Jack of Fables: The (Nearly) Great Escape

Fans of the award-winning "Fables" series will want to follow the comic title's first spin-off, "Jack of Fables Vol. 1: The (Nearly) Great Escape." The five-issue collection plops Jack (as in "and the Beanstalk") in a prison community for those fairy-tale and nursery-rhyme characters who have fallen out of favor.

Between bedroom romps with Goldilocks, he plots his break with the help of a deteriorated Humpty Dumpty and a now-elderly Little Black Sambo. Don't mistake it for kid's stuff; "Jack" is strictly for the adults "? devilishly scripted and drawn, and tons of subversive fun. Vertigo "?Rod Lott
