Fables: Graphic Novel Series

Status: Bookseller Picks

Before anyone skims past at the mention of a graphic novel let me tell you that I had never read one either until I was introduced to the Fables series by a fellow bookseller and now I am hooked.


Fables is a great introduction into the world of graphic novels for anyone wishing to dive into the world but unsure of what to choose from out of the hundreds of titles in your local B&N. It is the story of our favorite fairy tale characters who have been thrown out of their fairy tale world and forced into hiding in Manhattan where they form their own Fable world.


This series is great because it revisits characters you have loved since childhood and gives you the chance to see what may have happened after your favorite fairy tale ended.  It is fun and easy to read, making it the perfect way to start your graphic novel collection.

I'm not entirely new to the world of graphic novels, but I wasn't familiar with this series and it sounds right up my alley! Thanks for this recommendation!
