Part 1 of the new 2-part story "Wolves." Here's the problem: some time ago, in a bit of a snit, Bigby Wolf packed a bag and left the Fables series. Walked right out! But he's still under contract, so we sent Mowgli, of Jungle Book fame, to find him. It makes sense, right? Mowg is a terrific hunter, and he was raised by wolves. Send a wolf to catch a wolf, right? And in his world-spanning travels to track down Bigby, Mowg encounters all sorts of other wolves. In short, this story's all about wolves. Which you might have guessed if you read the story title.

    Surprisingly, this is the second issue in a row with an ambiguous ending that comes off as confusing rather than gripping. It suggests a mystery that wont be revealed until the next issue, but the question centers more around What is Mowgli thinking? rather than Wow, how did he figure that out? These cliffhangers could really bite if Willingham just presented them a bit differently. Read Full Review
