From the Publisher
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.

"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
"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
