Fables #138

With one year left, "Fables" #138 touches base with Geppetto once more. And if you think Bill Willingham and Russ Braun are going to show a happy reformed conqueror, you're well mistaken.

Fables #120

"Cubs in Toyland" continues in "Fables" #120, and Bill Willingham and Mark Buckingham's story gets decidedly grim as Dare and Therese's situation gets dire with starvation looming, and a sacrifice must be made.
