    This title should feel magical, and Fables #153 does, but it does so in some of the most human ways. The real magic comes from the pens of Buckingham, Leialoha, Loughridge and Willingham. One can feel the excitement building, it's just a shame it takes a month between issues. Read Full Review

    The series has been good since the start of the new run, although it has yet to reveal much about its larger narrative. This issue feels like something new, with a truly killer cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    The child that gets the most time is that of Ambrose Wolf who meets a bookworm in the woods who invites the avid reader back to his home to see the creature's marvelous collection of books. Ambrose spends more time than expected in the home of the worm whose true visage is a bit more terrifying that how he introduced himself to Ambrose and who has darker plans for the boy than simply sharing a love of reading. A bit of a middle issue to the larger arc, and not as much Cinderella, but still plenty for fans to enjoy. Read Full Review

    For the most part, Fables hasn't lost any of its quality, although it's still unclear how all these dangling plots are meant to collide even a quarter of the way through the new revival. Read Full Review
