Fables: Arabian Nights (and Days)

Just went downstairs to Tech Services and there was a bag of newly processed graphic novels and manga awaiting my arrival. One title that I've been looking forward to reading is Bill Willingham's Fables: Arabian Nights (and Days). Just published in 2006 by Vertigo, the edgier part of DC Comics, this book brings together issues 42 through 47 of the comic book series.

Since I haven't read it yet, I'll use the description in the library's catalog: Now that they know the identity of the Adversary, Fabletown prepares to defend itself. That means forming alliances with others who are unconquered by the Adversary's legions, but the arrival of a delegations from the Arabian Homelands shows them how tricky this can prove to be.

If you've never read Fables, now's your chance. Bill Willingham and the rest of the folks who put this book together are tremendous and really creative. Let me know what you think once you get a chance to read it, ok?
