Fables #135

After last month's look in at the afterlife of Bigby Wolf, Fables jumps right back into the Camelot storyline with Rose Red meeting those wishing to join her new Round Table as Knights of Hope. Despite the heavy turnout, there are still quite a few obstacles standing in Rose Red's way including Snow White who has not forgiven her sister for recruiting Prince Brandish as part of her undertaking.

Other than her sister, Rose Red still has to come up with a method of choosing her knights and deal with the wide assortment of volunteers ranging from all sizes of both a wide variety of creatures and humans. There's also the matter of the quiet man of the hills whose true name and purpose for journeying to the new Round Table has yet to be revealed.

With the near completion of Bigby's shattered crystal form we find one crucial piece still missing (in the hands of a mysterious woman) which must be recovered if the witches' magic has any chance at returning him from the dead. What dark forces are working against Bigby and his return? Worth a look.
