Bill ('Fables') Willingham signs exclusive with DC

Official Press Release

Bill Willingham, creator of the critically acclaimed VERTIGO series FABLES creator and Eisner-nominated writer, has signed a two-year exclusive agreement with DC Comics.

"I'm obviously pleased that DC has shown this faith in me, first to make me such a generous offer and then to (eventually) agree to all of the unreasonable demands in my counter offer," says Willingham. "I promise I'll return the Time Warner jet with all stewardesses more or less intact and a full tank of gas."

"As far as my upcoming projects from both Vertigo and the DCU go, I'll simply promise that there are some fun stories on the way over the next two years," Willingham adds. "Of course, FABLES will continue to be among those books."

"Bill reinvented the modern fairy tale with FABLES - turning it into one of the most-talked about new series this year," says VP - Executive Editor Karen Berger. "As with PROPOSITION PLAYER before it, Bill has shown that when he hedges his bets, it really pays off. We're thrilled to have a writer of his caliber totally in our clutches."
