"Cubs in Toyland" part 1! The most harrowing epic since the series' inception starts when Snow and Bigby's cub Therese receives a Christmas gift from an unknown admirer. This red plastic boat may hold the key to a deep, disturbing secret that will incite a series of soul-crushing events for the denizens of Fabletown.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 18, 2012

    This issue carries a palpable sense of impending doom, but I'm unclear if it's for Winter, for Therese, for both or neither. There is clearly some sort of machination going on, and the conspiracy of cardinal winds bears watching as well, as well as a seeming spy in the midst of the Mayor's attempts to rebuild Fabletown. All in all, this particular issue has a lot of developments in it that will bear fruit in future issues, but still manages to feel like an important chapter in the ongoing story. Fables #114 balances a lot of characters in several different settings, but never trips over itself or tries to be too clever, earning an always-excellent 4 out of 5 stars overall. Read Full Review
