The Emperor sends his forces against the army of Haven and King Ambrose. Wanting to avoid bloodshed, Fly makes a fateful decision: to engage a champion of the Empire's choosing in one-on-one combat! "The Good Prince" part 7.
Outside of that "difficulty" there's not a lot to hold against this series. I do wish we could see more of the Fabletown residents. I realize most of them are watching Flycatcher in the mirror, but that seems like a cheap trick to make sure we're not being short-changed. I love the civilian lives of the characters and hope to see more of that soon. The only other oddity was a choice for the last page. Bill Willingham and Mark Buckingham opted for two half-page panels, slowing down a scene that just begged for a huge splash. It's not very often that sort of situation happens in any story let alone Fables. Read Full Review
That will wait for next issue, though. This issue, the fun is to be had in the Age of Chivalry visuals of Buckingham and Leialoha, who conjure up convincing suits of armor and a plethora of ghosts, trolls and weaponry. The battle with Grinder the Troll has a big and blocky Kirby-esque feel, and theres definitely a feeling of arcane ancient systems at work. As someone dipping in without keeping regular track of the series, the issue is confusing in the details but clear and entertaining in the overall plot of a king trying to protect his lands non-violently.
