Check out the gorgeous preview images!


If you are like me, then Fables could very well be one of your absolute favorite comic book series. In which case, you may be just as excited as I am about feasting your eyes on the gorgeous preview images courtesy of Vertigo! Are you curious to see what will happen now that Frau Totenkinder is gone? The issue will be released on November 11, 2009, will you be picking this up?

 "Witches" Part 4! We continue our in-depth look at the inner workings, politics and intrigue of the 13th floor sorcerers group, this time focusing on the witch named (CENSORED for reader safety), who thinks she's the best candidate to take over leadership from Frau Totenkinder. Unfortunately for her, the infamous Black Forest Witch doesn't seem ready to give up the reins of power. As Maddy the Cat said just two issues back, "Everyone could see there was a showdown brewing between those two, and I've no intention of finding myself in the middle of it when it happens."

@xerox-kitty: I hope you realize that going your route it'll probably be another couple years before you get this issue or see Ozma...
 
I would normally say "just kidding" here, but I'm not :P 
 
btw, where on Amazon do you find a Vol. 2? it's not even on the Vertigo website yet and that extends to January, 2010 plus a couple items in the months afterwards

@aztek the lost: Oh believe me I know... but I figure it'll be easier on my bank account that way, and everyone else had to wait several years to get to this issue too. 
 
(It's only Vol 1.  For some strange reason they list release dates as being later than they really are.  I think it might be because they're from Titan instead of DC Direct & Diamond.  The wait doesn't bother me, since the pre-order prices are usually around 50%)

@xerox-kitty: You know, that's one thing I've never experienced (I guess I'm a newb comic fan =/) but yeah, I've never had the privilege to join a 50 issue plus series right from the first issue and gone through it's ups and downs for years, I've always been able to jump into a completed epic or one that's already deep into the story (like Fables). I don't know if I could wait years to read an entire series, do I have it in me?
 
Well I'm hoping you find it worth the wait, I mean it's ten whole issues! That's basically a year's worth right there...
