FABLES panels at San Diego Comic Con are always full of excitement. Last year Bill wrote a special one page story illustrated by Mark Buckingham which was handed out exclusively to those in attendance. Well, what’s in store for FABLES fans this year? FABLES writer extraordinaire, Bill Willingham gives us a hint:
This fall is chock full of FABLES fun. In September the conclusion to the Rose Red arc with issue #98. Will she get out of bed, suit up and save the day or are we going to be let down? Either way, heads will roll, blood will spill and sisters Snow White and Rose Red will be changed forever. Don't ya just love that blue scarf?
We all know the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, right? Well, this month’s issue of FABLES takes the fairy tale a step further. Issue #96 explores why and how Snow got separated from her sister Rose Red, came to live with the dwarves, got poisoned and ended up with that gigolo Prince Charming all while Rose lost her “spark.” Take a walk down memory lane on Wednesday!
That's right. This weekend catch the first ever TV commercial for the best-selling comic book series FABLES! It will debut this Saturday, May 29th during the DOCTOR WHO and STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION “WHO-LIDAY WEEKEND TREK” marathon on BBC America. The marathon starts on Saturday at 6:00 p.m. EST and runs through Monday, May 31st at 7:00 p.m. EST. Don't miss it!
Over on THE SOURCE, The DCU is celebrating 75 years of DC Comics by revealing a bunch of amazing variant covers. But these aren’t just any variant covers, they are of some of the most classic and iconic images from DC’s illustrious history re-imagined by some of the biggest names in the industry.
Throughout the day I’m going to reveal covers to three graphic novels that are coming out this Fall. The first, FABLES: WEREWOLVES OF THE HEARTLAND by Bill Willingham and artists Jim Fern and Craig Hamilton, follows Bigby Wolf as he searches for a new home for Fabletown. That’s right, Bigby is getting his own book…where he is the center of attention! Check out the cover [Please note: The cover is not final]:
I didn’t say signed by whom, did I? But now that you’re here and excited there’s no use procrastinating. I’m happy to offer the chance to win a copy of FABLES Deluxe Volume 1 signed by none other than author BILL WILLINGHAM. That’s right. He stopped by the Vertigo offices last week and that got us thinking. FABLES has a huge year coming, so wouldn’t it be nice to get folks ready for 2010 with this beautiful hardcover edition of the issues that got it all started? And, well, we’re in the holiday spirit and that’s all about giving, right?
