah, moving on…
