Throughout the day I’m going to reveal covers to three graphic novels that are coming out this Fall. The first, FABLES: WEREWOLVES OF THE HEARTLAND by Bill Willingham and artists Jim Fern and Craig Hamilton, follows Bigby Wolf as he searches for a new home for Fabletown. That’s right, Bigby is getting his own book…where he is the center of attention! Check out the cover [Please note: The cover is not final]:
I didn’t say signed by whom, did I? But now that you’re here and excited there’s no use procrastinating. I’m happy to offer the chance to win a copy of FABLES Deluxe Volume 1 signed by none other than author BILL WILLINGHAM. That’s right. He stopped by the Vertigo offices last week and that got us thinking. FABLES has a huge year coming, so wouldn’t it be nice to get folks ready for 2010 with this beautiful hardcover edition of the issues that got it all started? And, well, we’re in the holiday spirit and that’s all about giving, right?
When we last saw the Fables, Gepetto was out in the woods far from the Farm and my favorite winged monkey, Bufkin, hadn’t given up on defeating Baba Yaga. Is the Adversary up to his old tricks? Will this be the end for Bufkin and Frank? And what’s Ozma got up her sleeve? Find out in FABLES #91.
In 2009, you traveled to the Black Forest and were exposed to the power of Frost and Fire with PETER & MAX, learned more about the witches of the 13th floor in FABLES, followed Jack Frost as he learns the hero trade in JACK OF FABLES, and have embarked on a spy mission worthy of 007 with Cindy in CINDERELLA: From Fabletown With Love.
"Combining dark humor, suspense and intrigue, Bill Willingham's masterwork is like the Sondheim musical dramedy Into the Woods — if the book were written by Alan Moore. If you haven't read Fables yet, this is the perfect opportunity to start catching up." Who’s offering these kind words about FABLES Deluxe Vol. 1?
In the idyllic kingdom of Haven, the Frog Bombers are playing the Gobtown Crushers for the pennant. The problem? The star player of the winning team has been accused of committing murder during the victory celebrations. Now, Flycatcher (a.k.a. King Ambrose) has to judge the trial for which the penalty for the guilty is death. FABLES #92 and #93 will feature art by David Lapham (Young Liars, Silverfish)! Check out the cover of issue #92:
