Comic Book Resources reported yesterday that in September, Vertigo will be releasing a new title called “Everafter: From the Pages of Fables.” While it will not be written by Fables creator Bill Willingham, this will be written by Matthew Sturges and Dave Justus. They are the writers for the comic adaptation of The Wolf Among Us, and Sturges has previously written within the Fables universe.
The series will feature Bo Peep, Peter Piper, Hansel, and Connor Wolf. It’s being described as a spy thriller in which a group of Fables have to police a world that finds itself newly enchanted and protect humanity.
I kid you not, but just yesterday I was thinking about how I wished Willingham had just passed Fables on to someone else, rather than ending it altogether. So, this news makes me pretty happy. We’ll see how it actually goes come September.
