The Dark Ages
One thing i did manage to do on my day off was run by the library, where i found 3 books waiting for me! One was Fables, Volume 12: The Dark Ages by Bill Willingham, Mike Allred and Mark Buckingham. I've been waiting for the library to get this since, well, last August and it seems like forever. A lot of anticipation. Unfortunately this book is a bridge between where the huge storyline that carried us from Volume 1 to 11 ended and a new set of conflicts begin. Rose Red, who's been a favorite character of mine since the first issue, comes off really poorly. Another favorite of mine succumbs to war wounds. So it's a sad set of stories. overall, i think it's a 4. Definitely worth it if you follow the series but make sure you don't start here!
