The team has been chosen, and they're ready to fight Mister Dark in FABLES #104 "Super Team" part 3 (on sale today)! Meanwhile, Beauty and her decidedly unbeastly Beast are discovering all sorts of new things about their lovely daughter.
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.
In "Super Team" part 4, Ozma’s super team is ready to fight, but there’s a complication: Mister Dark isn’t the only one of the Great Powers on the warpath. The North Wind just blew into town with bad news for Bigby: His ghostly son must die. Talk about bad timing! Remember when Bigby promised his father that “The next time I come after you, I’ve made arrangements to make sure I’m able to Kill you”? That time is here! It’s father vs. son. Will Bigby survive one battle so he can help with the other?
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.
