Fables is a low fantasy graphic novel set in modern day New York that depicts the lives of famed fairy tale characters who walk amongst the mundane people of our world. Willingham skillfully weaves many classic and more obscure fairy tale characters into an engaging plot filled with mystery, murder, and grit..
Fables does a wonderful job telling the reimagined stories of our culture’s well loved fairy tales in a more mature and aged light. I’d highly recommend this series to readers who are looking for something very different and original compared to regular noir fiction.
Autumn rates this book 4/5 stars.
