Fables v. 14: Witches by Bill Willingham et al

I’ve cut back considerably on my comic reading in recent years, being diligent about only reading things that I like, and stopping on books and series that are less than great. I’m happy to say I tore through Fables volume 14: Witches. Powerful villains terrorize two factions of Fables, who fight back with surprising results. I was gnashing my teeth at the cliffhanger that ended #91, and the following two issues, while good, became an annoying distraction as I’m more interested in the main tale, specifically with Frau Totenkinder, who has always been one of my favorite characters, and who plays a central role in this volume.

the series posits a world in which characters from myth and fable live secretly in our world. It’s dark, magical, sometimes funny, and almost always engaging. For fans of dark fantasy, and other Vertigo titles like Sandman.
