Fables #100 Preview

Posted by Grey Sunday, December 12, 2010

Back in 2002, who would have known that Bill Willingham's sleeper epic comic series would turned out to be one of Vertigo's longest-running series, and one of its most well-received ever?

And here we are, near the end of 2010 and the one hundredth issue of Fables is out.

And in a big way.

In commemoration of the anniversary, the 100th issue will come in a lavish 100-page square-bound book, with the main story (by Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha and Andrew Pepoy) taking up 62 pages. And here's the rest of the goodies you can find, courtesy of Robot 6:

• 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.

And here's a four-page-preview of the issue, courtesy of Comic Book Resources.




The description of the issue in Vertigo's official solicitation:

FABLES #100

Written by BILL WILLINGHAM and MARK BUCKINGHAM; Art by MARK BUCKINGHAM, BILL WILLINGHAM, CHRISSIE ZULLO, JOAO RUAS and STEVE LEIALOHA; Cover by JOAO RUAS

In this fantastic 100-page issue, it's time to put an end to Mister Dark once and for all, and time for the Fables to return home to Fabletown. For that to happen, one of the Fables agrees to take on the Dark Man in single combat! It's big, it's epic, and if you live in New York City, you may want to take a quick vacation when this issue comes out, because things are going to get wrecked!

In addition to the larger-than-life main story, we have a FABLES prose story written by Mark Buckingham and illustrated by Bill Willingham! We have an All-Star Burning Questions section that will knock your socks off (seriously, innocent people are going to lose some socks here). We have a puppet theatre created by the unstoppably creative Mark Buckingham, a FABLES board game, sequential stories painted by Chrissie Zullo and Joao Ruas, and even more surprises in this square-bound behemoth celebrating this award-winning Vertigo series!
