Fables legacy with EverAfter, a new series taking place in the world of Bill Willingham and Mark Buckingham’s Eisner Award-winning series.
Launching in September, EverAfter: From the Pages of Fables will be a monthly release written by Matthew Sturges and Dave Justus, with artwork Travis Moore and covers by Tula Lotay, the team behind The Wolf Among Us (see “DC Digital Adds 'Wonder Woman '77'”).
Set in a post-Fables world where magic abounds, a global network of agents called The Shadow Players, made up of both Fable and mundane officers, polices the newly enchanted world. The series will see the return of Bo Peep, Peter Piper, Hansel, and Connor Wolf, as well as introducing new characters and villains.
“EverAfter is a spy thriller featuring a covert-ops team whose mission is to save this newly magical world from itself," explains co-writer Dave Justus. "The story has a uniquely Vertigo flair, filled with twists, double-crosses, and agents willing to give their lives for (fairy) queen and (goblin) country!”
"The terrific job Matt Sturges, Dave Justus, and Travis Moore did on the comic adaptations of The Wolf Among Us video games made them the perfect team to carry this new spin-off series," says Fables creator Bill Willingham. “There are some terrific surprises ahead in a world that is no longer mundy. What happens in a world that now knows about Fables and the sharp rise of magic in their midst? EverAfter is going to show us."
