The plot thickens! The Mean Seasons isn't just one story-line, there are several side stories, back stories and different threads that pick up where volume four left off. Snow White is in labor (is there more than one baby in there?!?), the mayoral election between king Cole and Prince Charming is getting heated, and where in the hell has Little Boy Blue run off to this time? I particularly like the World War II backstory of Bigby; it's like a movie! Monsters and Nazis, oh my! Another amazing volume, this series is money in the bank!
