Fables #90

Written by Bill Willingham
Art by Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha, and Andrew Pepoy

There are a lot of great moments in this, the penultimate chapter of the 'Witches' story arc. Bufkin is leading his troops in slow battle against Baba Yaga, making good use of their relative invisibility to the witch. Ozma makes her play for power, and sends a spy to learn about the Dark Man. Gepetto has plans of his own, it seems, and King Cole happily discovers the solution to the Farm's cash flow problem.

In all, this is a very strong issue. This title has floundered a little since defeating the Adversary, but feels to be back on track now. Buckingham's art looks a little rushed in places here though - see the war council meeting at Bigby's house.

I'm still finishing up the crossover, but all subsequent issues are in the house. I can't wait to get to this.

Fables has yet to disappoint.
