Fables No. 3

What a tough job Little Boy Blue and Flycatcher have of recreating the Rose Red crime scene.

Flycatcher seems to relish it though.

On top of the Woodlands apartments is the posh residence of the Fable Mayor-for-Life, King Cole.

Let's see if we can remember. He called for his pipes . . .

He called for his bowl . . .

Of Crunch Monkey, hahaha.

He called for his fiddlers three . . .

We have a brief yet chilling look at the pre-amnesty Bluebeard.

Here's another interesting suspect: The Black Forest Witch.

Again, this 'Adversary' is mentioned, complete with a rather brutal panel.

As you can read below, King Cole has to consider more than one facet of the murder investigation. We also get an idea of the rather tenuous financial setup of Fabletown.

Bigby brings in a computer system as part of the investigation and reveals something interesting about his relationship to gadgets. Check out that old style CRT.

Bigby's relationship, or rather, lack of relationship to technology is interesting but unsurprising. As the 'big, bad, wolf' Bigby is practically a nature totem.

Bigby's rather hilarious encounter with Grimble the lobby guard.

The human form is an illusion (or as the Fables call it, a glamour). Grimble is the infamous troll under the bridge.

Coming to feed the prisoner Jack with some Billy Bee Humburgers - I can't help but think that this is inspired by Jollibee Hamburgers - anyway, Bigby gets a surprise.

Oh look, Bigby has transformed. He's huge.

With all that commotion in the dungeon cell Snow is bringing in some reinforcements.

The big dude beside her is Grimble in his real form.

Snow reveals she is carrying a storied sword.

Anyway fight averted. Bluebeard gets arrested.

Ladies and gentlemen, Bigby the slavedriver.

Jack's big news: Rose Red is dead.
