    I was already familiar with Jess Nevins through his exhaustive companion volumes to Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series of mini-series, so I was not at all surprised at how informative this look at the source material for Bill Willingham and Mark Buckingham's FABLES is. The layout makes the book seem a bit sparser than Nevins' LoEG Companions, but there is no less research involved. Nevins lays out, in just the right about of detail for a book like this, the antecedents of all of the major and almost all the minor characters to appear in FABLES' storied (and soon-to-end) run. The only characters missing are, I think, a handful of characters who only appeared in the spin-off JACK OF FABLES (and I could be wrong about that, I'd have to go back and re-read JoF). Nevins' research is accompanied by side-bar commentary from Willingham and Buckingham and plenty of art (cover and interior) from the comics. Of course, for someone who has never read the series there are a lot of spoilers for the storylines that run through issue 100 at least, so approach this book with the warning that Here There Be Spoilers. This is not an Introductory Volume, it's a Companion for those who have read the series already. I look forward to the inevitable 2nd edition after FABLES ends its run.
