    Willingham makes a bold move here, apparently intent on changing the formula that has consistently kept Fables in the ranks of the medium's elite franchises. At this point, I'm equally exited and nervous over what is coming next, though no matter what I have to applaud the creative staff for never resting on its laurels. Saddle up Fables fans, because if it's at all possible, things are about to get even more interesting. Read Full Review

    At the end of the day this issue's quality will probably be determined by what you hoped would happen. For my part I'll say that this issue isn't as captivating as portions of the journey along the way, but it's satisfying in that it shows me the fight I wanted while bringing some major twists along the way. Most anyone could create a list of possible conclusions and have figured out what happens in these final moments, but it's admirable and thrilling to see that Bill Willingham is willing to shake up the status quo. He's planning on taking readers into uncharted territory from now on. It's not every day a writer takes his final story and moves it up to challenge himself to create what could be beyond that seemingly pre-determined horizon. That's the measure of a good writer as well as a series that has limitless potential. I can't wait to see what's next because for the first time in a while I can't even begin to imagine what's around the corner. Read Full Review

    And, of course, the end of the comic? Well, Willingham promised something brand-new for the issues to come on the book, and I think it's safe to say that he's delivered. If part of the purpose of "Fables" #75 was to make people anxious to read "Fables" #76, then he's more than succeeded. In the end, "Fables" #75 is the kind of comic that really grows on you the more you think about it. Here's to the next 75 issues being just as much fun. Read Full Review
