This is probably my favorite of the trade comics for Fables. Bigby (the Big Bad Wolf) is an amazing, full-blown character. His gravitas was almost palpable through the visuals and his development. Quite the bad-ass with many admirable points to balance out (and at times supercede) his bad points. The writing and artistry of this series is super great. The stories are intricate, layered, and have many twists and surprising turns. This writer knows his historical/cultural tall tales and he weaves well-known characters into real-worldish events. The people, animal-people, and monsters are all vibrant and truly believable for being so entirely fantasy-based. I ate this stuff up. So did my wife.
