    3.5 stars (I can't justify rounding up, as I typically do.) While definitely readable, this title lacks the warmth, charm and depth of it's predecessor titles. 3.5 stars (I can't justify rounding up, as I typically do.)

    After a mediocre first volume, Everafter really hits its stride here ... in what turns out to be its only other volume before cancellation. Sigh. The main joy here is the storytelling. The authors do an excellent job of moving forward and back to really tell the story in unusual ways, with the prologue and the issue inside the box being the best. And the box itself ... that's pretty brilliant, and really makes the story.

There are some problems with pacing, them it's obvious that the entire comic was brought to a much faster end than was intended. And some of the characters are still a bit one dimensional. But this was overall a strong volume, that I rate 4.5 stars.

    This spin-off shouldn't have been made. There were things I liked about this, but over all why? I liked the add of some lesser know Fables in the Texas and Mexican areas. I liked the art kind of too. I didn't care for the story. Too much going on for a spin-off squeal. Only focused on Connor Wolf and none of his brothers and sister make an appearance. I was hoping this would answer some questions the last Fables volume had, but instead it just opened more questions. This didn't really have a goo This spin-off shouldn't have been made.

If this wasn't Fabes, I wouldn't have read the book.

    Well, that spinoff didn't last long... This is the second (and final) volume of Everafter, and to be perfectly honest, that seems like a good choice. The promise of the premise from volume 1 completely fails to cross over here, and the book is an unpleasant hodge-podge of ideas. You've got what amounts to a magical version of Columbine, where three students take over their school and move it to an alternate dimension (an idea much better explored in The Woods graphic novel series), a Harry Potte Well, that spinoff didn't last long...

Throw in several new characters, trips back to HQ, and diverging time streams and you have a lot of stuff happening, just none of it particularly good. By the final issue, you get the sense of an attempt to wrap up the series, but since it never actually got its leg under it in the first place, it doesn't provide much resolution. Do yourself a favor and skip this offshoot from Fables - it doesn't do justice to its brand.

    Damn, that was complete crap. A disgrace to the original series to share title and characters with this series, no wonder it was cancelled after only 12 issues. I would expect it to be thrown into the comic-oblivion bucket sooner. The first vol. was decent and with some interesting post-fables ideas to expore in the newly magical mundy world, but the second destroyed whatever was starting to being build and crapped all over.

Crazy mexican ghosts who seek a good fuck with a james bond-wannabe to sooth their anger? Seriously? Just blah blah. Of all the fables multiverse stories, this is one you want to avoid. Even Jack of Fables is adorable to read compared to that.

    I guess now I'm well and truly done with all the Fables comics. This series honestly never captured the feel of Fables to me. I liked the art but it wasn't Fables style art and was more action comics art, which really was what this was supposed to be anyway. The character of Conor just wasn't at all likeable, and the main storyline was about a school being held hostage by 3 losers who obtain magical artifacts. With the recent rash of school shootings, this storyline was a little uncomfortable. An I guess now I'm well and truly done with all the Fables comics.

    Shame this series was canceled. It was just beginning to show its potential. The idea of a secret agent squad of fables was touched more briefly with Cinderella stuff earlier, but I think here the idea is more full formed. There are a lot of places they coulda gone with this and it's a shame they didn't get to. A much better premise than the Jack of Fables spinoff which lasted far longer.

    Am I the only one that actually liked these? Sad that it was cancelled! But hey, maybe I'm just a sucker for the Fables series and anything related to it.

    Okay, so I’ve finally finished every volume that the Fables universe has to offer. This one was a good story to go out on. I think it’s the only spinoff (bar 1001 Nights) that’s as strong as the main arc. Just really enjoyed it. Suuuper dark though. Also love the bi!Conner content. Plus, great to FINALLY see more POC in the Fables universe (that improvement came far too late, though).

    Remember how great the first 75 issues of Fables were? If the book had ended there, it would be held up as a Vertigo limited-run classic like Sandman, Preacher, Transmet, Scalped, Lucifer, and so forth. Instead, it went on twice as long as it should have and the universe is now petering to an ignominious end in this z-grade spin-off that "stars" Taylor Lautner as a shape-changing pansexual werewolf secret agent.

