In this fantastic 100-page issue, it's time to put an end to Mister Dark once and for all, and time for the Fables to return home to Fabletown. For that to happen, one of the Fables agrees to take on the Dark Man in single combat! It's big, it's epic, and if you live in New York City, you may want to take a quick vacation when this issue comes out, because things are going to get wrecked! In addition to the larger-than-life main story, we have a FABLES prose story written by Mark Buckingham and illustrated by Bill Willingham! We have an All-Star Burning Questions section that will knock your socks off (seriously, innocent people are going to lose some socks here). We have a puppet theatre created by the unstoppably creative Mark Buckingham, a FABLES board game, sequential stories painted by Chrissie Zullo and Joao Ruas, and even more surprises in this square-bound behemoth celebrating this award-winning Vertigo series!

    There are even some additional odds and ends throughout the comic (after all, it is clocking in at a whopping 104 pages) that include a Thumbelina story (which has beautiful Chrissie Zullo art but story-wise falls a little flat due to its short length), some paper puppet cut-outs, and even a new Three Blind Mice story illustrated by cover artist Joao Ruas (which uses its equally short length much more effectively). It's overall a solid package, and a great celebration of "Fables" hitting its 100th issue. If all issue #100s were this much fun, well, we'd probably get them even more than the normal flood of issue #1s. Happy centennial, "Fables," and I'm already looking forward to #200.

    Finally, this issue includes materials for both a Fables-themed board game and a puppet theater. These are... interesting inclusions, but it's difficult to imagine many readers doing more than quickly glancing at the two sections and moving on. But while the bonus content in this issue could have been a bit more consistent, it's hard to argue Fables #100 doesn't offer plenty of bang for the buck. More importantly, it serves to inject some energy back into a book that's been flagging for too long. Read Full Review

    Its a huge package 100 pages for ten dollars but its also a book thats worthy of this superstar treatment and, for the most part, it earns it. In reading time, if nothing else, this book gives you more than your moneys worth. Fortunately, the stuff youre reading is also, for the most part, great. Read Full Review
