Cammy’s Covers – Fearless Defenders To Winter Soldier

Cameron Hatheway writes; The Fearless Defenders #5 by Mark Brooks Ah, this cover brings back some awesome memories from my childhood. Arriving over at Paolo’s house on the weekends, putting in Street Fighter, and playing for the rest of the day. Since I wasn’t very good, I would always play as Blanco and try my […]

Review: Fairest #11

Louis Falcetti writes; I like the quiet epics. The stories that explode and dazzle but remain under the radar, even when bearing the greasy fingerprints of The Big 2 on the pay stubs. Garth Ennis has been crafting a quiet epic with his series and thinking back on other recent runs that didn’t seem to […]

Cammy’s Covers – From Fairest to Willow

Cameron Hatheway writes for Bleeding Cool Fairest #10 by Adam Hughes Oh deer! So if you’re a regular reader of this column, you’ll know of my infatuation with these Adam Hughes Fairest covers. They’re always featuring a beautiful scantily clad woman, which would be the homerun for a lot of people

Cammy’s Covers – Fairest To Hypernaturals

Cameron Hatheway writes for Bleeding Cool; Fairest #8 by Adam Hughes First and foremost, I had to edit the ARROW banner from the top, because it just ruins the image had I included it. Why do you hate beautiful covers, DC? It’s completely insulting to the artist to try and draw attention away from this […]

Review: Fairest #7

Louis Falcetti writes for Bleeding Cool; The most recent Fables spinoff, Fairest, has been until now a somewhat insular affair. It’s not that it hasn’t been good, not at all. From the Adam Hughes covers to the Phil Jiminez pencils in the first story arc, not to mention Willingham’s always interesting, fun scripts, it’s definitely […]

Bill Willingham On Sex, Death And Politics

Gavin Lees wrote for Bleeding Cool from ECCC; Bill Willingham is enjoying runaway success with his series, Fables, which has just recently debuted a new spin-off series, Fairest.  He is also something of an anomaly, being one of the few outspokenly conservative creators in the industry.  So, while talking to Willingham about his new project, […]

DC Vertigo Relaunch: Covers For Issue 2

They aren’t calling it a relaunch. Because it isn’t one. But the decision to launch four new titles from DC Vertigo in March does give it a slightly relaunchy feel. And, from the DC blog, are the four second issue covers for April for Saucer Country, The New Deadwardians, Dominique Laveau: Voodoo Child and Fairest.

DC To Support Vertigo Relaunch With Ordering Incentives And Variant Covers

The backbone of the success of the DC Relaunch was the publisher offering retailers incentives to order more of the comics, so they could be easily bought off the shelf when the media promotions hit. Variant covers, extra discount, returnability, it enabled retailers to take more of a risk, and in some cases reap the […]

Fables has grown into DC/Vertigo’s largest franchise, spinning off into series upon series, with games and TV shows also in the offing. But now all those spin-off mini-series will appear as an ongoing series-of-mini-series called Fairest, announced at the Fables panel at San Diego Comic Con. A consolidation if you will.
