A Quick Look

by yourfriendandy

I knew we were in for an overload of exposition following the climactic events of issue #75, but I wasn’t prepared for it to be so lame. Essentially Fables #76 focuses on Geppetto adapting to life in Fabletown and the residents’ reaction to his presence there. It gets tiresome seeing Fables from the Homelands voice their anger at Geppetto for being granted amnesty throughout the entire issue. We also get the exhilerating priveledge of seeing him experience modern day technology for the first time. Make no doubt about it, there is nothing exciting about watching Geppetto learn what a car is.

I didn’t like Michael Allred’s depiction of Pinnochio. He looked too childlike, which is drastically different from what we’re used to, and it was jarring. I also wasn’t a fan of how the major character who died in issue #75 wasn’t even mentioned.

Fables tops my list of titles currently being published, but this issue was flat out boring and did not appeal to me. Don’t let this deter you from getting into the series, however, as this issue was uncharacteristically bad. Plus, now would be a great jumping on point for new readers.
