I read the first couple issues of this series, then, due to financial reasons, had to put it aside. I recently read the graphic novels with the Men in Black and their flying-on-bed leader attacking the fables, and the one that followed, which seemed sad to me (The scene with Snow’s seventh child? Completely heart-rending).
So, how out of date am I on the series if I want to pick it up again?
And… (the big spoiler question) has The Adversary been ‘unmasked’ yet?
The graphic novels, IIRC, can be read in any order (much like the Sandman) graphic novels. Once you get the basic concept, there’s no real linear continuity between books. I read the second one (“Legends in Exile”, if I’m not mistaken) before the first one (no idea what it was called; it was about Rose Red faking her death.)
Jack has been ostracised from the Fable community for going to Hollywood and being a producer. He used his knowledge of Fables to create a trilogy of high grossing movies. No doubt he will return at some point later, angry that they abandoned him and took all his profits from the movies!
