Fables #137

The Camelot storyline comes to an end as Rose Red chooses her first six new Knights of the Round Table (Brump, Wellstuffed, Bo Peep, Reynard, Maeve, and Lancelot), we see the power of her actions begin to manifest, and Lancelot discovers (much to his dismay) his role this time around.

Although the arc comes to an end, and much of the focus is on Red and her quest, the perspective of the issue is from that of Snow White's intriguing daughter Winter who is simultaneously both a small child wanting to protect her mother and a wise and immensely power creature of nature slowly building her own forces should there come a time when Rose Red and Snow White's dispute turns violent.

Fables #136 also foreshadows the return of Bigby with the completion of his statue (except from a tiny piece made into a ring) and some ominous words from Winter suggesting that the wolf's eventual return may not be the cause for celebration all may hope it be. Worth a look.
