Rose Red comes to terms with her past and Totenkinder executes her plan to take on Mr. Dark as Fables reaches issue 100.

Bill Willingham does an excellent job of tying Rose's turnaround into an exploration of her and Snow's relationship, with Rose's bitterness towards her sister explained and some interesting twists that enrich both sister's characterizations.

Meanwhile he also improves on Mr. Dark's decidedly thin characterization as he applies last volume's backstory to develop Totekinder's strategem. While I won't go into detail, it's well worth the read.

The final section is devoted to multiple extras, including the fan favorite questions answered corner. Willingham puts extra thought into some of these and it's always nice to see what's going on in the other corners of Fabletown. If there's one regret with this series, it's that the cast is too large to have the opportunity to explore everyone.
