'Fables' (ALL) Episodic Titles Coming From TellTale Games

Set prior to the events seen in the first issue of the Fables comic book series, The Wolf Among Us puts players in the role of Bigby Wolf, a man once more infamously known as The Big Bad Wolf.

A consistent New York Times bestseller, Fables is one of DC Comics’ longest-running series published under its Vertigo imprint. The series received over a dozen Eisner Awards including Best Writer, Best New Series, and numerous wins for Best Serialized Story, and was a 2009 Hugo Award nominee for Best Graphic Story.

From Snow White and the Big Bad Wolf, to Goldilocks and Little Boy Blue, these beloved characters are alive and well—but they’ve been exiled from the land of fairy tales. Escaping the mysterious Adversary, they have relocated to a magically camouflaged New York City neighborhood known as Fabletown. To survive in the mundane world, the Fables will have to fight for their happily ever after.

“Bill Willingham’s FABLES brings everything we look for in a property to bring to episodic gaming,” said Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games. “Strong, iconic characters, deep, nuanced story arcs, and rich, fully realized worlds. This is a series that will work extremely well for the cinematic style of adventures that Telltale delivers.”

Fables is one of the cornerstone series of DC's Vertigo imprint thanks to Bill Willingham's excellent writing and Mark Buckingham's gorgeous art,” said Geoff Johns, Chief Creative Officer, DC Entertainment. “At its heart, Fables is a captivating serialized story built in a new, yet familiar universe, one that will translate to a great episodic gaming experience.”
