Fables #92

Written by Bill Willingham
Art by David Lapham

Fables takes a break from its Mr. Dark storyline for a couple of issues, and takes us back to Haven, Flycatcher's kingdom, in time for the championship baseball game between Fly's team and the Goblin team. The first half of the book is written as an homage (or desecration) of the famous 'Casey at the Bat' poem, as mighty Weyland ends up letting down his king.

From there, we get some forward momentum in Fly's relationship with Red Riding Hood (finally), and the Goblin pitcher (and hero of the day) commits a murder while deep in his cups.

This is a nicely-written comic, checking in on some neglected characters. The art is by David Lapham, which is always nice to see.
