So Snow White is finally getting an arc of FABLES named after her? That’s too bad, since it always means the title character is about to be put through the ringer. And she has to go through these trials and tribulations alone, because Bigby is off learning to drive (which leads to its own harrowing implications). But she’s made of pretty stern stuff, our Snow, and she’s never been a wilting flower in the face of adversity, so let’s see what she’s made of.

  1. I’m very tempted to jump back on with the focus back onto Snow

  2. I’ve been waiting to see more of Snow. She’s an amazing character and very happy to see “what she’s made of.”

  3. i know we as comics fans throw the “Best book” moniker around but could this be the best comic being published? I certainly can’t think of single book that has been as consistently great as Fables.

    • I hear you. Fables isn’t what I’d normally call my favorite, but none of my current favorites (Saga, The Massive, Fatale) have held up for nearly as long as Fables. Hopefully the franchise can survive the apparent shrinking of Vertigo.

    • Fables was the first non-superhero book I read and is now one of the few books that I have to read each month. It is also really easy to get my friends to read this book as well.

    • @baykid: I agree. Fabels isn’t the book I necessarily look forward to the most each month, but at the end of every arc I always find myself saying “Holy shit that was awesome I can’t wait to see what happens next!” Fables doesn’t give me butterflies like Saga or Manhattan Projects but I think that is only because I’ve been reading it for so long.

      @samoraiblack: DMZ and Fables are the books that got me back into reading comics after a decade or more hiatus. Totally agree about getting your friends to read it. Whenever someone asks me for a comic, whether they are a regular comic reader or not, I always give them Fables. Despite its length, I think it is the best comic to give to a new comic reader.

  4. Very excited about this new story, good issue

  5. Can anyone remind me what the deal was between Beast and The Blue Fairy? I don’t remember that at all, and I don’t want to dig through my boxes.

  6. Yes! More Fables gushing! This book seems highly underrated to me. I am surprised because everyone knows the characters from nursery rhymes, bedtime stories, Disney etc. Take those those pantheon (pantheons?) and put them in real world situations and you have what I consider a perfect comic book utilizing all the medium has to offer. I would even go so far as to say this would make a great TV show! ….. Oh, right, nevermind.
