Tourists of the world unite! If you've ever craved a guided tour of Fabletown's secret Manhattan location, prepare to be voraciously satiated.

There's a fair amount of fallout from the decision to admit Gepetto as a member of fabletown, but it's revealed to have been part of a deal for Pinocchio to help them. We also get to see Charming's funeral...

The Dark Ages is the perfect combination of things I love in any story: pathos, tragedy and a glimmer of hope. My personal favourite types of stories are not those full of nothing but despair and pseudo-grit but really those with a conflict between darkness and light. That is what this volume of Fab...

5.0 Fables Vol. 12: The Dark Ages
This could have possibly been my favorite volume thus far. Would like to see more of the new villains awakened in this book, one of which sort of reminds me of an evil Sandman. :)
