Fables: Book 6

Imagine that all the characters from the world's most beloved storybooks were real— real, and living among us, with oil oi their powers intact. How would they cope with life in our mundane, un-magical reality? The answer can be found in FABLES, Bill Willingham's celebrated reimagining of the venerable fairy tale canon. From Snow White and the Big Bad Wolf to Goldilocks and Little Boy Blue, the folk tales of old are reborn here as exiles living in the magically camouflaged New York City neighborhood of Fabletown.

Bill Willingham (born December 1956 in Fort Belvoir, Virginia) is an American writer and artist of comics.


Willingham got his start in the late 1970s to early 1980s as a staff artist for TSR, where he illustrated a number of their role-playing game products. He first gained attention for his 1980s comic book series "Elementals" published by Comico, which he both wrote and drew, however the series had trouble maintaining a consistent schedule, and Willingham's position in the industry remained spotty for many years. He contributed stories to "Green Lantern" and started his own independent, black-and-white comic book series "Coventry" which lasted only 3 issues. He also produced the pornographic series "Ironwood" for Eros Comix.

In the late 1990s, Willingham reestablished himself as a prolific writer. He produced the 13-issue "Pantheon" for Lone Star Press and wrote a pair of short novels about the modern adventures of the hero Beowulf, and a fantasy novel "Down the Mysterly River" published by the writer's collective, Clockwork Storybook, of which Willingham was a founding member. In the early 2000s, he began writing extensively for DC Comics, including the limited series "Proposition Player", a pair of limited series about the Greek witch Thessaly from "The Sandman", and most notably the popular series "Fables".Citation | last = Irvine | first = Alex | author-link = Alexander C.

Willingham worked on the "Robin" series from 2004 to 2006, and established "Shadowpact", a title spun off his "Day of Vengeance" limited series. He is currently writing "Jack of Fables", an ongoing spin-off of his Fables series, co-written by Matthew Sturges. At the 2007 Comic Con International, he announced that he would be writing "Salvation Run", a mini-series about supervillains who are banished to an inhospitable prison planet. [ [ SDCC '07: Bill Willingham on "Salvation Run"] , Newsarama, July 27, 2007] [ [ Baltimore Comic Con '07 - DC Universe Panel] , Newsarama, September 9, 2007] Unfortunately, he had to hand over the writing to Sturges after two issues because of illness. [ [ EXCLUSIVE: Willingham Explains "Salvation Run" Departure] , Comic Book Resources, January 28, 2008] He will also be working on "", a four-issue mini-series that deals with Green Arrow's endorsement of a political candidate. [ [ Dan Didio on "DCU: Decisions"] , Newsarama, May 9, 2008]

He currently lives in Las Vegas. He frequently interacts with fans on the [ Fabletown message boards]
