Written by Mike Carey

"Carey and Gross' story about stories took some intriguing turns throughout the year, de-emphasizing the role of Tom(my) Taylor for a time but also revealing more of his origins in the 'Ship that Sank Twice' graphic novel. The 'Fables' crossover that closed out Volume One (a new #1 beginning the concluding arc will launch in January) was not a high point of the series, but nevertheless well worth doing for its exploration of where the two series' concepts intersect. Over the course of nearly sixty issues to date, the creators have kept up a thought-provoking and engaging epic of particular interest to people who care about books and reading -- which, really, ought to be a pretty good segment of the comics-buying community."
