Fables -- Volumes 1 and 2

I picked up Volume 1 after reading ABC is looking at turning this graphic series into a television series. The premise is very intriguing. All the characters you remember from childhood -- Snow White, Jack of Jack and the Beanstalk fame, the Big Bad Wolf -- are living in the United States having been driven from their homelands by The Adversary. I assume the story of the Adversary will remain an overarching one if the entire series. Meanwhile each volume deals with certain discreet incidents. There are 11 volumes so far, and I've read the first 2 and have 3 back at home. I'm looking forward to catching up with The Fables.
