The award-winning Vertigo series continues with a new introduction by former DC Comics President and Publisher Paul Levitz, and a special sketchbook section by series artist Mark Buckingham.
Imagine that all the characters from the world’s most beloved storybooks were real—real, and living among us, with all of their powers intact. How would they cope with life in our mundane, un-magical reality?
The answer can be found in FABLES, Bill Willingham’s celebrated reimagining of the venerable fairy tale canon. From Snow White and the Big Bad Wolf to Goldilocks and Little Boy Blue, the folk tales of old are reborn here as exiles living in the magically camouflaged New York City neighborhood of Fabletown.
FABLES: THE DELUXE EDITION BOOK TWELVE includes the worlds-shaking events of “Super Team” and “Inherit the Wind,” as well as the pivotal tales “The Ascent” and “All in a Single Night” from FABLES #101-113.
