Item Details

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 normal citizens of modern-day New York, these magical characters have created their own peaceful and secret society within an exclusive luxury apartment building called Fabletown. But when Snow White's party-girl sister, Rose Red, is apparently murdered, it is up to Fabletown's sheriff, a reformed and pardoned Big Bad Wolf, to determine if the killer is Bluebeard, Rose's ex-lover and notorious wife killer, or Jack, her current live-in boyfriend and former beanstalk-climber.

This was a fun take on fables of old. The art work is very good. The story is based on a clever premise, but the outcome of the mystery was obvious.

This and walking dead are the only two series that I can think of that even 16 volumes over a 100 issues later it doesn't feel like it ever needs to end. Volume 16 super team is a bit lighthearted and then it slams you with a woah moment. If you're new to comics and are looking for book to read you can't go wrong with Fables.
