book review: 1001 nights of snowfall

I may have to hand in my comic book nerd card, but I haven’t read Bill Willingham’s Fables. The series is about all these immortal fairy-tale characters living in modern New York and it’s supposed to be great. But there a re a lot of books and I feel like if I start buying them I won’t be able to stop. But 1001 Nights of Snowfall was a great book for me. It’s set a few hundred years before the present with Snow White playing Scheherazade and telling stories. Each story was illustrated by a different artist and they were generally pretty awesome tales about characters you know. Like how Snow White dealt with the dwarves afterwards and how it almost caused a major diplomatic incident, or what a good selfless king Cole was. And then in the end Snow White gives Scheherazade the idea to tell stories.
