    Batman vs Bigby#6 finishes up this Fables mini-series in fine fashion with some very interesting storytelling from the art team and details that remind the reader why Fables is such a good series. This certainly whets the appetite for the return of Fables coming in May! This has been a fun series and shows that there is potential for more crossovers with traditional DC Universe concepts.

    As someone who likes Batman, fairy tales, literature, and 60s Batman TV villains, the Batman vs. Bigby! series intrigued me. Personally, though, I was kind of disappointed in the final issue, partially because I expected more of the Bookworm. It would be nice to see more bat-villains that originated in the 60s TV show re-invented in the mainstream comics in a darker manner. This proves it can be done well. The Fables characters seem to mesh nicely with the world of Batman, and Bookworm served as a good antagonist throughout most of the series, though I honestly think they missed a golden opportunity by not having the Justice League villain, the Queen of Fables, make an appearance.

    Level delivered some great visuals to the issue. The art stood out as fun and lively. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 22, 2022

    This series largely feels like Willingham taking old toys out of the toybox and seeing how they still work, and on that note it certainly feels fun watching Bigby and Batman go head to head. But what it's lacking is any real sense of advancement for either of the two leads. It's a throwback in every way, and given how rough the last few years of Fables were, I wonder if this is a franchise whose time has passed. Read Full Review

    There's simply too much clutter to appreciate the sense of style presenting this messy miniseries, though. Read Full Review

    As a whole, it was an ok story. Batman’s dialogue felt off. The page layouts were really good.

    Revelations that don't make sense.
    Fails as a bat story and a fables story.
    This doesn't bode well for the upcoming return of FABLES.

    The best part of this series was the artwork which matched the FABLES sensibilities perfectly with interesting paneling and some fantastic spreads.

    It's the worst-selling Batman Black Label book for good reason
