Fable Comics edited by Chris Duffy | Book Review

Why Did I Read Fable Comics?

Fable Comics edited by Chris Duffy was another readathon pick. I got through it SO quickly. It’s basically a book that I picked out because it was short and I knew it would be a quick read that would keep me motivated as I participated in the readathon. Also, I just really love reading new takes on old stories, and I grew up reading fables. So, I thought this book would have something interesting to offer as far as the different fables go.

What’s The Story Here?

Chris Duffy’s Fable Comics features twenty eight fables – not just Aesop’s fables, but ones from all over with illustrations by twenty six different artists. There’s not a whole lot of story here – the comics vary in length from one page to several pages. Each fable has a moral. The different artists add their own takes on the fables.

How Did I Like Fable Comics?

Overall, I feel like this book is a good way to test out different graphic novel artists that you weren’t quite sure about. It’s a great sampling of twenty six different artists – enough to get a good taste for sure. Also Fable Comics is a very quick read. I mean, you can get through it in like an hour, so if you have a challenge where the number of books you read is important, this is a good read to get that number up. In addition, it’s pretty decently written too. I mean, each different story held my attention. I did not zone out or anything while reading this book. There’s all kinds of different art styles within too. I thought this was a very strong graphic novel anthology.

  1. The drawings look so nice, not too simple, not too much details. My 8-years-old niece would love this!
