Vertigo Releases Details of Willingham's FABLES #100

Fables is one of my favorite comics.  I have read every issue of Fables as well as it's spin-offs, one shots, etc.  As you can imagine, I am very excited for the release of this very special issue for many reasons.  Frau Totenkinder  vs. Mister Dark.  Rose Red vs. Gepetto.  Ozma vs. Totenkinder.

Today, Vertigo has released some details on the big 100th anniversary issue of their long-running Fables series
In this fantastic 100-page issue, it's time to put an end to Mister Dark once and for all, and time for the Fables to return home to Fabletown. For that to happen, one of the Fables agrees to take on the Dark Man in single combat! It's big, it's epic, and if you live in New York City, you may want to take a quick vacation when this issue comes out, because things are going to get wrecked!

In addition to the larger-than-life main story, we have a FABLES prose story written by Mark Buckingham and illustrated by Bill Willingham! We have an All-Star Burning Questions section that will knock your socks off (seriously, innocent people are going to lose some socks here). We have a puppet theatre created by the unstoppably creative Mark Buckingham, a FABLES board game, sequential stories painted by Chrissie Zullo and Joao Ruas, and even more surprises in this square-bound behemoth celebrating this award-winning Vertigo series!
Also in this issue are:
• A set of do-it-yourself Fables puppet theater illustrated by Mark Buckingham
• A three-page story written by Willingham with art by Cinderella artist Chrissie Zullo
• A three-page story written by Willingham with art by Joao Ruas
• A two-page Fables board game, illustrated by Buckingham, with game rules by Willingham
• Four celebrity “Burning Questions” stories, all written by Willingham, featuring questions from some of your favorite actors who are also FABLES fans! These “Burning Questions” are illustrated by top-flight artists including Adam Hughes, J.H. Williams III and Dave Johnson.

Fables #100 is scheduled to arrive in stores on December 8!
