Fable Comics

Fable ComicsBy Various Authors, Edited by Chris Duffy

Fables have an important place in society for they teach lessons on integrity, honesty, cooperation, and more. In this book, many graphic novel authors have contributed modern takes on old fables. Though I enjoyed the illustrations, I was often disappointed in the stories. At times it was difficult to catch the lesson in the fable, like in “The Dog and His Reflection” and “The Dolphins, The Whales and The Sprat.” Some though, like “The Thief and The Watch Dog”, are very good. Overall, the book offers a new way to introduce fables to children of all ages.
