This is our solicitation,Going out to every nation,For a new issue of FABLES taking wing.We thought we would this time,Do the entire blurb in rhyme,Just to see if anyone actually reads this thing.In this issue, Bigby resurrected,Quite more monstrous than expected,Is challenged by a golden-armored knight.They throw down in the city,And wont it be a pity,If lives are lost during the bloody fight.As our special gift to you,We make this promise true,That the actual issue wont be all a-rhyming.Twill be done in the best prose we know,About Bigby and his Fabled foe,And their vicious battle fought with expert timing.

    Fables #144 reminds us what it can do when the moment presents itself, with the Bigsby/Beast fight being shockingly graphic. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Mark Buckingham as always does a really great job on art. This issue is very heavy on the action. Ozma in particular looks very Wonder Woman like. She flies majestically and exudes confidence. The reveal at the end is one part fan service and one part logical story progression. It's going to be a tense ride leading up to the grand finale but I wouldn't have it any other way.

    With Bigby's story in full swing the rest of Fabletown prepares for his arrival, as does Snow White who prepares to meet her husband for what might be the final time. Where Fairest seems to have lost its way a bit, Fables #144 provides a strong tale with an enjoyable back-up story offering the final fate of the Three Blind Mice. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Chase Magnett Sep 19, 2014

    The truth is that I'm afraid about whatever comes next in Fables. The series has always held consequences for its characters, but only now does it feel as it Willingham and Buckingham are actively punishing them. Fables #144 doesn't read like a modern fable, it reads like a horror story. Read Full Review
