Fables #1 Comic Book. First Printing in NM Condition. Publisher/Year: DC/Vertigo, July 2002 – Print Run: 11,817
Here’s the concept: Characters from familiar fairy tales have been forced out of their mythical homelands by “The Adversary” and now live in Fabletown, an undercover community within a luxury apartment in New York City. Those who look human do their best to blend in with the rest of society undetected. The others live at “The Farm” in upstate New York.
The Fables, as they call themselves, live in peace until someone murders Rose Red, Snow White’s wild and wanton sister.
Fabletown’s sheriff, the now-reformed Big Bad Wolf (who has the power to look human), investigates to determine whether the killer is Bluebeard, the infamous wife-killer and Rose’s ex, or Jack, former magic bean trader and Rose’s live-in lover. The homicide case forms the first Fables story arc.
A few years ago, NBC optioned Fables to make into a series, but the network didn’t develop the show past a pilot script. Last week, however, ABC announced plans to move forward with the pilot. Stu Zicherman and Raven Metzner, who wrote Elektra and the underrated (IMO) Six Degrees, will write the pilot script. David Semel, who has worked on Buffy, Angel, Heroes, House and others, will direct. The team won’t talk details, but have confirmed that Snow White and Big B. Wolf are central to the story.
