Description

New York Times bestselling, award-winning creator Bill Willingham presents a new series starring the female FABLES. Balancing horror, humor and adventure in the FABLES tradition, FAIREST explores the secret histories of Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Cinderella, The Snow Queen, Thumbelina, Snow White, Rose Red and others.

In a stand-alone tale, Beast must hunt a beauty, but what is her relation to his past? And then, in a 6-part epic, Rapunzel lives one of the most regimented lives in Fabletown, forced to maintain her rapidly growing hair lest her storybook origins be revealed. But when word of her long-lost children surface, she races across the sea to find them--and a former lover.

Praise For Fairest Vol. 2

"By the time I put the book down I was already anticipating the further adventures of the Fairest fables. Willingham's love for these characters is a abundantly clear and palpable on every page."—boingboing.com

"This is a different, more fantastical take on the characters of the Fable setting, with little to no interactions with the modern world, instead a more imaginative approach to recreating the fantasy at the heart of the tales that inspired the setting. Jimenez’s detailed art is fittingly gorgeous and gives the magic all the grandeur it deserves.—Publishers Weekly
