You getting into Fables? I sort of bailed on it, but I did enjoy it.

i just finished the first trade and it was unique/interesting at least... not totally blown away but was entertained. how far did you get? did it start to fall apart or what? should i get the 2nd volume?

Fables Rocks! It picks up steam the more volumes you're into it, until about the Wooden Soldier/Battle in Fabletown trade (I'm not sure of the title or volume number, but it's a hefty 7 issue long one) but it remains an excellent book that consistently changes the status quo with a HUGE cast of characters. The first volume is a little too entrenched in Detective fiction to be as great as the rest of the volumes, and definitely get the rest

thanks peter... glad to hear that. i'll pick up volume 2 at some point and go from there. i love a lot of variety in my comics so this is keeping my interest so far (at least because it's unique). so fables doesn't keep to the detective style? i was under the impression after volume one that this was going to be the fables stee?

I stalled out on the third volume, but I think that is sort of like quitting Powers on Vol 3, not really fair to the rest of the trades (so to speak). Peter's comments have actually resparked my interest, I'll get back on the Fables train shortly. It is a very unique comic.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
