Jack is always trying to find some way to get rich and keep rich. He’s a lady-killer and will definitely let a beautiful woman side-track him from his adventures – but only for a bit.This latest graphic novel is interesting in the fact that it’s more serious than usual – well, until your dear narrator Jack notices and has Babe the Blue Ox breaks it up with his strange sense of humor. Definitely another great volume in the Jack of Fables series.
