JACK OF FABLES #1

Written by Bill Willingham and Matthew Sturges
Art by Tony Akins and Andrey Pepoy
Cover by James Jean

Last seen hitchhiking from Hollywood after releasing a trilogy of films (about himself) that made him an international superstar, the series follows Jack's immediate adventures as a wayward Fable in the heartland of America. His extreme road stories and encounters with other notorious, renegade Fables are just a few of the situations in store for this fan-favorite character of the multiple Eisner Award-winning FABLES series. Willingham remarked, "The only way to stop Jack from stinking up the regular FABLES series was to offer him his own spin-off book, so really we had no choice."
