FBALES VOLUME 12

FABLES: VOLUME 12 THE DARK AGES
Bill Willingham
2009
Vertigo

This series has been a whirlwind of action and intrigue and filled with constantly building anticipation. In Volume 11 we saw an end to the conflict, but things are not exactly peaches and cream for our heroes. THE DARK AGES deals with the aftermath of the war and the coming of another challenge, a dark evil no longer in hiding.
Things are going wrong in a big way, Fabletown suffers a catastrophe and everyone needs to relocate, and even though the war is over, there is death and sadness. It’s hard to write about this without giving anything away. I as curious what would happen once Willingham got the series to the great final war and there was a victor, but it becomes clear that he still has tricks up his sleeve. After the journey he’s taken these characters on its hard to imagine what could be in store next, but this volume really does a fine job of ending the first chapter and leading into the next. This really is one of the best comics being done today.
