Vertigo Comics has just released Issue #102 of Fables. This is the first of a 5-part story arc titled Super Team where the Fables community decides to form their own superhero group to fight outside threats like the menacing Mister Dark, their current nemesis still being held at bay by a forcefield. Based on Pinnochio's suggestion, Ozma(the head of the Fables magic-users)dons a superhero getup, and sets out to gather other Fables with "super-powers" to join their little team.
