    As he has done in every issue previous, artist Shawn McManus delivers the goods. A particular favorite moment in this issue comes during a reveal that sees Dorothy holding Cindy captive, but in the bottom corner stands Toto (or at least, I'm assuming it's Toto), propped up and growling angrily at their prisoner. McManus manages the difficult feat of not only making an animal portray human emotion, but also adding a very zany comedic element to a scene with some emotional weight behind it. Roberson's script, in true Fables form, constantly walks the line between drama, fantasy and comedy. McManus shows that he understands the formula perfectly and is able to inject little bits into his panels that help the issue soar to new heights. Read Full Review
