The players have call in Robert Speckland, who is something of a Potter-level prodigy when it comes to this world’s magic. He’s gone inside the barrier around the school for negotiation, but when a cop attempts to follow him inside, LITERALLY all hell breaks loose.
The scope of the magic involved here is more than just levitating and throwing energy bolts. It has evolved into a more 3-dimensional strategy between the Fables and the magically-enhanced Mundanes. Unfortunately, the Mundanes seem to be winning.
the opportunity to read several chapters at one sitting has given me new
appreciation for the series. Allow that to be a wake-up call for the comics
industry in general, that more compressed storytelling has greater appeal than
extended narratives to eventually be re-packaged into a trade paperback. Here’s
a thought: release the trade first,
then divvy it into chapters for those who’d rather pay a few dollars a month
than $20-30 all at once.
