    More Fables and Fables related spin-offs are always a welcome and good thing.

    Awesome news.

    This seems like a great idea. My problem with Jack was that I didn't think he could really support an ongoing series so I like that they're going to produce what is basically a series of miniseries about a bunch of different characters.

    This sounds like exactly what I was hoping for in a fables spinoff except I wanted it to look at all sorts of characters and not just the "fairest" even if that definition is stretched. Seems like they are kind of limiting the potential for no reason.

    i can't wait, all new fables stuff is welcomed by me and this sounds awesome from the concept to the creative teams involved. Also, covers by Adam Hughes. Oh boy oh boy...

    I would have preferred covers by Chrissie Zullo over Hughes, but that is a small quibble in the overall awesome.

    her covers for Cinderella are awesome. I like the Cinderella stories a lot, but her covers even more. She really should do more for Fables, i agree.

    Hopefully she will, or at least for Vertigo. I picked up a couple of prints of her original paintings at HeroesCon in 2010, and they are amazing.

    I like her covers. But Adam Hughes is possibly the best cover artist there is.
