Preview for Fables #83 IGN.com has a preview up for Fables #83, which is the first issue of The Great Fables Crossover that begins this coming Wednesday and runs for three months through three issues of Fables (83-85), Jack of Fables(33-35), and The Literals (new miniseries created specifically for this event).
It is also the first issue to feature a cover by new cover artist Joao Ruas.
Can I just say beforehand that the art is gorgeous. Blue's armor, Stinky the Badger and Clara the Raven all look fantastic. It's good to see Mark Buckingham draw the Farm again because he rocks at animals.
I'm really hesitant for this crossover. I hate the idea of the Literals and have never liked Jack all too much. But it should at least be an entertaining three months and I'll enjoy getting Fables-related stuff 3 weeks a month.
