Even before the first issue of FABLES, there were stories to be told, shadowy avenues to explore, and lives hanging in the balance! Bigby Wolf has seen plenty in his time as Sheriff of Fabletown...but nothing can prepare him for this... It all starts with a simple domestic disturbance. But when Bigby learns that his old nemesis, the Woodsman who has an axe to grind, is part of the scene, things go downhill fast. And how will Bigby and Snow White keep their heads long enough to crack the case when they get caught up in a grisly murder mystery? FABLES- THE WOLF AMONG US is a gripping adaptation and expansion of the smash-hit video game from Telltale Games, and an official prequel to Bill Willingham's bestselling FABLES! Written by FABLES alum Matthew Sturges (JACK OF FABLES) and Dave Justus (HOUSE OF MYSTERY), with art by Stephen Sadowski (JSA), Shawn McManus (FABLES/FAIREST), and Travis Moore (JSA ALL STARS)! Collects the digital-first series FABLES- THE WOLF AMONG US #1-8.… (més)

For a graphic novel based on a video game I was a bit surprised that it wasn't completely obvious from the storyline, but clearly the writers of the video game did a decent job writing the narrative of the game for it to work so seamlessly in graphic novel format as well. Thus far I'm not sure where the story is going, as the murder mystery has too many suspects to pin down exactly who is running about Fabletown murdering Snow White look-a-likes, but my money is on Ichabod Crane. He's a creep of the worst sort, and he seems to have far too many machinations going on to be completely innocent! ( )

I've played TellTale games, but haven't played this one. Haven't read the other Fable comics.

I enjoy fairytale remixes, and this was decent. I wish more characters were less human, and liked Bigby best when he was his most wolfen. The story has some non-linear elements that I like, the art is clean but not particularly stylistic/inspired. ( )

Dark and sinister. Two perfect words to describe this Fables spinoff. This is taken place before Bigby and Snow get together. I enjoyed it throughout. A good storytelling in the past and in the present. Plus new characters such as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum!! I was thrown off a few times but in the end it didn't surprise me. Looking forward to seeing how the next one stacks up. ( )

The gritty tone of this book hearkens back to the first volume, Legends in Exile. I'm not as big a fan of the noir-style Fables as I am the epic-saga-style Fables, so I didn't enjoy this as much, but it was still nice revisiting old characters.

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

[b: The Wolf Among Us|23784080|Fables The Wolf Among Us #1|Matthew Sturges|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1418406313s/23784080.jpg|43399884] is a prequel of sorts to the [b: Fables|21348|Aesop's Fables|Aesop|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1389064715s/21348.jpg|868263] series. It takes place roughly 20 years prior to the events of the books, and fills in some of the gaps that later get explored in volumes such as [b: From Fabletown With Love|7219667|Cinderella, Vol. 1 From Fabletown with Love|Chris Roberson|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1375409235s/7219667.jpg|8002394], which is satisfying. However, [b: The Wolf Among Us|23784080|Fables The Wolf Among Us #1|Matthew Sturges|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1418406313s/23784080.jpg|43399884] could easily be enjoyed without any background in Fables, and vice versa, which is largely the strength of the book.

My interest in this was piqued largely by how much I enjoyed the TellTale game that brought about this series in the first place. The book borrows heavily from both the game's dialogue and art style, enough to be boring in the first 'chapter' or so, though the cheesy noir monologue is amusing. It comes into its own more as the story begins offering up flashbacks that differ from the gameplay and shakeup the pacing of the story.

If later volumes offer up more new content I will call this series a success. The art is strong, if reminiscent of the Sleepy Hollow comics, and the story entertaining. It was far better than [b: Werewolves of the Heartland|7619569|Fables Werewolves of the Heartland|Bill Willingham|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1375405928s/7619569.jpg|10092138], which I found far more difficult to get through.

So, while not as good as the Fables series that spawned it, I'd still call this a decent start to TWAU spinoff. Later volumes will reveal if it can manage to be as strong a comic series as it was a game.

Consider it a weak 4 stars so far. ( )
