Today DC Entertainment launched its first-ever Digital First Vertigo series, FABLES: THE WOLF AMONG US. The series is based on the critically-acclaimed episodic game series from Telltale Games licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Similar to the game, the story is a prequel to Bill Willingham’s award-winning Vertigo comic FABLES and follows Bigby, sheriff of Fabletown, on a murder investigation. The new, dark story features fan-favorite characters Snow White, Mister Toad and the Woodsman, and explores many new characters that were first introduced in the game.
“It has been a thrill to spend time in the FABLES world again,” stated cowriter Matthew Sturges. “We’ve used FABLES: THE WOLF AMONG US as an opportunity to really dive into some of the nuance of Bill's world that he never got a chance to explore, and that the video game uncovered. Writing in the digital-first format has allowed us do things that we could never do in a print-only title.”
Cowriter Dave Justus continued, “In true FABLES style, we've taken the story you know, added all sorts of pieces you had no idea about, and shaken the contents violently just before handing it to you to open, right in your face. It has been an honor to be part of Vertigo's debut Digital First series.”
FABLES: THE WOLF AMONG is written by Matthew Sturges (JACK OF FABLES) and Dave Justus (HOUSE OF MYSTERY) with art by Steve Sadowski (FAIREST), Travis Moore (JSA ALL-STARS), and Shawn McManus (FABLES, FAIREST). The cover artist for the series is Chrissie Zullo (FAIREST: IN ALL THE LAND). FABLES: THE WOLF AMONG US will be released on Wednesdays and available for download on the DC Comics App, Readdcentertainment.com, comiXology.com, Google Play, Kindle Store, Nook Store, iBooks, and iVerse ComicsPLUS. Each print issue will contain three digital chapters with the first issue available on January 14, 2015.
