Vertigo Book Club: Finally Getting to Fables

When I started here at DC (back in 2012, for anyone keeping score), we had just relaunched the Vertigo website and were building out a section for FABLES. The series was still ongoing at that time and had become one of Vertigo’s flagship books. Only SANDMAN had as much name recognition and only HELLBLAZER had more longevity. As the content editor for Vertigo, I was responsible for creating material for this new section of the site.

The problem was, I’d never read it.

5.2 Reasons it's a Great Time to be a Fables Fan

Hey folks, we’re back for the second week running with a special Vertigo edition of 5.2 Reasons. If you haven’t read it yet, be sure to check out last week’s Sandman column right here. But this week we’ve left the world of dreams and entered Fabletown. So, sit back, relax, and get ready for a little tale we like to call "The Fables fable."

CINDERELLA and more FABLES covers revealed!

Chrissie Zullo is back as the cover artist of the 2nd miniseries featuring our favorite secret-agent, CINDERELLA: FABLES ARE FOREVER. Here’s the cover of issue #1: cifaf_cv1 All I can say is WOW! And here's a preliminary cover for JACK OF FABLES #50:

FABLES . . . after Cindy

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.

Behind-The-Scenes with Brian Bolland

People (well, especially people non artistically inclined like myself), are often curious as to how the artist got from a blank sheet of paper to the finished product. Well, GRAPHIC CONTENT is happy to bring you behind-the-scenes of Brian Bolland's cover to JACK OF FABLES #39. What started as a pencil sketch, gets inked, added to, more detailed and brought to life with color. Simple, right? [gallery link="file"]

Is Jack Coming Back?

Well, he can't stay away from JACK OF FABLES forever can he? #36, "Jack 'n' Apes" features an untold tale of Jack's past drawn by artist Tony Akins and written by guest-scripter and novelist Chris Roberson (who is also writing this Fall's highly anticipated mini-series CINDERELLA: From Fabletown With Love—about a woman with a secret identity who loves shoes as much as I do) with cover by Brian Bolland. Catch a glimpse below. [gallery link="file" columns="2"]
