Genre: comic book compilation, fairy tales
Length: 184 pages
Setting: New York City and the Farm, present day
Interest: I’ve read all the other volumes and loved them, so of course I read this one when I had the chance.
Summary: There’s a couple of storylines we follow in this volume. In one, we see how Mister Dark was initially captured. Totenkinder wants to try to capture him again, but it requires that she return to her earlier form of Bellflower. Medea is sent to keep tabs on Mister Dark. The business office has been disassociated from its door, so Bufkin is trapped there with all the monsters who were trapped in the office. He has to figure out how to kill Baba Yaga and trap a djinn. The last two issues were about a baseball game in Haven that lead to a goblin eating another Haven resident, which meant Ambrose would have to figure out a way to resolve that conflict, preferably without killing anyone.
Title comes from: The series is called Fables because the characters in the comics are characters from our fables. The volume was called Witches because it focused on the witches of Fablehaven and how they would address Mister Dark.
Reading challenges fulfilled: None since this was a graphic novel, not a book.
