Fables 14 & 15

Fables: Witches [vol. 14] by Bill Willingham, et al, 192 pages
Fables: Rose Red [vol. 15] by Bill Willingham, et al, 256 pages

These two volumes are, in my opinion, the best part of the Mr. Dark story arc. Witches finds the magical inhabitants of Fabletown's 13th floor coming up with a scheme to take down the shadowy bad guy (Frau Totenkinder, of course, has to do it her own way). Rose Red focuses on the backstory of its titular character, giving a VERY different interpretation of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, but adding a level of depth to a character that has spent way too much time wallowing in despair in recent volumes. Really, I just love these particular characters, and it's great to see them in the spotlight here.
