Geppetto's conference of imperial leaders continues in the Homelands as they discuss the ultimate fate of Fabletown. The Nome King wants war, Prince Hansel wants reprisals, and the Snow Queen wants a program of assassination. Will anyone argue for diplomacy? Plus, a backup story by Joshua Middleton!

    The backup tale features Pocky Pine, who is..., yes..., a porcupine, but hes got quite a hilarious agenda. The tale features the most stunning art Ive seen yet from Josh Middleton, and I almost wish they would let him illustrate an entire arc of Fables at some point (I only almost wish it, because I dont want to wait that long between issues). Im not going to mention what this storys about, but at the very least it will make you smile, at best laugh out loud. And in this era of reality-centric doom and gloom that most creators are putting out, theres something to be said for a simple story that can involve the reader and make them smile. Read Full Review