    I. Loved. This. I loved it. Most of the stories were on par for what I expect from the Fables series. The stuff in the school, though? With essentially the building of a myth/religion and society? That went above and beyond. That just spoke to me. Holy cow, those bits were intense and well paced and well told. Also, (view spoiler)[Schrodinger's cat (hide spoiler)] makes an appearance, and I could not stop laughing at that. I. Loved. This. I loved it.

    A bit confused on what this one means for the series. An interesting story about school violence, but the rapes and violence are pretty out of control and if you're going to go the direction you go with it, maybe don't try and be so funny about it and try and give the story within more room to breathe.

    Another typical Fables save the Mundy world story. Just like the first volume, I highly enjoyed reading more about Connor Wolf, Bo Peep and Peter Piper. Being from Texas I enjoyed some of the local lore they incorporated in this issue. If you liked Fables or any of the other spin offs, this issue will be sure to please.

    Story was marginally better than the first but the characters were still not that interesting, especially the primary characters. Jack was the worst character in the original run and they seem to have modeled Connor off of him which was unfortunate.

    Incredible An excellent addition to the anthology of the fables. Combination scifi, spy story and morality story. Some of the best work I've read. The art was fantastic too.

    Enjoyed this, and I'm sorry it didn't have a longer run. At the time I was a bit Fables weary, and I guess lots of other fans of the original series were too.

    This was an interesting take on bullied kids finally snapping and taking a gun to school and shooting up the place. How would that go down in a world with magical items? Despite myself, I still find I'm really liking Connor Wolf... despite his oversexed, arrogant, stupidly charming attitude. I'm still not quite sure whether it's because he's a Wolf, or he reminds me of Dick Grayson as an Agent of Spyral, but I just can't help finding myself enjoying his over-the-top personality.

Peter and Bo are a great team and continue to have a really cool dynamic in this volume. It was nice to see Mark Buckingham's return to this universe, but I have to hand it to Travis Moore's art. I love his take on Fables and I think part of the reason I like Connor so much is how he's drawn. I hope this series continues. It's nice to see a smaller slice of the Fables universe.

    Not as good as the first Everafter volume but still highly enjoyable. These two stories of Everafter are among my favorite spinoffs and stories of fables. Peter and Bo once again prove themselves to be among my top ten favorite characters. While Connor Wolf didn't get as much time on this one he was still badass. The newest edition to the Shadow Players, Bobby was also really cool; I liked his story very much.

    After being pretty disappointed by the first Everafter volume, I found volume two marginally better. The story is more coherent at least, although it still goes off on long, weird tangents. The villains are a bunch of high school kids who go power mad with magical artifacts - not exactly a stalwart foe, but interesting enough. The Fables crew who are tasked with battling this threat, though, are beyond wallpaper. Again, Connor Wolf just wants to bone (to the point that it's really very gross) an After being pretty disappointed by the first Everafter volume, I found volume two marginally better.

    I started the first volume a few years ago and took a break, and after returning to this second volume, I'm surprised at how, yeah, this is ridiculous and violent for the sake of being ridiculous and violent, but I'm still fond enough of the characters and the Fables world to keep reading. Everafter basically reminds me of the later volumes of Fables where it just goes off the rails, but Everafter does it in a more condensed and shockingly compelling way.

    Some great ideas. Does not feel focused though and is a little disjointed, detracting from its main story. I wish this series had more time to spread out. It tried to introduce new characters in a poor way without letting you get into them. The book laments its own end in the final pages and does make some good points. I do not care for the central tea of three characters so I did not like the first volume much. This has a secondary story that is more interesting than the team's exploits and tha Some great ideas.

    Este arco es mucho mejor que el primero. La historia y el conflicto se entienden mejor y en general los personajes están mejor trabajados. En esta ocasión hacen apariciones especiales la Llorona y el Chupacabras. Hay una momento en donde la resolución parece forzada pero luego se entiende. Es una lástima que no se haya continuado esta línea.
