Much like [b:Saga, Vol. 1|15704307|Saga, Vol. 1|Brian K. Vaughan|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1486028947l/15704307._SY75_.jpg|19113524], Fables has been on my list to read for the longest time. I have a soft spot for genre mashups, so the idea of taking Fairy Tales and having them alive and well in a hidden corner of our real world? Wonderful!

[b:Fables, Vol. 1: Legends in Exile|21326|Fables, Vol. 1 Legends in Exile|Bill Willingham|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1375392441l/21326._SY75_.jpg|1138855] introduces us to the setting and the characters, taking the guise of a classic murder mystery and throwing a few Fairy Tale specific wrenches in along the way.

I love the art style--more traditional comic book style than Saga was, the characters--they're all the names you'd know and love, but often done in a much more gritty 'real' style, and I lvoe the story. The Fables have their own problems to deal with along with those in the real world.

That being said, it is *not* a particularly child friendly story. Right from the beginning, it's chock full of adult language, nudity, and violence. It's a very adult take on what were once children's cautionary tales. You have been warned.

Overall, it's a great introduction to a fascinating world. It looks like each volume has it's own internal story with an overarching plot across the entire series. I look forward to it!

A few individual parts I loved for various reasons (here be minor spoilers!):



Once upon a time... Fables in New York. I think I fell in love with the idea in this very first frame.



Pinocchio problems... but more seriously, now we know that the Fables are more or less immortal and somewhat unchanging. And in some cases, that kind of sucks.



Snow White, Director of Operations. I love it.



Ah, yup. Prince Charming is having sex with Mundys (this world's word for non-Fables).



So... basically the Tardis? I wonder if stories like that are in this world?



The Big Bad Wolf going by Bigby, being the town Sheriff, and Snow White basically learning how to be a murderer? A wonderful scene.



SNICKER SNACK!



What I was saying about the backstory. There's a *lot* of depth here, but nothing that we have to know about just yet. Just a reason the Fables are here and a plot to stretch across 20 stories.



Oh man. Don't date your boss.



I do love the title cards for the chapters. A wonderfully dry sense of humor. Bluebeard (in the back) is one of my favorite characters, although I'm not yet sure if he's going to be a/the villain or get a redemption arc... Why not both!



Yup. It's a whodunit!



*le twist*

I mean, once you saw what sort of tale this was, it was one of the obvious answers. But it's still pretty exciting. ( )

This isn’t my first rodeo with reimagined fairytales (in fact I’ve read almost too many of them), but Willingham’s Fables is an instant classic. Introducing the story of a group of characters based on those from legends and lore from around the world through the tried and true trope of a murder mystery quietly sets the tone for exploring an intricately developed world (set of worlds, actually) and a unique cast of characters. Leading the pack are Bigby Wolf (the Big Bad Wolf, now turned sheriff of the Fabletown community), Snow White (former princess, and deputy Mayor), and Rose Red (Snow’s sister, and unfortunate murder victim), but we are also introduced briefly to a bevy of characters who will all stick around to play their part in the further issues of the comic. Rose Red’s murder is, in true style, not actually a murder, but a double-fake meant to get her out of trouble - cementing her character as a ne’er-do-well opposite to her mayoral sister, and prefacing many conflicts to come over the course of the Fabletown epic. Behind the surface plot, Willingham carefully sketches the background of the story, explaining why the Fables are now in exile in the human world and painting a larger story that will wind up being a 20+ graphic novel series. For a first time reader the intricacies of the story and setting are almost too much if you’re not used to this kind of epic, but it is these complexities that make this story remain a classic and well-worth multiple readings. Who are we going to spot in issue one in brief, who will later end up a hero in the war against the Adversary? I already know, but I can’t wait to find out all over again! ( )

I had hoped that Fables would offer something other than The Wolf Among Us's cynical capitalist murder mystery, but it didn't impress me. ( )

Forgot how much I enjoyed this the last time. Always a good fluff read. ( )

What if various fairy tale characters -- like Cinderella, or the Big Bad Wolf, or the creepy Bluebeard -- were actually living in hiding in modern day New York? The world building and feeling of immersion here is excellent. The plot is also quite good. The dialogue, though... Characters frequently suffer from "I'm only saying this so you can say something snappy or expository in retort" syndrome, the banter even beyond that is often clunky and forced, and (though this is a much smaller issue than the first two) the author's political views shine through a tiny bit too clearly -- I am a firm believer in divorcing author from work, but that's under the assumption the author will not actively try to place his opinions in every character's mindset.

I've many years previously read almost all of Fables, possibly all of it entirely, I can't recall (which is in itself a bit damning). My hazy memory of it is that it has some great notions and plot turns here and there, but overall, it gets steadily weaker, rarely again capturing the experience of this first volume. Sometimes it did. But not often enough for me to have a real desire to re-read the whole of it. This first volume, though, with its murder mystery core and its clear delight in showing us this world for the first time, this works as a standalone story, and I find it is well worth rereading, even with the sometimes groan-worthy dialogue. I'm not likely ever to get around to buying and rereading the rest of "Fables", but this first volume, I can easily see myself enjoying revising once a decade or so. Which is pretty high praise, when you think of how many comics I own. ( )
