    Cubs in Toyland was about so many different themes and somehow Willingham finds a way to bring them all to a satisfying conclusion. I wasnt sure if Id like the ending of this story given how the previous issues made it seem as though nothing good could come out of it. In a story full of darkness and bleak moments, how could it end on any sort of up beat? Willingham wraps up his story in a way that reminds us that in the darkest hours, victory may still be had. But that victory may come at a terrible cost, and those that live on must bear the weight of that burden. Cubs in Toyland may be over, but Therese Wolfs story is far from over. Bill Willingham is not afraid to take chances with his characters and make drastic changes. Fables is a series that is constantly evolving. Its unpredictability and Willinghams confidence in the direction of his story are why Fables is one of the best reads on the shelves. Read Full Review

    Again, a rather pointless back-up adds a bit of dead weight to another strong feature, but not so much that you can't simply pretend it doesn't exist. Read Full Review

    As usual the art team ( Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha , Lee Loughridge) does an amazing job capturing the characters emotions. When looking at Therese you could really see her pain on her face. Even with all the plentiful food around her she still seemed transformed and sad. Her expression never wavered no matter how much good she brought into the world. I also loved the vibrant colors used to depict the transition in Toyland from a void realm to a beautiful paradise. Read Full Review
