This was my first foray into graphic novels though this volume seemed to be more graphic short stories. It was a nice introduction to this medium as it is a series of stories each with a different artist. The stories are fantastical and very imaginative most of which are based on classic fairy tales frequently telling the story behind the story.
I very much enjoyed the artwork especially James Jean, Derek Kirk Kim, Tara McPherson, and Esao Andrews. Definitely whet my appetite to read more of the Fables series of which this book is an installment.
