Cinderella and Dorothy Gale gone 80s by Shelly Bond

When the proposal was first approved for CINDERELLA: FABLES ARE FOREVER (issue #3 on sale this Wednesday), I asked artist extraordinaire Shawn McManus to send me some rough character sketches of Cinderella and Dorothy in their Big 80s Garb. And I stressed rough as in “super rough, sketchbook style.” So of course, he sent me this amazing finished piece...complete with fishnet capris!!

A Unified Theory of Monsters by Chris Roberson

I grew up reading old monster comics and watching the classic black-and-white Universal monster movies, and loving all of them. But it always bugged me a little that they seemed to exist in a world in which there were so many different WAYS to become a monster. Bitten by a werewolf under a full moon, or bitten by a vampire, or cobbled together from a bunch of dead bodies… there was a completely different set of rules at work for every monster, a completely different rationale. But why SHOULD a vampire’s bite turn you into a vampire, and why do vampires crave blood?

Chris Roberson talks CINDERELLA and Soviet Spies and Reveals the Cover of #5

In Cinderella: Fables Are Forever, the second miniseries featuring Fabletown’s number one spy, we learn how Cinderella travelled to the Soviet Union in the days of the Cold War, investigating rumors of a “Shadow Fabletown” of Soviet Fables. There, she met another secret agent Fable, who would go on to be her greatest nemesis (and if you haven’t read Cinderella: Fables Are Forever #1, I won’t spoil the identity of the nemesis here!).


In the first issue of the new mini-series CINDERELLA: FABLES ARE FOREVER by the amazing team who brought you CINDERELLA: FROM FABLETOWN WITH LOVE, Chris Roberson and artist Shawn McManus, Cindy heads to freezing cold Russia and she’s wearing a bikini. (Awesome cover by Chrissie Zullo, right?) There she encounters her nemesis who goes by the codename Silverslipper and you’re never gonna believe who it is.

On The Ledge with Chris Roberson

Don’t tell him I said this, but I sometimes think of Bill Willingham as my very own Fairy Godmother. A few years ago, with a dozen novels to my name and not a dime in the bank, facing the prospect of returning to the dreaded DAY JOB, I got a call from Bill one day, offering me the chance to write a miniseries featuring Cinderella, Fabletown’s greatest spy. Of course I said “YES!” right away. Isn’t that what you do when wishes are granted?
