"CAMELOT," part 6 of 7! The new Round Table has been established and potential knights errant are beginning to arrive from worlds over - including one ragged and mysterious piece of work from who-knows-where? At the same time some of the early volunteers are sent on their first quests. Raise your hand if you think that will go smoothly.

    I also want to make note of the cover art by Daniel Dos Santos. Fables is known for its beautiful covers but this one is one of the nicest I've seen in a long time. That shot of Rose Red is regal but screams warrior at the same time. Almost like a fairy tale version of Red Sonja. Read Full Review

    Fables #136 is a perfectly standard issue of this series. It may age well as Willinghams goals become more and more clear, and it creates pathways for the great character moments and resonant themes this series has achieved in the past. But for now, it is pretty typical. Moments like this are often necessary in longform storytelling, allowing for powerful act breaks in the near future. Theres plenty to chew on in the meanwhile with genuinely funny dialogue and wonderful character beats. As long as some genuine change is made in the near future, this is a forgivably slow issue. If not, it could be the beginning of a bad trend. Read Full Review

    Good ol' Fables, the most reliably solid series from Vertigo, if it's no longer the most groundbreaking or exciting one. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 6, 2014

    A very strong issue that continues the current story while laying the foundation for ramifications down the line by suggesting the evil to destroy the new Camelot is already in place. The issue also several times refers to the never-discussed parents of Snow White (who could play the role of Morgan le Fay this time around) and Rose Red as having some huge consequences of its own. Worth a look. Read Full Review
