    Fables #140 features a few highlights in a generally lackluster issue. Its purpose in foreshadowing the natural conclusion of the series is well served, but the story itself does little to add to the overall richness of its fictional universe. With little characterization or stakes, this is issue is at best a necessary stepping stone to the epic conclusion which begins next month. Read Full Review

Boy Blue was one of the best-developed characters in Fables and "the boys in the band" deserved their moment in the spotlight. I expected more from this issue, especially as the series nears its finale. Read Full Review
