“The Great Fables Crossover” is the perfect example why crossovers don’t work. When you take a quality title like Fables, mix it with mediocrity, it only waters down solid storytelling in hopes of…what? Higher sales? In the long run, multi-title crossovers only ostracize loyal readers-making them read and purchase more so they get the complete story. But it usually ends with disappointment.

Though I haven’t been enchanted with “The Great Fables” storyline, it has been getting somewhat better. The twists and turns with the Page Sisters has been quite hilarious, but anything with Kevin Thorn has been downright boring. And what he’s been doing with Bigby has been drool. Very drool indeed.
