Quick Thoughts: Mini Comics: Fables of the Flying City

Words By:  Jared Axelrod

Pictures By:  Steve Walker

Publisher:  Jared Axelrod & Steve Walker

Format:  online

Series:  Mini Comics in series with Podcasts of Fables of the Flying City

Recommendation:  Oh yes.  Ashe is daring and on a mission, for a story.  She seeks them out.

Mini Comic #1:

In this six page mini quick fix of Ashe we see in the end just how cunning and brave she is.  She hears something that the Constables would not want her to share, she's a journalist, with the public.  But to keep that hidden, she does what they expect from her.

You get to see Tolban, and learn that Ashe is smart in the friends she has.  And I've become suspecious of the Provost now, even after the podcasts too.

Recommendation:  Yes.  We learn more of the insightful and strong Hanner Gatling.

Mini Comic #2:

We see Hanner Gatling, in her life and adventures.  We learn why she loves the craziness of chaos, it's in her blood.

Hanner has a harsh look at things, yet I enjoy her view.  She is always the one sitting in the middle watching, learning, and noting what is happening to share with the world.

There is one point in this quick comic that Hanner reminds me of Ashe in what she says and believes.  Strange connection there, to me anyway.  I like that connection, but feels strange.  Is there a relationship between them?  One maybe before Ashe lost her memory?

We end with Ashe morning the loss of Hanner.  Hanner was definitely a one of a kind.

I read these for my own enjoyment.


  1. do they have to be read in order? Or can I just pick up one and follow the story line still?

    1. Cherry, I think you could read these in any order. Doesn't give anything away. They are very short and a quick glimpse in a moment happening. Do stop over and take a look. You will be okay. :) Hope you like the artwork and story. :)

  2. Art and a story... you know I'll be getting to these one day...

    1. Hee hee. Do stop by and check these quick comics out Melissa (Books&Things). The story lines are fun and the art is very good. :) Thank you.

  3. These are new to me, they kind of remind me of Manga books.

    1. Kimba, go ahead and check these out. These two are free online. :) And a little like Manga. :) Thank you!

  4. thanks for the discovery I didn't know these ones but they sound fun.

    1. Melliane, sure thing. And these two little ones are free, so you get a glimpse into the world Jared has going here. :) Thank you.
