One of my favorite comics, Fables, is going to be made into a TV series on ABC! If you haven’t read Fables, it’s a dark story about fairy tale characters (the protagonists are Snow White and the Big Bad Wolf) being driven out of their homes by a mysterious, demonic adversary and forced to flee to our world. The first two trades are a little slow because they mainly serve to introduce the cast, but it really gets going in the third one and become completely addictive. Do be warned that the writer does have an occasionally maddening conservative point of view, particularly regarding women, but it invades the plot rarely enough that I rant a bit and then still enjoy the story.
I really, really hope that ABC is bringing on good writers, for of course it could all go horribly wrong. Like the Watchmen movie probably did, since it’s being released in the doom-time of March and because they ELIMINATED the giant squid!
Thanks to Eric for the link and Martini-Corona for introducing me to Fables in the first place.
