Searched for a thread on this, didn't see it.
I'm feeling lazy tonight, so I'll let Wiki do my work for me:
is an ongoing Vertigo comic book
series created and written by Bill Willingham
, starting in 2002. The series deals with various characters from fairy tales
– referring to themselves as "Fables" – who have been forced out of their Homelands
by a mysterious enemy known as the Adversary
They have traveled to our world and formed a clandestine community in New York City
known as Fabletown
. Fables who are unable to blend in with human society (such as monsters and anthropomorphic animals) live at "the Farm" in upstate New York
. It takes place in a continuity
of its own, and is unrelated to the larger DC Comics
Willingham reinterpreted many of the characters, evident in the divorce of Snow White
and Prince Charming
due to his infidelity. The former is deputy mayor of Fabletown as the series begins.
Another principal character is the Big Bad Wolf
(calling himself "Bigby"), who has not only reformed, but gained the ability to take on human appearance, and serves as Fabletown's sheriff at the series' beginning.
This is a dynamite little comic, the first 4 or so archs are especially fun.
If you're not into traditional comics, this one may be worth checking out.
