Fables: The Wolf Among Us (2014)
2 Volumes, 48 Issues
Based on the best-selling video game Fables: The Wolf Among Us! Bigby Wolf used to break every law in the books. Now, as the sheriff of Fabletown-New York City's magically concealed neighborhood of mythical, legendary and fairy tale figures-he is the law, and keeping the streets safe for Fables and Mundanes alike is his beat. So when a beautiful princess-turned-prostitute is decapitated on his watch, Bigby must unleash the wolf within to catch the killer. There's certainly no shortage of suspects. Was it Mister Toad, whose wild ride has brought him to the end of the road? Was it the Woodsman, who's been a pain in the axe ever since little Red put on a hood and rode through the woods? Was it Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum, the towering twin goons-for-hire? Or maybe Grendel, the man-monster who's been causing trouble since before Beowulf could grow a beard? With the help of Snow White, his only friend, and Mayor Ichabod Crane, his longtime enemy, Bigby must crack the case soon. He may be the law, but some people can't wait to break him... Telltale Games' prequel to Bill Willingham's legendary series FABLES springs to comic book life in this first volume of FABLES: A WOLF AMONG US, written by Matthew Sturges and Dave Justus and illustrated by Steve Sadowski, Shawn McManus, Travis Moore and Eric Nguyen. Collects issues #1-7.
Bigby Wolf has been around for a good long while, and heÕs investigated pretty much every crime imaginable-but even an immortal Fable like him can still stumble across a once-in-a-lifetime case. As the sheriff of the magical New York City neighborhood known as Fabletown, Bigby is hot on the trail of the killer who beheaded a princess and then unleashed a horde of gangsters and monsters to cover his tracks. But even as Bigby reels from attempts on his life and watches his trail of suspects go cold, an old evil reappears to wreak havoc once more. Is the urban legend known as Bloody Mary to blame? Or is she just one more tortured pawn in an even bigger game, with an even more crooked opponent waiting to make his move? The acclaimed adaptation of the hit mystery from Telltale Games-inspired by Bill WillinghamÕs best-selling Vertigo series FABLES-concludes in this second volume of FABLES: THE WOLF AMONG US, written by Matthew Sturges and Dave Justus and featuring a powerful pack of artists, including Travis Moore, Shawn McManus, Eric Nguyen and Steve Sadowski. Collects issues #8-16.
The brutal showdown with the Woodsman continues as Bigby Wolf attempts to find out why the crazed axeman is involved with the mysterious Fable Faith. While Faith confesses to nothing, Bigby still finds himself enamored, unknowingly plunging himself into a vile and sadistic conspiracy involving the Fables community.
When the Adversary conquered the lands of legends, the inhabitants were forced into exile. They form a secret society, a hidden enclave in modern-day New York. Bill Willingham's award-winning "fractured fairy tale" series explores the world of these beloved fables...one that exists within our own.
