Lots of buzzing today about ABC ordering a pilot based on the comic Fables. I’ve only read a bit of Fables, but I liked it, and I think it could work as a series, if done correctly (but can’t we say that about most adaptations?).
I do think the TV format is better suited to comics than movies — after all, both are serial. Stories can develop over time and everything doesn’t need to be packed into two hours. Still, they’re a commitment and I think we’ve all drifted away from a TV series after a while. Of course, we do that with comic book series, too.
I’d like to see this work so I’m going to hope for the best
