In this new epic, refugees from Fabletown have returned to New Yorks Castle Dark, and Reynard, now able to shapeshift from fox to man, travels the mundane world to regale the animals with tales of his exploits, rubbing the other Fables noses in his good fortune. Frustration at their restriction to the Farm threatens to become a issue once more! Can the animals find a way out of their situation?

    Mark Buckingham makes a successful transition into writing as the latest Fairest story gets off to a fabulous start. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Fun and interesting, if a little inconsequential. Read Full Review

    With Fairest #27, Mark Buckingham proves that he's been paying attention all these years as series artist for Fables. He's drawn out various plot points and familiar themes from the main series to craft a new story that will interest long time readers and easily draw in new readers who may worry about jumping on board so late in the game. To those who have grown cold on Fairest or stopped reading the book entirely, I would suggest they pick up issue #27 and give it another try. I believe this last story arc in the series could easily turn out to be the best. Read Full Review

    With some very funny moments from Renard, Fairest #27 is a great, but bittersweet farewell tour around The Farm. Read Full Review

    Fairest #27 plays very much into the winding down of the series. Although he's an odd choice for a series which until this issue has focused solely on female protagonists, as a fan of Reynard I'm curious to see what mischief the fox can get himself into before the series comes to an end. The revolution of The Farm should play into the struggle between Snow White and Rose Red and the coming confrontation which has been teased in Fables over the last several months. Worth a look.

    Although Fairest #27 is more interesting and focused than any of its predecessors over the past six months, it still fails to pull readers in. Readers may see this arc as something they are forced to read in order to have a full story, but with a far from memorable start, "The Clamour for Glamour" starts off on the wrong foot.
