Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall by Bill Willingham

Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall by Bill Willingham

Illustrated by Many Fabulous Artists

DC Comics, New York, 2006

Borrowed from the library.

Wow! I have always enjoyed the Fables graphic novels but this one has to be my favorite so far.  The premise?  Snow White as Shahrazad, telling tales to the ruling Sultan.

The stories are varied.  Some from fairy tales, some from mythology.  All illustrated by different artists and illustrators including Charles Vess, James Jean, Mark Buckingham, Jill Thompson and Tara McPherson.  For mature readers, this one is brilliant.

A great choise for a graphic novel read for the Once Upon A Time IV challenge!

    Sounds interesting. Will have to check it out.

  2. This is perfect for OUaT, yes! I’m glad you enjoyed it.

  3. I wish Bill Willingham would do more standalones in the Fables world! There are a lot of Fables whose past lives I’d like to know more about, especially if they got illustrated by Charles Vess and Jill Thompson. :)

  4. I really liked this one too, especially since I read it not long after The Good Prince. *Sniffle!*

    I agree with Jenny – more standalones would be excellent; I really enjoyed Peter & Max for just that reason.
