Finally, Fables #100 hits the market and delivers in spades. The hype for the battle between Mister Dark and Frau Totenkinder had been building since Mister Dark’s arrival into Fabletown. What we got was an epic battle between two powerful magical forces that by no means resolved anything, which is exactly how I liked it. Beyond that, the extra content (and no ads!) gave us a lot to chew on to justify the $9.99 price tag. Kudos to Bill Willingham and team for a job well done and here’s to another 100.

I also cover volume 14 of Fables to get us hyped for issue 100. After losing focus in the crossover from volume 13, it rebounded and gave us great content in building up the battle to come. Bufkin also gets a surprising, yet welcome spotlight in his own battles with the Djinn and Baba Yaga. Honestly, Fables is roaring back to life after many thought it didn’t have the edge lately it had during the Adversary storyline. You definitely need to check these out if you want different takes on your favorite fairy tale characters (or are just ticked at Disney for making them all cute and cuddly).
