  1. X-Men’s Jane Goldman Joining Fables Film Writing Team, Updates on Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts

    Also, the Fables movie is still a thing that is happening.

    David Heyman's Paddington is making haymen at the box office, and so he's doing the usual press thing, which means he's being asked about his other projects, i.e., two geek properties that have women writing their screenplays, so, up our alley.

  7. Study Shows “Pinocchio” Won’t Help Your Kid Handle The Truth

    Or whales.

    Of all the moralistic fables told to kids to encourage honesty, "Pinocchio" is one of the weirdest, and possibly the least effective. A team of child psychologists recently studied the influence classic tales have on the honesty of children between 3-7 years old, and found that stories need a very specific touch to teach the merits of truth.

  8. Interview: Mark Buckingham On Dead Boy Detectives and the End of Fables

    Interview

    Last November DC announced that its Vertigo title Fables is coming to an end next year with issue #150. The epic saga began over a decade ago in 2002, and it, along with various spin-off titles, has become a major hit, attracting many fans who weren't comic book readers before. Mark Buckhingham has been one of the book's biggest artists throughout its run. At Emerald City Comicon 2014, we talked to him about the series' end. We also discussed his work on the new series Dead Boy Detectives featuring Edwin Paine and Charles Roland, two ghosts originally introduced in Neil Gaiman's Sandman series in 1991.

  9. Review: The Wolf Among Us, Episode Three

    The thing that sucked me into Fables was how intimately familiar it was with the inner workings of the stories it drew from. There have been many contemporary stories with old-school fairy tale characters, but Fables had an eye for tiny details. It delighted in turning some tropes on their heads while preserving others for posterity (with varying degrees of success). Reading those comics was like falling along a Mobius strip, going from reimaginings to classic story and back again. Until episode three, I didn’t realize that this was the thing I’d been missing from The Wolf Among Us. In all other ways, it felt like a Fables story. Same characters, similar-enough artwork, the correct balance of darkness, magic, and wry humor. But it was missing that secret ingredient — something that became apparent the minute it was mixed back in. Mild spoilers for all three episodes of The Wolf Among Us, as well as for those who haven’t read the comics.

  10. Telltale Releases A Trailer For The Wolf Among Us, Episode 3

    When last we left The Wolf Among Us, Bigby was f*#$@ing pissed. In this trailer for Episode 3 of Telltale Games' series based on the Vertigo Comic, it seems not much has changed. That said, I'm very much enjoying this game and I look forward to threatening more Fables with my wolfy-ness. Side note: how nice is it some folks are now taking the time to put a spoiler warning in the actual video? We saw that just yesterday with the Game of Thrones Honest Trailer.

  11. A Review of The Wolf Among Us, Episode 2: Smoke and Mirrors. Also, Thoughts on Brothels.

    Review

    Mild spoilers for those who have read the comics; major spoilers for those who haven’t. When I wrote my review of the first episode of The Wolf Among Us, I had qualms about Snow White. She wasn’t the Snow I knew and loved from the comics. It was the only thing I didn’t like about the game, but it put me off so much that I wasn’t sure if this series was for me. I'm happy to report that my fears have been alleviated.

  12. Check Out The “Adult” Trailer For The Wolf Among Us Episode 2

    Olden Lore

    Not that Fables is a kid-friendly comic book but woah, hey, there's a boob shot in this trailer for Telltale Games' The Wolf Among Us Episode 2. But besides that, it's a nice teaser of what's to come when it's released next week. Can't wait to get my hands on it, then play it through my two different scenarios from Episode 1.

  14. Is Telltale Working On A Game of Thrones Video Game?

    You know nothing Jon Snow

    IGN.com has an interesting report up today. They say "multiple sources" have told them Telltale Games, the folks behind the recent Fables game, The Wolf Among Us, and The Walking Dead, is working on a similar escapade based on George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books (or the HBO Game of Thrones series, it's not clear). Telltale's Steve Allison, SVP of Publishing, told them, “We get these sorts of rumors about what we could be working on next cropping up all the time. Officially we have no comment.” Perhaps they're actually just testing the waters to see if fans would be interested in something like this? I know I definitely am. I'd like to put my vote in now for Brienne of Tarth being the main character. We'll keep you updated but remember: When you play the Game of Thrones game, you win or you die. Just like pretty much every other game. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  16. The Wolf Among Us, Episode 1: A Review of The New Fables Adventure Game

    Review

    The first portion of this review is spoiler free. The latter bit contains mild spoilers for those who have read Fables, and huge spoilers for those who haven’t. You’ll be warned before the gear shift. My wallet didn’t stand a chance against The Wolf Among Us. A new episodic adventure game from the makers of The Walking Dead, based on one of my favorite comic book series? That sounded like peanut butter and chocolate. A perfect combo. But after completing the first episode, I’m feeling more like the first time I had apple pie and cheddar cheese — pretty sure I like it, wondering if I prefer the two as separate entities, withholding judgment until I take another bite.

  20. Suddenly: A Fables Movie Adaptation

    and let it be known

    Bill Willingham's Fables, published from DC Comics' Vertigo imprint, has long been a series that seems ripe for a television adaptation. Both NBC and ABC have had a Fables television show in development at some point, with ABC later going on to create Once Upon a Time, a series that's also about characters of fairy tales exiled and living in the real world. But it's been a while since there was any movement on the Fables television front, and now we may know why. Some folks behind the Harry Potter movies have announced that they're pushing a theatrical film version of the comics to Hollywood.
