"Fables" is the hugely imaginative story of a group of fairy tale characters exiled from their mythical homelands and forced into a secret existence in modern-day America. Featuring such familiar names as Snow White, Prince Charming and Bigby (formerly Big Bad) Wolf, this is hard-edged fantasy in the grand tradition of The Sandman. The war for the Homelands is over, and the "Fables" have won - but at what cost? As Gepetto surveys his new home, a terrible force is unleashed, the rebuilding and reconciliation process starts...and a Fable dies! Volume twelve of the award-winning fantasy series by Bill Willingham and regular artists Mark Buckingham ushers in a dangerous new era for the "Fables!"
