Vertigo Launches Fables Spin-Off “Fairest”

As mentioned in this year’s SDCC, Vertigo‘s Fables will have a spin-off series entitled “Fairest” which will be initially done by Fables longtime writer Bill Willingham.

The book will tell the secret history of the various fairy tale princess running around the world of the “mundies” or the normal folks like you and me and the princesses that are on the other side.

For those keeping tabs, those characters would be Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Rose Red. Willingham will be onboard for the first story arc which will run for six issues together with artist Phil Jimenez. The duo would be tackling Briar Rose who was last seen being carried away by goblins in a recent issue of Fables.

Oh and the cover would be done by Adam Hughes no less.
