Brief Mentions: (Things Begin to End.)

Fables # 83

Writers – Bill Willingham & Matthew Sturges

Pencils – Mark Buckingam

Cover - Joao Ruas

Well, “The Great Fables Crossover” has begun. And yes, it was a great start to something everybody should have been excited about for months. This issue gave us a fierce battle, which proved a point that will help use guys live happier lives. That point is that no matter what women wear the pants. Obviously, there were plenty of story telling animals, not to mention a face that was lost not all too long ago. The mystery of the dark one and the effects of his arrival unravel a little bit more, leaving a not so good feeling in my mouth. Needless to say, things are about to get a lot more interesting for or fabled friends. May they eventually find their happy ever after, until then my friends, you best prepare to kick a little ass. You know what they say about what you have to do if you want to get to heaven. Something tells me that the answer is in the long distance call.

Do I really have to tell you how good this creative team is? You just saw their names right?

100 Bullets # 100

Written by: Brian Azzarello

Illustrated by: Eduardo Risso

Cover by: Dave Johnson

The end has come to an amazing 100 issue run by Azzarello and Risso. Your hats should be off to them. What an enormous feat this is. I can’t wait to read this story again beginning to end and realize how much bigger this book really is. You see, one of my super powers in data dumping at light speed. (As if smelling the future is not enough) With that said, even though I loved reading this title monthly, I have no idea what the hell was really going on. The strange thing is that every month I couldn’t wait for the next issue to come out. Now, I will say something you should take straight to heart, a 100 Bullets issue is nothing short of a pure joy, to read. This book possesses all aspects of the emotional spectrum. Who would of thought a savage beating could be so hilarious? Anyway, if you don’t read this book there are trades that I suggest you pick up. That is if you would like to own 100 issues of solid story telling, solid art, and you basic general badassery.
