Fables (Deluxe)
Fables (Deluxe) | Bill Willingham
14 posts | 15 read | 4 to read
As Snow White slowly recovers from a bullet to the brain, she and Bigby spend a lot of time in each other's company. But when they announce that they'll be vacationing together, all of Fabletown is shocked...and not just because Snow White has never taken a holiday before. The twosome's sudden departure from New York City -- and the deadly peril they're about to fall into -- is surely no match for the ruthless enemy who's still lurking in the back woods. This volume also includes the special FABLES: THE LAST CASTLE, we learn of the great war that forced Bigby Wolf, Prince Charming and Bluebeard to leave their homeland in search of a safe haven. As the battle rages, we meet a mysterious woman in red, and learn why Snow White's deputy, Little Boy Blue, only plays the blues on his trumpet.

@Ijuliel Q. what's the diff bt comics, manga, anime, graphic novels, etc

2/6: I always think of comics to mean anything marvel and DC and “American“ in style. When I say American I'm also thinking 'back in the day'. Nowadays the styles are more diverse. But anything that looks to imitate how real people look I dub as comics. Panels are also styled in boxes and are read L to R

I don't read comics bc I don't like this style

ljuliel See, these I‘d be familiar with. As a kid, they had comics in the drugstore downtown. I probably couldn‘t see the print to read them now , but I used to like them. Archie and Jughead was my favorite. 😁. 1mo
Crimson613 @ljuliel i used to work at a library so those titles are familiar but i never read comics like these until i was maybe in college and that's only because i played this game called The Wolf Among Us. I didn't really like the comic (Fables) bc of the art and format which sucks bc the game made it out to be a really cool story! 4w

North Wind is the father of Bigby Wolf, Fabletown's sheriff. Needless to say, their family is rather dysfunctional.

I hate to be a negative nancy but I hated this for being so ironically *mundane* Serves me right for trying this before another Sandman.

Swe_Eva Not in the Sandman field at all. 🤣 It is my favorite series to reread when I'm in bed with a cold and can't concentrate on anything else. 👍 2y
Purrsistently @Swe_Eva aw, I‘m glad it can comfort you on blehky days 2y

I have my stack ready for the #letsgetgraphicweeklongmarathon ! I am planning on finishing Fables, a series I've been savoring for several months. Also, Saga is so addictive I waited for the release of volume 8 before I read volume 7.

hlgreenfield I love Fables!! Slowly making my way through the whole story! 2y
ephemeralwaltz I'm interested in Sex Criminals! 2y
readordierachel That is a beautiful bunch of comics 😍 2y

Saturday plans. It's been a month since I've read Fables. It'll be great to be back in that world.

brennahawleycraig Love that series! 2y
hlgreenfield It's sooo good! I'm slowly making my way through it all as well. 2y
vivastory @brennahawleycraig It's shaping up to be one of the best series I've read 2y

vivastory @hlgreenfield I haven't read it, but it's been favorably compared to Fables 2y
brennahawleycraig It was my first-ever series! As suggested, Unwritten is fabulous as well. 2y
vivastory @brennahawleycraig I'm glad to hear you praise Unwritten. It sounds intriguing. Have you read Locke & Key? 2y
brennahawleycraig @vivastory No! I think it's my next series. I've kind of run out of new stuff...loved Monstress, but everything else I've read was ages ago. 2y
vivastory @brennahawleycraig you're in for a real treat. It's one of my favorites. Do you read Saga? 2y
brennahawleycraig @vivastory yes!!! I just reread the whole thing over the fourth. Soooo good. Other favorites are Sandman, American Vampire, Bone (❤️), Lumberjanes. If you haven't read them, both Delilah Dirks are AMAZING! What are your other favorites? 2y
vivastory @brennahawleycraig Adding Delilah Dirks to TBR. I love Alan Moore, especially League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Also love Bitch Planet. Charles Burns is great, although disturbing. I loved his book 2y
vivastory @brennahawleycraig I've only read one Craig Thompson book, but it has some of the greatest art work I've ever seen 2y
vivastory @brennahawleycraig Also Marjani Satrapi's work. Especially Chicken with Plums & 2y
brennahawleycraig Oh yes Bitch Planet! I always come out of those wanting to change the world. I enjoyed Persepolis as well. Adding everything else to my TBR. I love comics! 2y
hlgreenfield @vivastory I haven't! Just added it to my tbr. 2y

Fables gets better with each volume. I read volume 4 last night & it easily features some of the greatest art & storytelling I've ever read in a graphic novel.

vivastory @ReadOrDieRachel Are you a fan? 2y
ChasingOm I have the final trade that I can't bring myself to read because I don't want it to be over. 😭 2y
vivastory @ChasingOm Have you read the spin-offs? 2y
See All 14 Comments
ChasingOm I read the first of "Fairest" and liked it. Wasn't a huge fan of "Jack." "From Cinderella with Love" was pretty good too, although I read that one a long time ago... 2y
readordierachel I read the first volume a few years ago and have been meaning to revisit. It's a great concept. 2y
vivastory @ReadOrDieRachel It gets better. It really takes off in the third volume. 2y
readordierachel You've inspired me. I just checked out volumes 2, 3, and 4 on Hoopla :) 2y
Leniverse So... I checked the library and they have vol. 10. Only vol. 10. Why do they do that? 🙄 2y
vivastory @Leniverse That makes me feel very thankful for my library. Sorry to hear that. 2y
ValerieAndBooks I started reading this a few years ago but got stalled when I was trying to catch up on the Jack of Fables series. I did not like Jack! I think I left off at Fables 13? Should get back to it again! 2y
vivastory @ValerieAndBooks There are quite a few volumes. I'm not sure if I'll read any of the spin-offs, at least right now. 2y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk Spin-offs wise the Jack books are just meh, but the Cinderella spy books are great! This series keeps up it's quality through the end. (edited) 2y
vivastory @TobeyTheScavengerMonk I'm so glad to hear that the quality is consistent. I read volume 6 on Saturday. Along with volume 4, it has been my favorite so far. The art & the story are astonishing. I will definitely check out the Cinderella spin-off when I finish. Thanks for the recommendation! 2y

I've always loved #mythology, but my true love when it comes to reading is fractured fairy tales. I'm building my collection, but I've read every trade of Willingham's "Fables" but the last two -- I don't want the series to end! ?#aprilbookshowers

TobeyTheScavengerMonk Fables is the best! That last book is wild in both content and format. 3y

So I am not usually one to read comic books, but my boyfriend's dad lent me this one and I am loving it so far! finished the first volume and about to go to the second! I may ask him to lend me the whole collection! this is pretty much a darker, funnier Once Upon a Time ( in fact since the comic is way older than the show - the show kinda rips off the comic tbh). definitely recommend
