    Slow simmering, the single issue lays the groundwork for Gepetto's possible return to power sometime down the line while, as he notes, all eyes in Fabletown and the Farm are on threats elsewhere. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Chase Magnett Feb 20, 2014

    Fables #138 reminds readers that Willingham is just as capable of crafting short 22-page comics as he is at building eight issue epics. Although continuity confuses the beginning and ending of the issue, the story at its center is wonderfully told. It infuses a classic fairytale narrative with new ideas, and then twists its resolution like a dagger. Those fourteen pages alone make this comic worth the price of admission. Read Full Review
