FAIREST VOL. 1: WIDE AWAKE
In this first FAIREST TP, collecting issues #1-7, Sleeping Beauty has been awakened again by true love’s kiss. But the thief Ali Baba doesn’t seem a likely...
Okay, so Sleeping Beauty has been awakened again by true love's kiss. But hold on! The thief Ali Baba doesn't seem a likely candidate for knowing true love from a day-old cruller. So how did this kiss work? We proudly present thrills and chills – and since the Snow Queen is involved, we do mean chills – along with mathematical proof of what does and does not constitute true love.
One Sleeping Beauty, one prince of thieves and a small imp add up to one huge moving target for our Snow Queen.
Hot off his work on INFINITE CRISIS, writer/artist Phil Jimenez delivers an epic saga — combining the dramatic setup and ensemble cast of Lost with the fantasy of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and mind-bending technology of The Matrix. BOOK ONE of OTHERWORLD takes readers on an exciting adventure filled with widescreen action that's sexy, smart and unlike anything Vertigo has done before!
The concluding chapter of “Wide Awake”! Jonah Panghammer, bottle imp extraordinaire, had a plan: Ali Baba would find a treasure so rich he could give up thieving.
New York Times best-selling, award-winning creator Bill Willingham presents a new series starring the female FABLES. Balancing horror, humor and adventure, FAIREST explores the secret histories of Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Cinderella, The Snow Queen, Thumbelina, Snow White, Rose Red and others.
What is it with the Snow Queen and her love of/addiction to stories? And how does that little blue bottle imp plan to take advantage of her weakness?
We want this third issue to be really big, so let's have Briar Rose and Ali Baba captured by the Snow Queen! And let's throw in seven good fairy godmothers and one really, really bad one. Let's have dire curses and desperate fights and comic asides. Let's show the consequences of attempting a second uninvited kiss. Basically let's have everything in this but the kitchen sink. No, wait – let's throw the kitchen sink in too!
