FABLES TV Commercial

When’s the last time you saw a TV commercial for a book? How about a graphic novel? Word is that a commercial for the Fables comic has been airing during Doctor Who on BBC America. How cool is that? I’m all for anything that raises awareness about books and gets people reading.

Thanks to an awesome recommendation from Sandie, I recently began reading Fables and I just love it. If you’re not familiar with the comic, check out the publisher’s summary for Fables, Volume 1 and the TV commercial below:

When a savage creature known only as the Adversary conquered the fabled lands of legends and fairy tales, all of the infamous inhabitants of folklore were forced into exile. Disguised among the normal citizens of modern-day New York, these magical characters have created their own peaceful and secret society within an exclusive luxury apartment building called Fabletown. But when Snow White’s party-girl sister, Rose Red, is apparently murdered, it is up to Fabletown’s sheriff, a reformed and pardoned Big Bad Wolf, to determine if the killer is Bluebeard, Rose’s ex-lover and notorious wife killer, or Jack, her current live-in boyfriend and former beanstalk-climber.
