Umm..............omg! 8O ❤

I know I reviewed the last issue of this book, but "Dark City" was just soooooo much more deserving I had to give you the scoop on this book!

I mentioned the villain the Dark Man last time (bit.ly/buHRzV)-he's a very bad guy who is about to face off against the heros-and in this issue he takes the front seat as we only see the regular Fables in passing. The story is told from the perspective of the witch Ozma's familiar in the form of a black cat, who is spying on the Dark Man for Ozma (btw-Ozma is probably Princess Ozma from the Land of Oz by Frank Baum! Cool beans! ;) ).

Willingham tells perhaps his best story in about half the series in an almost stand alone tale that is nonetheless leading into a bigger showdown. But in this issue its the artwork that blows me away! Klein & de la Cruz contribute but Miranda's linework depicting the architecture & people of New York city as pawns of the Dark Man is fabulous! The cover by Raus is hot but the first inside panel of the New York skyline just puts it to shame!

I'm dying to read the next issue! I hope Miranda is back! X9 ❤

RATING: 8 black cats out of 10!
Happy Halloween everybody! ツ*
