Fables Vol. 1 - The Greatest Smelling Read in Comics

Why do Comics smell so good?
Possibly my geekiest column entry ever.

Long term comic fans will know what I mean, there is a certain smell about comics, especially '70's / '80's comics with there newspaper quality stock. Comics these days don't smell as good as they used to.
In fact, Top Cow comics smell downright awful, which is another reason not to read them.

This column was sparked after I was flicking through the Fables vol. 1 tpb, which as well as being a great read smells awesome.

Or maybe only sleeping 4 hours a night for the last few nights is starting to get to me.

You know, I wish I could turn back the clock and have started reading this in singles. As it stands it's far too expensive to go back and buy the beginning 12 issues.
I'll be sticking with my trades for it I guess.
Plus at least that way I get the little extra prose stories that Willingham likes to write.
