CCI: "Fables" Panel

Bill Willingham and the rest of the "Fables" crew discussed the 100th issue of the long-running Vertigo series, "Jack of Fables," "House of Mystery" and more at their Comic-Con International panel.

All the titles that didn't make it home were essentially cancelled out as Noh Varr, Astra Furst, Amadeus Cho, Jack Frost and Richard Ryder showed up in full force to get the job done for the week.  

The world's greatest detective is a mystery herself, Jack of Fables gets a snack, and a super-powered college grad has a blast. Meanwhile, things go better than expected with a good number of comics and some good times.

Although Jack Frost, Bloodlust and Kal-L fail to accomplish a gosh darned thing, Martin Li and Matt Murdock manage to keep their cool while Scarlett and Toshiro Ono may just be too cool for their own good in a week that wins.

CCI: Fables

Bill Willingham and the other creators behind "Fables," "Jack of Fables" and the newly announced "Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love" met with fans at Comic-Con International to share exciting news about the hit Vertigo franchise.

In a winning week, Rick Remender throws down the gauntlet with two comics making the jump, leading off a week rife with menacing mechanoids, simians everywhere and the return of Super Young Team.

Talking JSA With Willingham & Sturges

Writers Bill Willingham & Matthew Sturges reveal to CBR News their favorite heroes of the Justice Society of America, and talk about what fans of the best- selling DC title can expect when they take over later this year.

Matthew Sturges is Ready to "Run!"

The prolific Matthew Sturges speaks with CBR News about the end of "Blue Beetle," the start of "Run!," and what's coming wicked to Fabletown in a "Fables" / "Jack of Fables" crossover. Plus, "House of Mystery!"

Even stevens as the hammer comes down, girls go mild and Fat Cobra makes his triumphant return, plus "Sword," "Final Crisis: Rage of the Red Lanterns," some "Secret Invasion" titles and lots of unpredictable surprises.

DC dominates a week featuring five jumps as T'Challa breaks it down, Captain Cold lives up to his name, Braniac 5 "takes care of it," Matty gets more political and much more.

Things go well as Tony Stark improvises, Jack of Fables feels like Rockwell (the singer), Ed Brubaker noirs it up in Criminal" and Kyle Baker makes a surprise appearance while Hannibal puzzles over a handful of books this week.

CCI: Vertigo Voices "Fables" Panel

A new "Fables" miniseries and an upcoming "Fables" crossover were just two of the revelations made in the "Fables" spotlight panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego over the weekend.

That didn't go well for The Buy Pile this week, as a lengthy drive helped set the tone for one pedestrian collection of comics, from The High to The Sentry, with Hank Pym Skrulling it up quite nicely and quite consistently.

Despite the ghosts of comics past, the week wins on the basis of two surprise purchases, including a bilingual family reunion, a deluge of martial arts action and Frost Noble with a soul patch.
