What can I say? Fables continues to be the best comic book series out there–period. Sons of Empire maintains the excellent status quo by setting up a major storyline to come, giving us an interesting Christmas tale, and further exploring the relationship between fathers and sons. Most entertaining, though, is a series of “short stories” throughout the volume that fill in some gaps on lesser characters and events.
Really, if you’re not reading Fables, you’re missing out on the best series going.
