Time To Celebrate 100 Issues
It's hard to believe it's only been 100 issues. Fables celebrates the milestone issue with an issue that feels more like a mini-trade paperback instead of a comic book.
The GoodThis is what everything has been building up to. The epic battle against Mister Dark. Will Frau Tot...I mean Bellflower, be able to stop him in a magic duel to end all magic duels? If you've been waiting for this battle, you won't be disappointed. we really get to see what these two are made of. And just when you think it's over...be sure to keep reading.
The story isn't just about the battle. The nice thing about the oversized issue is so much happens. This gives the feeling that the story is longer than it actually is. Without giving anything away, there are major changes that happen. New faces appear and old ones depart. Pretty much everyone you would want and expect are here.
The main story ends on page 68. In a change of roles, there is a nine page prose story by Mark Buckingham with some illustrations by Bill Willingham. There are paper puppets you can cut out (but who's going to cut up their comic?), a couple other short stories as well as Celebrity Burning Questions about Fables characters.
