Bill Willingham and Mark Buckingham may have brought Fables to an end. But this is DC Vertigo, where nothing ever ends.
Which is why creators of Fables: The Wolf Among Us, Matthew Sturges, Dave Justus and Travis Moore will be launching Everafter: From The Pages Of Fables, a new monthly series from Vertigo, with covers from Tula Lotay.
Dave Justus is quoted as saying "Everafter is a spy thriller featuring a covert-ops team whose mission is to save this newly magical world from itself,… 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!"
In a post-FABLES world where magic abounds, it can be wielded for the greater good or used to sow the ideas of anarchy and terrorism. Enter The Shadow Players, a global network of agents—both Fable and mundane—tasked with policing a newly enchanted world and protecting humanity from itself. The series will feature fan-favorite characters, including Bo Peep, Peter Piper, Hansel, and Connor Wolf, as well as exciting new characters and a terrifying new villain.
And it does seem to have occurred with the blessing of 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."
