Fables issue #102: The Next Big Plan, Chapter One of The Super Team
Bill Willingham steps away from Bufkin’s journey in Oz (or EV as he put it) and focuses on the Fables of Haven. Mister Dark is forcing himself on the border of Haven and Flycatcher’s powers cannot hold it off for long. A group of the fables unite and form a “super” plan of attack that we are all hoping will work out in the end like most super plans do.
I was so excited this finally came out this week. However, that being said I always forget that I get “hella butthurt” by the fact that I only have 8 new pages (the remaining 4 are designated for a preview of a completely different comic by Vertigo) of information per month.
As Fables readers know, Bill Willingham likes to mix it up in the comics by continuously changing the storyline back and forth between multiple events, which is smart, because it keeps us wanting more, and also very frustrating because the single issues are usually setting the readers up and preparing them for what’s to come.
So when I read Fables single issues I normally end up shouting “but WTF is happening with Bufkin?!” or “What?! That’s it?!”
I’m never completely upset by my frustration, because deep down I love every second and I only want to read more.
