In some ways it’s like comparing apples and oranges, but I think that at this stage I’d enjoyed Fables a little more because (perhaps due to Willingham being able to play off their storybook character status that gives readers extra knowledge about them) the characters felt a little more developed. But they’re both good books in their own right, easily.
