Now why oh why in this mixed-up world would we saddle an important series that has never had anything to do with Super Heroes with a title like “Super Team”? And why has that snotty little Pinocchio suddenly got it into his head that he needs to design tight-fitting costumes for a carefully selected team of Fables? In fact, why was the little brat caught looking over his own comic-book collection, mumbling things like, “We can call him Werewolf Man, and he can be The Golden Knight, and she can be called The Green Witch?”
Another great, although somewhat anticlimactic, volume.  Bigby continues to be one of my favorite characters in the entire series.  Ozma is growing on me.  I really enjoyed Mister Dark and suspect Nurse Spratt will become a major player soon.  The North Wind is the constant blowhard.  Blufkin’s adventures were fantastical enough.  I think that’s what keeps me reading: The character.  I love all the different and interesting characters Willingham has created.  They liven up the somewhat tired fairy tale stories.  I can’t wait to see what happens to the scattered Fables next.  And there was quite a few cliffhangers at the conclusion of Volume 16!  So exciting…
