Fables #91

Written by Bill Willingham
Art by Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha, and Dan Green

This book has been on fire again lately. The 'Witches' arc has been all about power plays among the more magical Fables, and in this issue, Geppetto makes his move for power, claiming that he should be in charge not just of the 'fifth floor', but of all of the Fables. This causes Ozma to up her game even more. Meanwhile, Rose Red is still getting visits from pig heads.

While all of this is happening, Blufkin makes his big move on Baba Yaga, showing that he is indeed a powerful flying monkey.

Absent from this book are Bigby and Snow, which seems a little odd. There is too much going on for them to not be getting some stage time. Other than that, this was a fantastic issue. The appearance of a character not seen in some time at the very end makes me look forward to the next issue.
