Fables

 FABL   (Vertigo, 2002-Present)

™ and ©2002 Bill Willingham and DC Comics

Creator Bill Willingham (of Elementals fame) weaves a tale of murder and mayhem that reads a little like a cross between a fairy–tale and a prime–time soap opera. Deputy–Mayor Snow White and Chief–of–Security Bigby Wolf head the cast of characters of Fabletown, a secret society of fairy–tale and nursery–rhyme creatures, cast out of their homelands ages ago by a mysterious Adversary. Now the creatures are just trying to live their immortal lives in peace.

Of course, it’s not always easy for supposedly make–believe characters, especially the non–human ones, to blend into 21st–century America, hence the extremely structured organization led by Snow, Bigby, and their boss King Cole. But the Fables’ carefully maintained lives among the Mundanes are in danger of changing forever, when Snow’s sister, Rose Red, vanishes, an apparent victim of a brutal and extremely bloody crime.
