Man those games have sucked more and more since the first one. I could care less about them now, that's how bad they are.

I played 1 through 3... and I hated 1, thought 2 was ok and rage quit 3 because being a good person is penalized to much.

Used to follow this book religiously until it got.... I don't know, too busy for me. Maybe I'll pick up a later trade and try to get back into it when I run out of other stuff to read.

Perhaps you missed the point of a joke, being funny.

This sounded way cooler when I thought it was the game Fable...oh well, still interestingish article.

SPOILER ALERT

So, I absolutely loved Fables. Read it religiously, owned all the trades, it was great. Then they got around to accepting the Adversary into Fabletown, and I...I dunno. It lost its luster. Should I go back and pick it back up? I like that Willingham is going to give it an end. I generally prefer stories/arcs with definite ends, otherwise things just kind of ramble along and peter out. That's why the only non-limited-series I read is Batman, and even then only collected arcs.

This sentence

" It is the one creator-owned book that has lasted longer (it's already run for more than 10 years) and spun off into more mini-series than any other in the history of DC Entertainment.  "

should be taken behind the shed and put out of its misery.

That's actually where I stopped. You're not missing much, but I'll probably pick it up when it ends just to see how it ends.

Also: Shadowpact. BRING IT BACK, DC!!!

My geek fu is a little rusty, wasn't Constantine longer running?

I loved Fables, it's up there with Y The Last Man as what I press into the hands of anyone who hasn't read a comic book before. I'm a bit behind on the trades, but this just reminds me that C2E2 is coming up in Chicago and I need to start getting my buy list together.

I love the television show...

The "Great Fables Cross-Over" was lame but it picked up again after that. The Cubs are increasingly the focus and I don't know if I like it. I miss Tottenkinder. :(

I wait for the trades. But like ConConHead said, the Cubs have been the focus for the last two arcs--Inherit the Wind and Cubs in Toyland. The upcoming arc is going back to Bigby and Snow as well, but the real surprise of late has been Fairest. I've been reading the series since '02 and have stuck with it. It's one of the most consistently entertaining series out there.

I have a sketch on my wall he did for me long ago of his Elementals villains.

THAT

After we were brought huge open world RPGs like Oblivion, Fallout, Fallout New Vegas, Skyrim, etc.

We still have Fable, constricting you to travel on rails between towns and giving you dumb minigames to do.

... but you can get married in game :P

// knows the article isn't about that fable, but this thread IS now about that fable.

I played up to the 3rd one, and man that game blew. I don't even care to see what that kinect one is like.

Seconded. I passed on Fairest when it started, seemed too princess-girly. I was SO wrong. Probably better than Fables is right now.

Hellblazer wasn't creator owned, it's a DC property, which is why The Johns/Didiot team were able to kill the Vertigo book to put Constantine back into the DC Universe and Keanu him all up.

I'll have to grab the trades then.

I could never really get into Fables, the personalities of the characters seemed arbitrary compared to their mythic archtypes. I did find the Babe the Blue Ox pages in Jack hilarious, though.
