    Mark Buckingham isn't given an issue that lends itself to the artist, as it's largely a talking heads affair, and the major action takes place mostly off-panel, though the brief glimpse that we do get is surprisingly effective thanks largely to the horrified reaction of Old King Cole. However, the issue is a wonderful display of what an artist can add to an issue like this one, from Snow's delight when she discovers Bigby has arrived, to the visual contrast of the sweet old lady image with the idea that this character is one of the more sinister villains from the Fables. I also loved the cover design, as is nicely reflects the sombre mood of the story we get inside. Read Full Review
