Review: Fables: Animal Farm by Bill Willingham
Thursday, August 20, 2015
Eh. Three years have gone by since I read this and I just got around to reading Volume 3. I remember that I do like this world and concept a lot, and I enjoy the artwork, but I did not like this retelling of Animal Farm. I somehow missed the classic novel in school and that's an oversight I've never felt the slightest need to correct. I've picked up enough about it over the years to have a good idea what happens and it's not my cup of tea. The same goes for this graphic novel. In retrospect, I am glad that I continued with the series, and I do feel like you should read this volume before reading the others, but this was a very weak entry for me. As others have told me, it does get better.
