Fables 16

Fables: Super Team [vol. 16] by Bill Willingham, et al, 160 pages

In a last-ditch attempt to fend off the fear-mongering Mr. Dark, the Fables attempt to create a super team of their biggest, baddest, and least fearful, led by the temporarily wheelchair-bound Pinocchio. The entire storyline becomes an homage to (or perhaps a dig at?) the X-Men, completely ignoring anything resembling character development or depth of plot. Honestly, this is probably the most forgettable volume in Fables, simply because it's so far removed from what makes this series great. However, if I remember correctly, the next few volumes are monumentally good, and they are only possible because of an event in this one, so I guess it does have its merits.
