Comic Books


This issue begins a 5-part story called “Super Group!” Now why, oh why, in this crazy mixed-up world would we saddle an important funny-book series that has, in 100 issues so far, never had anything to do with Super Heroes with a title like that? And why has snotty little Pinocchio suddenly got it into his head that he needs to design tight-fitting costumes for a carefully selected small team of Fables? In fact, why was the little brat caught looking over his own comic book collection, mumbling things like, “We can call him Werewolf Man, and he can be the Golden Knight, and she can be called The Green Witch?”

To quote master Fables illustrator Mark Buckingham: “What the bloody [censored] is going on here?”

  1. I love Fables, but this is definitely going to be interesting.  I’ve not been let down before. 

  2. Interesting.

  3. @stuclach  Indeed.

  4. I’m not sure if I’m super excited for this arc or if I’m absolutely dreading it.

  5. Definite feelings of trepidation but the only time I remember this series disappointing was during the ill-conceived (in my opinion) great fables crossover so I will give Willingham and Co. the benefit of the doubt.  #100 was masterful – well the main story anyway.

  6. Excellent! I’m excited about Fables again and I like it.

  7. I agree with kmob181, the crossover kinda soured my fables experience. And though 100 was excellent, but I heard about the title of this arc and got a little worried…but this is hot, this issue reminded me of what I love about fables, super excited.

  8. To me the Crossover paid off if you had been reading Jack of Fables. If you only read Fables you were a little lost as to who some of the charecters were. Over all it was a bit disapointing. This new “superhero” story arc looks promising.
