Part 1 of "Witches"! The business office got lost somewhere when Fabletown collapsed into ruins. Now Bufkin, the meek and mild flying monkey, is trapped inside with the evil witch Baba Yaga and she's in a really bad mood. How is poor little Bufkin going to survive her tantrum? At the same time, Frau Totenkinder and the witches upstate at the Farm prepare to deal with Mister Dark down in what's left of Fabletown.

    It's certainly nice to have Mark Buckingham back where he belongs after so many months away. Buckingham returns to a more familiar art style compared to what he offered on Jack of Fables, with wide pages and storybook collages forming the borders. Buckingham's return lends the book a comfortable sense of familiarity. With the series now back on track, Willingham and Buckingham can resume shocking and awing as the series builds toward issue #100. Read Full Review

    I know that many readers were worried that post-War "Fables" might have lost its spark. Trust me when I say that this issue (and last month's) are proof that Willingham's definitely still got it. I'm not sure that the Master Dark story can maintain its own 75-issue run, but for now it's got what it takes to keep everything moving. Read Full Review
