Fables Vol. 1: Legends in Exile ($9.44) http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0064W667Y/hpb2-20/ASIN/B0064W667Y It was fun trying to pick out the characters from various fairy tales, the art was strong and the writing very good, and the story was fun to follow. - It's definitely a series I recommend to anyone who enjoys both graphic novels and fairy tales. - The story moves along fast enough that it doesn't feel like the exposition that it really is.
