I'd previously decided not to buy Bill Willingham's Fables. Sons of Empire, volume 9 of Fables, made me decide to not even get it out of the library. I am no longer Willingham's audience—actually, I haven't been for a couple of volumes, but I can no longer ignore it.
The last straw for me was the title arc, which boils down to a glamorization of not just war, but violent conquest taken to the extreme. It made my skin crawl. (The continued stereotyping of Arabian Fables, in the last episode, was just a bonus, as it were.)
All hail libraries, because I'd be really bitter if I'd spent money on this series to have it turn out this way.
