This volume, FABLES Vol. 16: SUPER TEAM, collects issues #101-107 and is bookended by two self-contained stories. "The Ascent" kicks things off and offers a catch-up peek into doings in the Fables' lost business office. In this one-off, the blue winged monkey, Bufkin, hero of the realm of the lost business office, scales an ancient giant tree and somehow ends up back in his homeworld of Oz. Thereabouts he begins to foment a revolution, of which we can be sure to hear more in due time. Just not now. "Waking Beauty" closes out the volume and catches us up with - as Bill Willingham puts it - "the life and restful times of one of our long overlooked friends, as she continues sleeping on the job." Just goes to show, nature abhors a vacuum. In the Homelands, in the ashes of the Old Empire, assorted warlords vie to become the new head cheese. One such has figured out that one way to power is to lift the enchantment from the sleeping Briar Rose. But he's not the only one to have worked this out.

Getting to the meat of the matter: As things stand, Mr. Dark had sown waste to Fabletown and had driven the Fables out of Manhattan. Recently, Frau Totenkinder had failed to properly contain Mr. Dark, who escaped his confines, forcing the Fables to flee the Farm in upstate New York and seek refuge in the kingdom of Haven. There's nowhere else to go after this, should Haven fall. And here's Mr. Dark now, very close to ripping thru the mystic barrier that keeps him from stepping over into Haven. Day by day Flycatcher's magic is failing him.

With Frau Totenkinder officially retired (fully deserving of her happy ending), Ozma has assumed leadership of the spooky witches what used to dwell on the 13th floor of Fabletown's Woodlands Hotel.

Well, it seems like every loyal Fables reader on the internet has been bashing the anticlimactic ending to the Dark Man arc, but I must admit that it was befitting. Not every single war ends with a great, showy battle. The noble sacrifice of one man is sometimes enough to warrant an end to even the greatest of conflicts, and this is certainly the case in the Dark Man arc's ending. Surprisingly, or perhaps not so, this book provides a respite from the seriousness of the last book by providing Pinocchio's vision of a 'super team' to defeat Mr. Dark and also a chapter on the misadventures of Bufkin, who journeys 'home' after many days of climbing a very tall tree. I would recommend this book, but I am such a huge fan of the series that my love for the art and the characters may diminish the faults of this book, which it undoubtedly has. For someone looking for an exciting end to the Dark Man arc, I suggest you borrow this book to read instead of buying it. However, for someone whose love of the series is already enough to warrant a purchase of the book, you will not be disappointed. The art is as good as ever, and Bill Willingham does not disappoint in his clever witticisms that populate every single Fables issue. Overall, a worthwhile read.

Format: Paperback
This is the 16th book in the Fables series. It was a decent installment in this series. The story surrounding Mister Dark comes to a climax and we learn a little more about Bufkin in the Office.

In this issue Ozma creates a Super Team to take on Mister Dark, but the North Wind gets to him first. The book also includes a little story about Bufkin the Monkey and a story about Sleeping Beauty.

Bufkin is returned to his homeland in this story and another storyline is started with Sleeping Beauty, but the main point of this installment is to take care of the Mister Dark storyline.

Ozma and Pinocchio decide to put together a Super Team to go and fight Mister Dark. They hold auditions and make silly looking skin-tight costumes for the group. All in all it is a little silly but also a bit ironic...you know...having fables in super hero suits.

Ozma and Pinnochio's plot is set astray when the North Wind gets ideas of his own.

The illustrations are in keeping with previous issues and I enjoyed them, they fit the tone of the story well. It was also nice to have the whole Mister Dark storyline finally tied up.

Overall a decent addition to the series. I enjoyed the way the Mister Dark story was tied up, but thought the whole Fables as super heroes thing was a bit goofy. I am intrigued to see where the Sleeping Beauty bit ends up going. Highly recommended to fans of fairy tale retellings and urban fantasy.

I'm not the type who loves to hate unless it was unforgivably terrible. Here, Mr. Dark Dies, eventually another will take his place but it's nice to see the effort the fabletown heroes put up. They know they have no chance of winning and they still prefer to fight, very nice indeed almost inspirational if I was still capable of being inspired. Definitely a short Saga spanning only 4 volumes cause I'm not counting volume 13.

While not the best in the series, SUPER TEAM was still a respectable installment. The Fables community is at the end of their rope, with the Dark Man threatening to overcome their last stronghold. Under the leadership of Ozma, and under the influence of Pinocchio, the leaders of Fabletown determine to make a final stand against the Dark Man as a troupe of comic-book-style superheroes. There are some amusing moments as the Super Team is interviewed, selected, and garbed, but these mostly just serve as a distraction from the very dangerous situations arising. The North Wind gets a whiff of his son's till-now secret child, Ghost, and cannot abide such a being living free. Beast's and Beauty's beautiful new baby may be more than it seems. Nurse Pratt finally gets what she wants from the Dark Man (and I'm sure we haven't seen the last of her). And all the while the final showdown with the Dark Man is nearing.

Some reviewers have complained of the rather sudden end to the Dark Man storyline, and I'll agree that it happened quickly and took me by surprise. At the same time, I was happy to see the end of the villain, and thought the way it was accomplished (both in the story, and by the writers) was great. Unexpected and imaginative, which is exactly what we should expect in Fables. While that thread is hopefully concluded, there is still a lot going on in the Fables universe, and I greatly anticipate the continued adventures. The next volume, Inherit the Wind, appears to focus on who will take on the mantle of the North Wind. That should be a nice change of pace for the story, hopefully getting back to more of a personal drama about our favorite fables.
