No, this isn't Fables 101, a primer on the wonderful worlds of FABLES. Instead, we check in on Bufkin, Frankie and the Magic Mirror in the lost Business Office to see what they've been up to since slaying Baba Yaga. You won't believe what they're up to. So we won't even try to tell you.

    Another high point of this issue is the art, as Eric Shanower steps in as guest artist. Shanower's presence is particularly appropriate here, for reasons readers will eventually learn. Shanower delivers a detailed and expressive set of pencils that capture all the comedy and goofy action in Bufkin's latest quest. It comes up a bit lacking in that familiar Fables visual tone and art style, but as a brief departure from the series' norm it's hard to imagine something more welcome and attractive.

    I'm especially excited to have Eric Shanower doing the art for this issue. Shanower, of course, has written and illustrated several original Ozcomics, plus he's done masterful work adapting the Baum novels over at Marvel. His inclusion is a nice Easter Egg for fans of his work, and that work is really beautiful to boot, a perfect match for other, more prolific Fables artists. This issue is an excellent way to start Fables' second 100 issues. Read Full Review

    "Fables" #101 is a thoroughly satisfying issue, and a great way to take a brief break from the huge events of last month's issue. The next time Willingham and Shanower decide to collaborate, make no mistake: it's a reason to celebrate. Great stuff. Read Full Review
