*Read as individual comics, not the TPB*

I get the feeling that after issue #100 and the battle between Mr. Dark and Frau, a new major arc is on the way for the fables. There are still unresolved problems (i.e., Dark) that need taking care of, and that's the premise for Super Group. Pinocchio decides to set up a group of super fables, and with the help of Ozma, they hold try outs. Their goal is to rid Haven of Dark's threats and ultimately return to Fabletown.

Meanwhile, Bufkin heads out on his own adventure, which is great all on its own.

This arcs conclusion is slightly unsatisfying and anticlimactic, but still fun and perfectly fitting to the story's style.

There's a lot going on in the Fables universe, and it's all wonderfully penned by Bill Willingham and always beautifully illustrated. It's obvious why this series is the best comic series out there right now, and I look forward to reading it for years to come.
