Has anyone here read Fables?

I love the series. Willingham did an amazing job here. If you love myth meets modernity - this is your bag.

    I've read it, and it's pretty darn good. Managing to add a little depth to mythical characters is usually something Any author seems to find ridiculously hard, and yet I find myself actually believing that i'm looking at people, not stories. As well as that, Fables encompasses both truly epic storylines as well as interesting little details that keep you interested end-to-end. It's an A-Class book, recommended to pretty much anybody

    I've enjoyed it quite a bit, but then again I'm a fan of folk tales and mythology so this would naturally appeal to me. The story lines are exciting, the writing is crisp, and both the humor and action are skillfully executed.

    Spoiler: show
    Too bad the owners of Peter Pan wouldn't let him be the bad guy, though Gepetto did add some interesting angles to the story.
