No, this isn’t a FABLES 101 primer about all that is wonderful and fantastic about the world(s) of FABLES. But it is set to be a terrific issue as we check in with Bufkin (one of my favorite characters), Frankie and Magic Mirror in the lost Business Office to see what they’ve been up to since battling Baba Yaga. FABLES 101 is written by the fabulous Bill Willingham with art by Eric Shanower and Richard Friend.

When editor Shelly Bond called me and asked me if I was up for doing the art on FABLES 99, I think I answered so fast that I betrayed the laws of time, the sound that exited my mouth came out in quantum mode and bit its own tail. It sounded more like a “wow” followed by an “oh-wow”… like in way-beyond-Mach10-speed, and everything around me blurred and I started hearing Bob Dylan’s “The Man in Me” from The Big Lebowski. … “lalalala… ooooh, what a wonderful feeeeeeling…”
If you think that Rose Red is truly ready to suit up, grab a deadly weapon and save the day, you may be in for a rude awakening. Or you may be absolutely right. Regardless, heads will roll, blood will spill and Snow White and Rose Red, the loveliest sisters in all the lands, will be forever changed in the conclusion of the Rose Red arc.
So, if you have one, put on your blue scarf, take a look inside issue #98 and pick up a copy tomorrow!
