to read makes our speaking English good.
Fables, Vol. 1: Legends in Exile - James Jean, Craig Hamilton, Lan Medina, Steve Leialoha, Bill Willingham Not even going to try to REALLY review Fables; I just have issues (ha!) reviewing comics. I love the premise behind this series -- fairy tale shake-ups are my thing -- and got a huge kick out of Legends in Exile. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

I'm not sure how the three TPBs I own (gifts!) sat on my shelf so long without me ripping through them. My penchant for delayed gratification, probably.

Hated to do it, but I had to break it to Rabbit that she wasn't ready for Fables yet when she tried to sneak off with this volume; she's become a comics fiend and was very disappointed that there were comics in the house, but she couldn't read them. Poor Rabbit. Time to go browsing recs again.
