In this fantastic 100-page issue, it's time to put an end to Mister Dark once and for all, and time for the Fables to return home to Fabletown. For that to happen, one of the Fables agrees to take on the Dark Man in single combat! It's big, it's epic, and if you live in New York City, you may want to take a quick vacation when this issue comes out, because things are going to get wrecked! In addition to the larger-than-life main story, we have a FABLES prose story written by Mark Buckingham and illustrated by Bill Willingham! We have an All-Star Burning Questions section that will knock your socks off (seriously, innocent people are going to lose some socks here). We have a puppet theatre created by the unstoppably creative Mark Buckingham, a FABLES board game, sequential stories painted by Chrissie Zullo and Joao Ruas, and even more surprises in this square-bound behemoth celebrating this award-winning Vertigo series!

Time To Celebrate 100 Issues 0

It's hard to believe it's only been 100 issues. Fables celebrates the milestone issue with an issue that feels more like a mini-trade paperback instead of a comic book.  The Good This is what everything has been building up to.

It’s been a long-time coming, and now, finally, the 100th issue of Fables has come out.  Boy, does it not pull any punches! First off, your main story is 60+ pages long and features one of the largest battles to ever grace the series.  The final confrontation between Mister Dark (Duladan) and Bellflower ( Frau Totenkinder) carries the large brunt of the story.  And, for the most part, it’s very inventive.  Unfortunately, for me, I feel like Buckingham’s pencils are more convincing d...
