Issue #50 after the Brief Lives arcThree other issues appearing in Fables Reflections published as the Convergence story arc are also single issue short stories Convergence appeared between the A Game of You and Brief Lives story arcs It contains Issues #38 The Hunt #39 Soft Places and #40 The Parliament of RooksThe collection also includes the Sandman Special The Song of Orpheus retelling the Greek myth of Orpheus and a brief piece from a Vertigo promotional comic. I read a lot of graphic novels Asterix Tintin etc as a child but this was probably my first adult graphic novelI was seriously impressed Despite the fact that it was a comic book and I generally expect to see simple writing in those the calibre of the writing was very high and the stories were uite intellectual and thought provoking The graphics were great too And as a history lover seeing all the famous historical characters in this book was really uite coolJust one teensy little gripe in one of the earlier stories the cursive writing was extremely hard to read and I have excellent eyesight I am definitely going to read the other books in the series Speaking of which I started the series on Volume 6 because I received this volume for my birthday thank you Shirley 3 but I don t think that hurt my enjoyment of the book in any way
