Fables brings a very interesting twist to our fairy tales that we have known since children. There are many interesting aspects of the comic book including the side jokes and the way they portray the legal system they use away from their fable land. One of the best jokes was about Pinocchio and how the blue fairy turned him into a real boy. What they add in Fables is that he is a real boy who cannot grow older. He expresses his frustration to Cinderella in a very comical and colorful manner. The relationship between Bigby and the pig is also a good addition because what we know of their tale is that they are sworn enemies but in this particular fairytale they are friends and the pig occasionally escapes from the farm to stay at Bigby’s home. The dynamic of the friendship shows they are pretty close-knit because the pig feels comfortable enough to stay with him and their banter together is just like a real friendship.
Moving onto the legal system they have outside of their real home. The one thing that jumps out is the fact that they don’t really have a functional legal system. When Bluebeard attacks Jack, he had no repercussions for his actions. In the fable world violence is handled differently from the outside world.Unlike the regular world where people are held accountable by getting locked up in jail.As for the fable community they handle much of their own situations in a secretly manner they don’t involve judges or police officers.The fables live in a more instant justice kind of lifestyle.
