Hi, I decided to do some homework and read some Fables before this game comes out. So far I've read the first three trades (arcs, really. The trades seem to do a great job of compiling storylines in easy to pick up morsels) and can say that I like it. There's another thread on this forum which breaks down every storyline and spoiler tags it all, bu I don't think that does a good job of answering one important question: What should we read?
Thus far, it's all good reading. My recommendation is for the first arc "Legends in Exile." This mystery manages to introduce the reader to the world of Fables and fit in a surprising amount of backstory.
What would you say is not only good reading, but important to the narrative/understanding the world/characters/whatever and recommend to others?
