24) Fables [1]: Legends in Exile, by Bill Willingham et al.

An impulse purchase in our local comics shop last weekend. But actually rather a neat story of characters from fairy tales living in contemporary Manhattan: Snow White and the Big Bad Wolf investigate the apparent murder of Rose Red, but it is a dark, very adult tale. New York is a bit fictional anyway, so to combine it with the exiles from the Land of Fable seems almost obvious once it has been done. I'll be looking out for the rest of this series.

I strongly recommend you keep reading Fables! It build up very nicely as it goes along.

I have nine volumes of Fablesso far, plus 1001 Nights of Snowfall, and two volumes so far of Jack of Fables. And everything else by Bill Willingham I can get my hands on. He's one of those writers that I will automatically buy anything I see with their name on. If you haven't already got them, I really recommend his The Sandman Presents: Taller Tales collection of stories from the Sandman canon.

All unreservedly commended to you. You won't be disappointed.
