I'm either too distracted by life, or this just isn't as good as the past Fables books. I don't know what it is ... maybe too much about the Dark One? Either way, it's taking forever to finish, which I think is pretty pathetic given it's a comic book. ( )

Yay! Mr. Willingham is back in fine form. The Totenkinder sequence is more than worth the price of admission. ( )

This Fables volume brings us back to Mr. Dark and the destruction of Fabletown and it appears this will be the main storyline over the next little while. The witches of the 13th floor are highlighted and we can see there is a tug-of-war going on for the leadership. We see a far different Frau Totenkinder as she solves the mayor’s money problems and is now engaged in learning how to create a box that we hope will eventually hold Mr. Dark.

The secondary storylines involved Ambrose, Red Riding Hood and the people of Haven and the aftermath of a baseball game. But my favorite story starred Bufkin the flying monkey as he battles the evil witch Baba Yaga as they are trapped in the Battle office with all its nooks and crannies.

Over all this issue is a good mix of old friends and new faces facing their difficulties with dark humor and resolution. Lots of political intrigue and action to look forward to. ( )

The Adversary has been defeated, but at great cost--not least, financial. With their usual magical sources of money tapped, the Fables are fast running out of money to fund all the things that keep them hidden from the mundanes. Frau Totenkinder vows to solve this problem, but meanwhile Ozma makes a play for her seat and Baba Yaga is freed from her magical prison. Despite the epic witches involved in this story, its all resolved in pretty anticlimactic ways.

In a short story that follows these travails, King Flycatcher tries to keep his kingdom together after an orc eats a talking bird.

Overall it's fine storytelling and the art is good, but this trade feels aimless and unfocused. ( )
