Video game adaptation of Bill Willingham’s Fables from Vertigo, The Wolf Among Us, was a smash hit from TellTale Games when it released in the fall of 2013. Fans having been waiting for the second episode of the story to release and next week they will get their wish, but now everyone will have to suffice with a trailer.
Telltale Games, the people that brought us Lee and Clementine’s story in The Walking Dead game last year, have another comic franchise to work with now, Fables. The first game, The Wolf Among Us, is a prequel to the comic franchise detailing some of Bigby Wolf’s ealier cases as the sheriff of Fabletown. The first trailer is out, so watch away.

Vertigo title Fables has had a history of preproduction hell when it comes to adaptations for other medium. But now there’s hope. Not only are we getting a Fables video game from TellTale Games, but Warner Bros. finally has a writer/director/producer team put together for a film. Take the jump to find out who might finally put a Fables film together for us.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bill Willingham’s long running, and much loved, Fables series is headed to the big screen, and it has Nikolaj Arcel attached to direct.
Press Release The Baltimore Comic-Con is pleased to announce the addition of Fables scribe, Bill Willingham to the growing line-up of creators attending this year’s show. The 14th annual show will take place the weekend of September 7-8, 2013 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
Despite common, non-comic reader misconception, comics are more than just underwear perverts boxing with villains. Exhibit A is this title: Fables, which is near the top of my list of comics to recommend to comic book newbs. But after 122 issues (has it really been ten years?) is there a bottom to the public domain well from which Bill Willingham is drawing? Or can he re-contextualize the classic tales ad infinitum? Broaden your mind, after the jump.
Or – “I Used To Call My Boss The Ice Queen…” The adventures of Briar Rose and Ali Baba have only begun, but I’m already prepared to be enjoying this title for years, much as the mother Fables book itself. Will #3 live up to the standard set by the first two?
Or – “Realistic Portrayals Of Kids Are Difficult, But Awesome…” The children of Bigby Wolf and Snow White have been through a lot since their grandfather (The North Wind) gave his life to defeat the evil creature known as Mr. Dark. Sadly, it seems that things aren’t gonna be getting any easier. Can’t a family of wolf/human/wind creatures just siddown and watch Community like normal folk?
