When a savage creature known only as the Adversary conquered the fabled lands of legends and fairy tales, all of the infamous inhabitants of folklore were forced into exile. Disguised among the "mundys," their name for normal citizens of modern-day New York, these magical characters created their own secret society that they call Fabletown. From their exclusive luxury apartment buildings on Manhattan's Upper West Side, these creatures of legend must fight for their survival in the new world. Fables is the winner of 14 Eisner Awards and is one of the most enduring Vertigo titles ever. Here, in this new, 10th anniversary edition, is a newly colored 8-page story from the Fables prose work Peter & Max: A Fables Novel, as well as a beautiful new cover from series artist Mark Buckingham.

0.0 Fables, Vol. 1: Legends in Exile
Hold da op en skuffelse. Halvvejs og giver op. Historien er kedelig og tegningerne grimme. Slet ikke mig.

2.0 Should have been so good
I wanted so badly to love this. I absolutely expected to. I've heard great things about Fables, especially with the popularity (and similarity) of the show Once Upon a Time. I love updated fairy tales. I love reconfigured tales. Heck, I love graphic novels.And I could get into the (rather OUaT-esque...

Holy crapballs, did I love this. I've been hearing how great the series is for a L O N G time from my trusted reader-friends, so I have no idea why I haven't picked up it before now. Guess what, folks? They were right. It's freaking amazing. I love the use of well-known characters in surprising new ...
