Fables #4: March of the Wooden Soldiers by Bill Willingham

March of the Wooden Soldiers continues the brilliance of the Fables series by Bill Willingham.  In the previous editions, readers are introduced to fairy tale favorites that we have grown up with; however, these characters have been exiled to our human lands due to war.  Conflicts have erupted amongst their own throughout the centuries, but within this fourth edition they must band together as the old war returns to their new home.

As I read more through this series, I fall in love with it even more.  As Willingham expands on the history of his created world and opens readers' eyes to the unknown stories behind the characters, I become more and more invested and completely hooked.  We see the power of these fabled characters, but also their vulnerabilities, creating more of a connection to mere humans like myself.  I simply love falling into this world with every edition I pick up.  My only complaint is that Snow White's special delivery has not yet made an appearance!

Special Note:  For mature readers only!

Tell Me:  Who is your favorite fairy tale character, and how would you imagine them living in an exiled world?
