    Halfway through this series, it seems hard to believe that everything that's been introduced can be neatly wrapped up in only another six issues. Read Full Review

    Buckingham delivers some beautiful art in the issue. I continue to be impressed visually with the world being created as well as the wonderful framing of each page.  Read Full Review

    It's certainly brings to an end the rather slow pace of the past few issues and should make the remainder of the series a lot more exciting. Read Full Review

    This still leaves one of the children out on her adventure while other stories continue as well when the new Jack gets arrested after hunting down Peter Pan (offering some commentary on the bizarre ways on how laws work in the real world). The issue is also notable for the dialogue between Pan and Tinkerbell further exploring their relationship and foreshadowing the character's plans moving forward. Read Full Review

    Willingham couldn't help himself, Fables 156 is a weird turn for what so far has been a really, solid series. The heavy-handed reactionary writing feels way too overt and in your face it's distracting.
    Buckingham's art continues to be amazing, wonder where the hell this is going as the tale remains to be unpredictable, and that's still a good thing.
