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.

If you happen to be in Chicago this weekend and are attending C2E2 do stop by the DC Comics booth say “Hi,” pick up some awesome freebies and get something signed by your favorite creators.
And don’t forget to hit the panels. Here’s the schedule for Vertigo:
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?
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?
Well, well, well, Mr. Willingham—I didn’t see it coming. As most of you know by now, Bufkin is one of my favorite characters from FABLES. He’s the super cute flying monkey that’s been stuck in the lost Business Office for quite some time with Frankie and the Magic Mirror. In this fantastic 101st issue, penciled by Eric Shanower, we find out what they’re up to and, like I said in the headline, you’re not gonna believe your eyes.
Here’s an exclusive first look inside:
From the New York Times best-selling, Hugo Award-nominated, Eisner Award winning comic book series FABLES comes PETER & MAX: A FABLES NOVEL, written by Bill Willingham, with spot illustrations by Steve Leialoha.
