Each year at the Vertigo Fables panel, the creators of the series hand out a one page original story.  Vertigo’s Graphic Content blog posted the image, and a bit of important news from Bill Willingham about how this one pager affects the overall story line.

In the past two years we’ve handed out one-page Fables comics at the San Diego show that were basically throwaway gag pages. For the first time we decided to go the other way and do a serious, very dramatic Fables story, one that has far-reaching consequences for the series to follow. This one-page comic hints at what the second hundred issues of Fables will all be about.”

    It is pretty ominous – only hope the series will go that far to see it play out.

    I love how this team can write so much in so few frames.
