Read Fairest #15 this week. Kind of confused on the timeline for when this story takes place. It would have to be before the invasion of the homeland, unless it's bringing back a character thought dead in that arc. Good story though, and looking forward to seeing where it goes.
Then there's Fairest... the 1st arc was clear... it happened pretty much in time with Fables (since the car-witch is in the current story), but the 2nd one, who knows? Since Jack is involved, it seems to be from a while ago, but nothing really places it.
I haven't read 15 yet (I do the DCBS thing, so I'll not have it for a couple weeks), but yeah, I'm thinking we might need a timeline soon :)
Also if the guy wanting to chat about Snow and her role is still around, speak up.. I'd be happy to discuss as well :D
Time passed differently in Discardia so only about 10 days has passed for Snow et al. whereas years have gone by for Therese.
I believe Rapunzel's story in Fairest takes place before even the invasion of Fabletown by the wooden soldiers.

I agree that time passed differently, but Therese coming home definitely takes place AFTER the current story with Brandish... otherwise, why would Bigby have still been searching?
Does anybody here collect the Fables deluxe editions? If yes, how many feel that we are continuously getting lesser content for the same price? For instance, the sixth deluxe edition contained only six issues and it cost thirty bucks.
its weird that they made the last two Deluxe Editions (thats out) have partial arcs.
Deluxe Edition 4 was TPB Vol 5 minus issue 22. 6 issues worth.
Deluxe Edition 5 was TPB Vol 6 and the first half of TPB Vol 7. 12 issues worth.
Deluxe Edition 6 was the second half of TPB Vol 7 and all of TPB Vol 8. 6 issues worth.
Deluxe Edition 7 will be TPB Vol 9 plus issue issue 64. 9 issues worth.
So i think it's all based on how much issues are in a story arcs.
As to why they did DE5 & 6 that way, i do not know, maybe someone messed up. They could of had DE5 only contain TBP Vol 6 (which would make it 8 issues) and DE6 have TPB Vols 7-8 (which would make it 10 issues)
I dont know LOL...

The solicitation for the 8th Deluxe Edition states that it will contain #60-63, 65-69 which is actually an issue less than the 10th trade collection. But the page count is given as 232 while the TPB containing #60-69 is 240. So, even with one less issue, it's almost close to the page count of the TPB. Wonder what extra content they're going to include this time...
Just read the latest issue this weekend. Again not sure how this is going to turn out good, especially with the Bigby developement. And they at least tied up the timeline issues with the last couple of pages.
I'm interested in checking out Fables or one of its tie-ins. I don't really know much about it but I want to try it out. Is it best to try it out with the first arc of Fables or with the Prequel mini-series or something else?
