Lo bueno de traer sólo la tablet, el Kindle y las lanas a la otra punta del mapa, es que puedo leer y tejer todo lo que no he podido este año por tener que trabajar tanto con el PC, y aparcar los videojuegos siempre que estoy fuera de casa.

Había olvidado por qué me enganché a Once Upon A Time, y es que me recordó un poquito a Fables. Releído el primer volumen, después de las dos primeras temporadas de la serie, sigo quedándome con Fables, que tiene ese punto de realismo ideal para echar por tierra los happily ever after que siempre intentan colarnos.

El 2014 pretendo retomar los cómics con más dedicación. Y toda la serie de Fables está en mis propósitos, porque lo vale. ( )

Very good! This is a series that I meant to get into for a long time, and it is well worth the read. Beautiful art as well. ( )

Fabulous! yes, pun intended.

Nicely written stories ... transporting characters from fairy tales to modern New York!

Premise being that a deadly enemy The Adversary" declared war on the various different different fairy-tale "universes" ... so that all the "fable-folk" become refugees, and escape to the mundane world.

I look forward to reading the rest of the series."

Not the most auspicious beginning ever. I like the concept - fairy tale characters living in exile in modern-day New York - and I know I read this first volume several years ago. It seems a bit obvious now why I didn't keep going: it just isn't that interesting a story. The first storyline is a murder mystery that feels more appropriate for a 1980s soap opera or a Columbo episode than a fantasy series. Knowing that I have several other volumes, I'm likely to continue, but the series needs to move out of interpersonal politics and into something that explores the Fables world at a more engaging level.
