We skipped last Friday, since it was a holiday weekend, but we’re back with a vengeance this week for another Graphic Content “book club” meeting. We’re meeting up to discuss Fables trade paperbacks each Friday until we catch up with monthly issues. How can you participate? Join the discussion by posting a comment below, and we’ll send you a special coupon code or gift certificate!

This week’s Fables trade is Fables TPB Vol. 9: Sons of Empire, which deals with the fallout from Bigby’s attack on the Homelands in Fables TPB Vol. 8: Wolves. Fabletown may live to regret rattling The Adversary’s cage–if they’re lucky. The Adversary has not only sent an ambassador to Fabletown–the twisted and maniacal Hansel (yes, that Hansel)–but he’s called his most powerful allies to discuss ways they can kill everyone and everything in the “Mundy” world and use it as a garbage dump. Yeah, it’s pretty scary.

Of course, Pinocchio and Rodney (the wooden soldier who was turned into flesh and sent to spy of Fabletown) are horrified and voice their objections–including the ways Fabletown and the Mundy world can defeat them. Unfortunately, this was just what Geppetto was counting on. Now he’s revised his plans further to deal with this new information, which makes him deadlier than ever.
