(W) Bill Willingham  (A) Phil Jiminez

New York Times best-selling, award-winning creator Bill Willingham presents a new series starring the female FABLES. Balancing horror, humor and adventure, FAIREST explores the secret histories of Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Cinderella, The Snow Queen, Thumbelina, Snow White, Rose Red and others.
The first 6 issue arc follows the misadventures of Briar Rose after she is stolen away by the goblin army in FABLES #107. Fan-favorite artist Phil Jimenez (WONDER WOMAN, THE INVISIBLES) returns to Vertigo to pencil the opening storyline. Award-winning cover artist Adam Hughes (WONDER WOMAN, BATGIRL) provides covers, starting with a wraparound cover on issue #1.
Future arcs will be written by 2011 Arthur C. Clarke winner Lauren Beukes with art by Inaki Miranda, and iZOMBIE scribe Chris Roberson with art by Shawn McManus! And remember: They may be beautiful, but there will be blood.

Taking the place of the dearly departed, "Jack of Fables" title, Willingham expands his Fables universe with a book spotlighting the dark histories of some of the most glamorous women of the realm. What secrets are those innocent smiles hiding? With a lifespan of hundreds of years, I can only assume their closets are a little full. Don't miss out on the newest Vertigo title of 2012, with fantastic art by Phil Jiminez! RECOMMENDED BY PERRY!
