Fables #100 to feature puppets, board game and new art by Willingham

Fables #100

Vertigo has released some details on the big 100th anniversary issue of their long-running Fables series. Those of you who read previous issues know that one of the Fables characters has challenged the evil Mister Dark to a duel, and it sounds like that duel will make up the bulk (62 pages, by Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha and Andrew Pepoy) of the $10 issue. But it will also include:

• A 10-page prose story written by Buckingham and drawn by Willingham. Although Willingham is known primarily as a writer nowadays, he used to both write and draw his creation, The Elementals. Plus he worked for TSR as an artist before that, drawing the covers to Dungeons & Dragons books and modules.

• A set of do-it-yourself Fables puppet theater illustrated by Buckingham

• A three-page story written by Willingham with art by Cinderlla artist Chrissie Zullo

• A three-page story written by Willingham with art by Joao Ruas

• A two-page Fables board game, illustrated by Buckingham, with game rules by Willingham

• Four celebrity “Burning Questions” stories, all written by Willingham, featuring questions from actors who are also Fables fans, with art by Adam Hughes, J.H. Williams III and Dave Johnson.

The 100-page square-bound book arrives in shops Dec. 8.



“Those of you who read subsequent issues…”

Yeah, not sure what you’re going for there but “subsequent” is definitely not the right word.

Yup, you’re right.

100 pages for $10. Hot damn!

Squarebound, eh? Ads or no?

giant style or prestige style?

It will be normal size. I hope they collect the other stories in the trades…do you think? I don’t wanna pay $10 for only a 100 pages. Plus so many only read the trades it’s just a big spoiler. the board game is also a 24 x 36″ poster on the DC site. Doesn’t look very involved at all…
