The Alien Corn (The Canadians jPinocchio 3 StarsSo this Graphic Novel was very reminiscent of Once Upon a Time for me Our fairy tale creatures have been thrown into modern day world and basicallyust have to deal with it Awesome I love that shit Beyond being our introduction to the characters within the world some personalities love that shit Beyond being introduction to the characters within the world and some personalities maybe don t exactly meet expectations this first volume is a murder mystery Rose Red has disappeared leaving behind an apartment splattered with blood and a big old mess Our unlikely Sherlock and Holmes Duo is B Wolfe and Snow This volume was so much fun guys I thoroughly enjoyed getting to see how all these characters were getting on in the big wide world of norms Everyone Dude what s with the three stars thenVampire Ninja I didn t care for the art at all shrugs This seems like a solid start to a series The fairy tale characters homeland has been taken over by an enemy called The Adversary and have fled to the mundane world we live in Snow White is a politician who works for the Mayor King Cole and The Big Bad Wolf is the sheriffSnow White s sister Rose Red has apparently been murdered and the crime must be solved The solving of the crime and big reveal wasn t really anything special but there is a great premise set up with a lot of potential The characters we have all heard of are tweaked and often the result is really funnyI think my favorite line was with Pinocchio He s at the Fabletown yearly gala and complains about having to always come to the ball because he s looking for the fairy who turned him into a real boy I m over three centuries old and I still haven t gone through puberty I want to grow up I want my balls to drop and I want to get laidHAHARose Red the party girlBluebeard who spars with Cinderella in one scenePrince Charming is a mooching womanizer Overall I enjoyed this and plan to continue I d been wondering why lately I ve had such bad luck with books Almost everything I picked up went back down again and than Half Of What I of what I through and reviewed was a disappointment After reading this first volume of the Fables series it hit me all of a sudden Tatiana Or lack of Tatiana and her excellent book recommending skills Thanks for the rec T I knew you d get it right The Fables series has been one I ve wanted to start since I first hea.
