If you like fairy tale retellings, adult humor, and graphic novels, you can't beat the Fables series by Bill Willingham. In the sixth entry, Homelands, we follow two principal stories.
The first tale reveals what happens to Jack (as in "and the Beanstalk," "and Jill," "Be Nimble," and more) after he disappears from Fabletown. It seems that he looted the town's treasury and then lit out for Hollywood to become a movie producer. He wants to make a trilogy of his own life story that will be the biggest fantasy ever to make it to the big screen.
Things don't go quite the way Jack had hoped, and the story marks the jumping-off point for the Jack of Fables series (which I plan to read).
The rest of Homelands focuses on Boy Blue and his attempt to infiltrate the Fables' original world, which is currently under the control of the Great Adversary. His ultimate motivation is to rescue the love of his life, Miss Red Riding Hood, and to defeat the enemy, if at all possible. In this tale, we learn some truths about Blue, Pinocchio, Geppetto, and Mowgli, among other familiar characters. We also see how Fabletown is faring under the Charming administration.
As I've said before, the people and creatures of the Fables books are not your childhood friends. The characters we meet have seen generations of life and several worlds, and they've grown and changed. Willingham's novels are wonderfully illustrated by a team of artists, who add action, emotion, and details to the basic plot.
Give it to me quickly: World-wise fairy tale characters tackle modern problems in this graphic novel series. Fables 6 focuses primarily on Jack, Geppetto, and Boy Blue.
