FABLES 101 - Monkey See, Monkey Do!

For all my readers that love both Oz and comics, a special treat hit comic stores yesterday -  issue No. 101 of the much-loved Vertigo series Fables

This issue of Fables begins a new Oz-related storyline. And what better way to begin an Oz storyline than to have Eric Shanower draw it! The issue begins with Bufkin (the former Winged Monkey) and Frankie and the Magic Mirror trapped in the Business Office, all suitably presented in office-like sepia tones. Soon Bufkin is climbing into a technicolor adventure - where, before long, he finds himself in the Land of Ev, almost home to Oz.

Bufkin joins up with Jack Pumpkinhead, the Sawhorse, and the Glass Cat, and the fun begins. But I'll say no more. Go get a copy!

You might want to check out this blog post from last month, too, where we showed the cover and one of Shanower's penciled panels.
