About the Author
Born in 1966 in the English seaside town of Clevedon, Mark Buckingham has worked in comics professionally for the past twenty years. In addition to illustrating all of Neil Gaiman's run on the post-Alan Moore Miracleman in the early 1990s, Buckingham contributed inks to The Sandman and its related miniseries Death: The High Cost of Living and Death: The Time of Your Life as well as working on various other titles for Vertigo and Marvel through the end of the decade. In 2002 he took over as the penciller for Bill Willingham's Fables, which has gone on to become one of the most popular and critically acclaimed Vertigo titles of the new millennium. When not in Clevedon, Buckingham can be found with his wife Irma in the Asturias region of northern Spain.
Lan Medina is the first Filipino artist to win the prestigious Eisner Award in recognition for his work on Fables. He has worked on international comic books including Aria and Stone, plus Mutant X for Marvel.

The first book is a great way to move your adventure from Wolf Among Us to Fables.
The quality of the book itself is great, it is printed greatly. You can have some troubles from time to time to see the center between pages, but there's nothing to look for most of the times, just some decorative parts.
These books series are all designed in the same way, so this Fables Deluxe collection will look absolutely great on your shelf.
If you're new to this universe, I would personally recomend to complete the game (The Wolf Among Us) first and then buy a book. I think, you won't be disappointed!
Side note: the deluxe editions are great value because they not only come with the main series issues but also side stories from the same universe. There are A LOT of Fables side stories and the inclusion in the deluxe editions makes it not only less overwhelming but they tend to be placed chronologically. So while the side stories are not required to understand the main arcs, the deluxe editions place them in a way that makes it easy to understand the events that are happening elsewhere in the universe at the same time.
In summary, you have a fun story with recognizable characters, decent artwork and a great collection for a great price (I think 9-10 issues).

The story itself is also a fantastic and enjoyable read for any comic fans, and those who enjoy a good twist on their old fabled bed time story characters.
I actually got introduced to Fables through the Tell Tale Games A Wolf Among Us and instantly had to have more and went straight online and bought this edition after completing Episode 5, and now it's safe to say I'm hooked! Looking forward to the second volume deluxe edition!
