Written by Bill Willingham; Art by Mark Buckingham and Steve Leialoha; Cover by James Jean
In part 1 of an all-new, 4-part story, meet Freddy and Mouse, two local rogues who just want to get along and perhaps turn a bit of profit in the post-war, topsy-turvy world. Meanwhile, in Fabletown, a new political group forms called the Society of Seconds, and what they want doesn’t seem very reasonable at all. Titled “Life in a Headless Empire,” this issue is the first step in the next great FABLES epic!
