Mister Dark continues having his effect on the mundy city of New York, as Castle Dark rises menacingly above the skyline. But now one of the Fables (no, we won't tell you who) has vowed to kill Mister Dark in a duel. What has to happen before a duel? A visit from one's "Seconds" to try to talk them out of such folly. But who's powerful enough to call on the Dark Man without getting his body corpsified and his teeth stolen?

    Even so, this is a very, very effective installment of the long-running Vertigo series. The brief jumps off to the children of Snow White and Bigby Wolf are a bit odd, but one has to assume that there is an imminent purpose. (A sequence toward the end of the issue also reinforces that notion.) Miranda is also a very effective substitute for Mark Buckingham, and while it's always easy to miss the series regular, knowing next month we'll be getting a ton of the artist's signature excellence makes this month's absence excusable.

    Reading this issue of "Fables" makes me wish we'd seen a little more of Fabletown over the past year or so, instead of spending so much time at the Farm. Next month's "Fables" #100 will no doubt spotlight the changes to Fabletown that much more, but it would have been nice to see a bit more of the rise of the witherlings and Dark in general. Still, while I suspect a lot of readers are going to applaud the resolution to Dark's time in "Fables" simply because it ends, we're set up right now for a fairly satisfying conclusion.
