Description
Now why oh why in this mixed-up world would we saddle an important series that has never had anything to do with Super Heroes with a title like "Super Team"? And why has that snotty little Pinocchio suddenly got it into his head that he needs to design tight-fitting costumes for a carefully selected team of Fables? In fact, why was the little brat caught looking over his own comic-book collection, mumbling things like, "We can call him Werewolf Man, and he can be The Golden Knight, and she can be called The Green Witch?"

This volume also includes a special story illustrated by Terry Moore (Echo, Strangers in Paradise)



About the Author
Bill Willingham is the critically-acclaimed, award-winning creator of several iconic comic book series, including the bestselling Fables franchise. In 2003, its first year of publication, Fables won the prestigious Eisner award for Best New Series, and has gone on to win fourteen Eisners to date. Bill lives in the wild and frosty woods of Minnesota.

Mark Buckingham has been working in comics professionally for the past twenty two years, building a reputation for design, storytelling and a chameleon like diversity of art styles. Since 2002 Mark has been the regular artist on Fables, working with its writer and creator Bill Willingham, for which they have earned numerous comic industry awards.

Co-writer Bill Mumy is most recognized for his work as an actor, for roles in such favorites as Lost in Space, The Twilight Zone, and Babylon 5. As a musician, he has had success both as a solo performer and as a member of Barnes & Barnes. As a writer, he has worked in prose, in TV (as co-creator of Space Cases), and comic books. Co-writer Miguel Ferrer's acting has gained him attention through playing villains in such big screen works as RoboCop and Mulan and playing hard-working but beleaguered characters on the small screen in Crossing Jordan and Twin Peaks. With Mumy, he co-wrote the Marvel comics miniseries Comet Man and the graphic novel The Dreamwalker. Artist Steve Leialoha is not known for his acting, but they let him make comics anyway. In fact, they've given him multiple Eisner Awards for doing so. His work has been a strong presence ranging from the 1980s Spider-Woman to the recent hit Fables.
