With Vol. 15 of the New York Times best-selling series FABLES on sale this week I thought it’d be great to catch up with writer Bill Willingham to discuss this incredibly vast and magical world he’s created.
I approached the writing of my story for Fables #100 with considerable trepidation. I had, more by accident than design, written a strip for House of Mystery a year earlier, to which Bill Willingham had added the finishing touches, but this would be my first time writing solo for DC. Add to that the fact that I hadn't written prose professionally before and, as you can imagine, the whole thing felt pretty daunting.
With the spectacular 100th issue of FABLES coming soon, we are excited to unveil the full contents of this special, 100-page issue. The issue kicks off with a 62-page lead story written by series creator Bill Willingham, with art by Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha and Andrew Pepoy Following that is a 10-page prose story written by Mark Buckingham with illustrations by Bill Willingham. Also in this issue are: • A set of do-it-yourself FABLES puppet theater illustrated by Mark Buckingham
