Read in January, 2011

This comic was a brilliant read! The murder, the lies, the suspense, and the alteration of our favorite childhood fairytales twisted into 119 pages of comics.

The graphics had the classic comics drawing. Each characters had their own spice. They were all different from the characters we remember as our childhood fairytales. The plot was breath-taking; I was at the edge of my seat. When the murder was solved it had the moment of "Holy crap! I didn't expect that! Look at all the details! How could I not seen that!" Pure magic, kind of remind me of the Detective Conan comics where you just fan girls at the detective skills.
There were gory scenes and sexual contents but it won't be a good comics if there weren't any.

I'm pretty sure the show Once Upon A Time was sort of influenced by the Fables comics. But I personally enjoy Fables better because it is not cheesy and typical. It actually have substance.

I cannot wait until I get my hands on the second book. :)
