For the month of June Fables writer Bill Willingham gives us a single adventure of a precocious young Junebug exploring the castle on the day she and her parents move into Fabletown. June’s adventures will take her all over including getting underfoot from time to time, and eventually discovering something the young girl wasn’t supposed to see deep with the bowels of the castle.
Willingham does a terrific job of presenting the entire comic from a child’s point of view including using what the adults around her say to her advantage and having them disregard her fanciful story of giant rat monsters when she returns later that night. As to what those scary rats are actually doing, we’ll have to wait and see how that story unfolds.
June’s delivery is perfect and her adventure, even when it turns dark and scary for the young girl, is a hell of a lot of fun. My only real complaint with the story is we only get one issue with the character before the comic moves on to its next arc next month. Best of the week.
