I d been wondering why lately I ve had such bad luck with books Almost everything I picked up went back down again andthan half of what I read through and reviewed was a disappointment After reading this first volume of the Fables series, it hit me all of a sudden Tatiana Or lack of Tatiana and her excellent book recommending skills Thanks for the rec, T, I knew you d get it right The Fables series has been one I ve wanted to start since I first heard of it Adult retellings of cl I d been wondering why lately I ve had such bad luck with books Almost everything I picked up went back down again andthan half of what I read through and reviewed was a disappointment After reading this first volume of the Fables series, it hit me all of a sudden Tatiana Or lack of Tatiana and her excellent book recommending skills Thanks for the rec, T, I knew you d get it right The Fables series has been one I ve wanted to start since I first heard of it Adult retellings of classic fairytales with a few touches of sex, violence and humour SOLD However, I talked myself out of it about a year ago when I foolishly picked up a random volume nine, I believe and didn t get it at all Perhaps volume nine happens to be a bad apple in an otherwise excellent bunch, or perhaps that particular volume wasn t made to be read as a standalone IMO, the first three can be enjoyed individually , whatever the reason, I found myself putting off a series which I d previously been certain I d love I ve learned my lesson and am now breezing through these fantastic volumes I ll be starting number four soon and becomingandaddicted to the characters, the world and the humour.Will you enjoy this Personally, I think it depends on whether the humour is your cup of tea I also don t believe it would be fair to sell this series as merely a comedy each volume is very different, some are darker and gorier than others, some are primarily mysteries, others not so much But the humour is behind it all and is what, for me, turns this into somethingthan a regular urban fantasy, fairytale retelling It s what makes these characters memorable and there s not much I likethan a funny villain everyone has a sense of humour here I, for one, am finding itandfunny with every installment I read.Another thing is the artwork, which I like a lot in this series The art has to receive a mention when you re reading a graphic novel because it inevitably affects how you read the story and how you view the characters I tend to prefer realistic drawings, as opposed to arty, scrawly messes that are supposed to set some kind of tone Give me this instead any day This first volume opens with the discovery of Rose Red s destroyed apartment The place has been turned on its head and blood is splattered on every surface Bigby Wolf and Snow White must investigate can all that blood really be Rose Red s Is she dead Who would have a reason to hurt her This first story is enjoyable and, in my opinion, they just keep getting better.I just want to take this opportunity to also recommend the TV show Once Upon A Time Originally, they were planning to make a show out of Fables but they modified it a bit and Once Upon A Time came out the other end And it s a favourite of mine you should check it out Lovely lovely lovely. I absolutely adore this series I ve read through it at least 3 times at this point Bill Willingham hit on an ingenious idea What if the characters from fairy tales were real And they are currently outcasts on our world The first arc Legends in Exile introduces us to our main group of characters It s a murder mystery Someone has killed Rose Red and the town Fables have to get to the bottom of what happened.I love the reinvention of all these old fables and fairy tales They were often quit I absolutely adore this series I ve read through it at least 3 times at this point Bill Willingham hit

Willingham doesn t shy away from that grimness as all The book is filled with adult themes of sex, betrayal, and violence This seems like a solid start to a series The fairy tale characters homeland has been taken over by an enemy called The Adversary and have fled to the mundane world we live in Snow White is a politician who works for the Mayor, King Cole, and The Big Bad Wolf is the sheriff.Snow White s sister, Rose Red, has apparently been murdered and the crime must be solved The solving of the crime and big reveal wasn t really anything special, but there is a great premise

solving of the crime and big reveal wasn t really anything special, but there is a great premise set up with a lot of potential The characters we have all heard of are tweaked and often the result is really funny.I think my favorite line was with Pinocchio He s at the Fabletown yearly gala and complains about having to always come to the ball because he s looking for the fairy who turned him into a real boy I m over three centuries old and I still haven t gone through puberty I want to grow up, I want my balls to drop, and I want to get laid HAHARose Red, the party girl Bluebeard, who spars with Cinderella in one scene Prince Charming is a mooching womanizer Overall, I enjoyed this and plan to continue 3 StarsSo this Graphic Novel was very reminiscent of Once Upon a Time for me Our fairy tale creatures have been thrown into modern day world and basically just have to deal with it Awesome I love that shit Beyond being our introduction to the characters within the world, and some personalities that maybe don t exactly meet expectations, this first volume is a murder mystery Rose Red has disappeared, leaving behind an apartment splattered with blood and a big old mess Our

want in poster form, on my bedroom wall.This volume was a tiny bit lacking in the characterization department, but overall I was very entertained the whole way through and I zipped through this thing I enjoyed reading about the specific characters and how their lives have shifted since their happily ever afters Fairy tale legends live alongside regular New Yorkers called Mundanes ever since their kingdom was destroyed by an unknown and faceless enemy called The Adversary It was kinda like a darker, better written this But without the angst And the plotholes And the crazy convoluted plots that didn t make sense And DEFINITELY without these two.Who spoiler alert completely ruined the show for me.Anywhoo, these characters know about their magic, know about their homeland Most of them lost their kingdoms and their riches and their titles and now have to figure out a way to live among us normal folk Snow White is the mayor and the Big Bad Wolf is the sheriff And that s all fine and dandy because after their worlds were destroyed, there was this great big grand amnesty thing and all the past crimes were forgiven, and in light of working together against the adversary, villains became heroes And some heroes became villains.Or maybe heroes and villains embody various shades of gray That s better anyway.Snow White s sister, Rose Red, appears to have been murdered, and the big bad wolf otherwise known as Bigby is on the case Snow insists on tagging along These two reminded me a bit ofExcept Snow was a little biton the melodramatic side rather than the cute quirky side She cried all the time Like every other frame It got on my nerves.And like EVERY fairytale couple is divorced Snow and Charming, Cinderella and her prince The only ones who seem to be giving it a good run are beauty and the beast And even they are far from the couple of the year.I enjoyed the stellar storytelling chops from Willingham but also from the artist Lan Medina A lot I enjoyed the subtle hints into their true natures.I also enjoyed much of the humor strewn throughout It made me laugh.I also enjoyed the needed bit of backstory we got into what really happened at The Homeland.Poor little piggies They never seem to catch a break.The thing lacking for me was there wasn t really a character I liked all that much Bigby has some potential, as does Bluebeard, but really, I found a lot of them shallow and whiny and pretentious I m hoping that future volumes can flesh out individual backstories because I want.So Gibsy shall live to see the sun rise and fall at least onetime But I still have twovolumes to read before I make any decisions I m still watching you Gibsy Legends in Exile by Bill Willingham and a team of illustrators begin the Fables series of adult graphic novels This is
