    A praiseworthy issue, if only because Willingham tackles an exceptionally sensitive and outrageous subject with such care that it never once feels unnecessary or gratuitous. Read Full Review

    The Cubs in Toyland story arc continues to be a remarkable story. Bill Willingham has got me hooked and I just can not wait for the next issue. As I said and will keep on reiterating the Art is top notch and should be seen by all! Read Full Review

    "Fables" #120's main story ends with a figurative harsh smack to the face. Anything can happen from here, of course, but there's no denying the sense of doom lying over the story and its characters. Right now it doesn't look like we have any sort of happy ending in store, but I'd love to be proven wrong. Willingham's story is definitely one of the stronger ones we've had in a while; the emotional battering that he puts us through can be hard to read, but it's quite effective and memorable.

    Cubs in Toyland has been and emotional story. What started off as seemingly another adventure for some members of the Wolf family has grown into a dark, gut-wrenching tale of human nature's determination in the face of certain defeat. Dare has made his choice, and now we must wait another month to see if he made the right on and can save his sister from the phony throne the citizens of Discardia have forced her into. The last two issues have contained some very emotional, hard to read scenes. I can't wait to see how this story arc ends and what Willingham's story has been driving towards. Fables is one of the few books that makes me truly feel bad for the characters when things go wrong. I hope Willingham gives them a happy moment or two when it's all over. Read Full Review
