Fables, vol. 21: Happily Ever After - a quick review

Fables, Vol. 21 - Mark Buckingham, Bill Willingham

Fables is winding down to the end of its long and impressive run,but things feel less than climactic, and more like a wrap up, with lots of information given but very little suspense building. And while I'm supposed to see the showdown between Rose Red and Snow as inevitable, I think, it just doesn't work for me, to be the story at the end of things. Meanwhile, Brandish is still kicking around and I remember how, while I've enjoyed the entirety of the comic, after the initial Geppetto storyline, it's lacked something vital. Still sad to see it go, but it's probably time.
