This review is from: Fables TP Vol 01 Legends In Exile (Paperback)
I went into this comic after playing the very well known Wolf Among Us Xbox 360 game.As the game
is based around the same characters and set in the same world I had known some of the back story before reading. . . Please keep in mind though that the game doesn't follow the comics, even though there are some similarities throughout. Legends In Exile features the first 5 comics in the Fables series.
I really loved the world that Bill Willingham created in this book. As a lover of all things fairy tale, it was
really fun to see what our beloved squeaky clean characters would be like in the real word. Where Prince Charming is a huge man whore, detective Snow White is a strong independent woman and The Big Bad Wolf is the law enforcer.
The illustrations in this comic were colour, they mostly consisted of dull soft tones with the occasional brighter shade. I felt that the art work at times did seem a little dated, but It definitely didn't take away from the story. The font that they used was okay and I thought the amount of text in the book was perfect.
