1. The Good Prince: Fables #10 by Bill Willingham
Fairy tales are adult again — noirish, literary, ironic, and in graphic-novel form. When a new Fables collection comes out, I rush home, set it facedown on the coffee table, and reread the back cover blurb. Then I plan for time — I schedule enough time to read it through uninterrupted, though I'm just as likely to suddenly set it down to save for later, or flip back to the beginning to start afresh. I'm easily entertained and perpetually overexcited, it's true, but these are drastic measures even for me.
