I'm not finished with this yet but I have one prejudice: I hate graphic novels where the interior artwork just isn't up to the story or cover. This is probably the main reason why I haven't finished this. So far the concept seems novel and the story is engaging, but I just can't get past the traditional comic book graphics for such a well reviewed series.

Okay, so I finally finished. I found the back story more interesting than the actual novel. ( )

Fables. Legends in Exile è un retelling molto carino di diverse fiabe in salsa gialla: le creature delle fiabe sono dovute scappare dal loro mondo per venirsi a nascondere nel nostro, dove cercano di adattarsi come possono.

Willingham riesce a imbastire una buona storia, non tanto per l’intreccio del mistero da risolvere, ma perché ci distrae così tanto con il fascino delle creature delle fiabe che senza neanche accorgersene ci ritroviamo a divorare pagine su pagine. Adesso sono molto curiosa di saperne di più di questa storia e ho la mezza idea di continuare la serie. ( )

The concept off these comics is really cool... old fairy tale characters hiding out in their own society modern day new york. Definitely not for kids, considering the language and also some sexual content. ( )
