Just in time for the 20th anniversary of its launch, the acclaimed blockbuster that defined an era of Vertigo returns with an all-new 12-issue story, The Black Forest-a tale that picks up right where Fables #150 left off, providing a new entry point into the world of Fabletown! The dust has barely settled from the climactic battle between Totenkinder and Cinderella-and everything is far from happily ever after. A legendary new adversary has arrived, and he plans to get even with Geppetto for the mess that has been made of Manhattan. But it's a new day...and with it, a new Jack in the Green has arrived in the Black Forest. And within the emerg more

    Fables #151 is like coming home for existing fans. This first issue indicates it's going to be just as excellent as it's ever been. For new readers, Willingham has the right amount of new characters like Jack-in-the-Green to love and learn about as well as some existing mysteries. It's going to be an adventure for old and new alike as Fabletown and the Mundy World learn to get along which new and existing readers should find intriguing immediately. And, all readers will enjoy the art. Read Full Review

    It's as chaotic and dense as it ever was, and based on this issue at least, it's good to have it back. Read Full Review

    For the time being, we'll call Fables #151 a happy return to a story with a rather definitive ending. Fables are immortal after all, so we shouldn't be too surprised that the story goes on after "ever after." Whether that story is any good remains to be seen, but this new Fables arc at least shows some promise. Read Full Review

    Like your favourite band doing that one farewell tour too many, the choice to re-start the 'fable' seems misguided. Read Full Review

    Who is the new Jack in the Green?
    FABLES 151 comes back as if its never left; the structure and tone fits perfectly with the last arc of the series.
    Now, may not be a popular opinion, but I absolutely loved the final arc of FABLES for reasons I won't get into now.
    My favorite element of the series, Mark Buckingham's artwork (something I love more than the writing) is just perfect here. I adore his pencils and the way he brings these characters identity.

    Now, for new readers, this won't be as enjoyable, I think. There's so much being picked up exactly from issue 150 and before that one could easily get lost. But those are the woods for yeah, aren't they?
    If you're not careful, you're bound to lose your way. more
