365 Comics... 30: Fringe: Tales From The Fringe tpb (2011)

12 pages is not enough to tell one satisfying Fringe story, never mind twelve.  There is not one satisfying story in this collection.  Vignettes, asides, and set-ups a-plenty but nothing integral to the show.  The story that gets the closest to being necessary is the Nina-centric "Plan B" in which a young Nina has to choose between her unborn child and her cybernetic arm. Unfortunately, the story sets up a plot/character arc that never came to fruition in the show.  Overall the collection is irrelevant to the show and the myth building is hoaky.  Bleh, what a waste of potential.
