Fables #120 Review
Fables #120 picks back up with Dare struggling on the beach to figure out what he has to do in order to save himself and Therese, both the children of Bigby Wolf and Snow White, from the island of misfit toys they have found themselves on in Cubs in Toyland chapter 7. Dare’s mental state has been questionable since his injury a couple of issues back, but in Fables #120 the cub gains some lucidity, finally coming to grips with the fact that he must be the hero, that his father will not be coming to save him, and doing what needs to be done. Fables #120 is another in a long line of great issues from Willingham and Buckingham, concentrating on Dare grappling with the idea that sometimes children must be heroes as Cubs in Toyland works its way towards its conclusion. There’s a huge cliffhanger at the end of Fables #120, so we’ll have to wait to see how things work out. Fables #120 is available from your local comic book shop right now for $2.99.
