In part 1 of a 2-part FABLES caper, Bigby has to keep an eye on Sleeping Beauty's pinprick narcolepsy from getting out of hand and threatening Fabletown. As if that weren't enough, Bigby must also deal with a sleazy reporter intent on exposing the secret society of exiled fairy tale characters.

    After an issue that left me a little disappointed last month, Bill Willingham returns to form with a very enjoyable two-parter that has several of my favorite Fables involved in a rather clever caper style adventure. I also have to make mention of the newest Fable to make the leap into this comic, as she's a fun character, and the curse she's under does provide for a rather clever method for allowing the Fables to pull off their little heist. The issue also makes good use of the characters who have already been established in previous adventures, as Bigby Wolf continues to be one of my favorite characters, as he carries out his plans admits the various complications that the other Fables bring to the table, and one has to love the sheer sleaze factor of Prince Charming, the undercurrent of danger & duplicity that Bluebeard projects & the con-artist mentality that Jack engages in. The conclusion that the reporter leaps to regarding the Fables is also rather amusing. Read Full Review
