Fables: Werewolves of the Heartland by Bill Willingham

Willingham takes us on an adventure outside of the usual Fables series to focus a little more on the beloved Bigby Wolf.  In order to get away from the dark man, he hits the road in search of a possible alternate location for Fabletown.  What he finds is a world that haunts of his past.

Werewolves of the Heartland is best read after reading Fables #16:  Super Team, though it can stand on its own without having all the background knowledge from the previous volumes.  It is a fun read, especially for lovers of werewolves, but it is not as strong in entertainment value as the original series itself.  However, if you consider it yet another level of the Fable world, one that brings in more complex characterization and an interesting layer of Bigby, his past, present, and future, it is a volume you don't want to miss.

Have you visited the Heartland with Bigby?  What did you think?


  1. Well, I love just about everything about the Fables series, so it's no surprise that I loved this one too! Especially since I have what may be an inappropriate crush on Bigby Wolf. I agree with you, that it's not as strong as the main series, but as a side dish for fans, it's wonderful!


    1. ... Ha! I'm pretty sure that your inappropriate crush on Bigby is actually more on the normal side for many Fables fans! I just adore him!! I really enjoyed this one!
