Super sleuths go head to head this September in BATMAN VS BIGBY!

We know you love a good crossover, Third Eye Faithful, and we’ve got the spotlight on an incredible one for you! If you were a fan of the awesome series FABLES, then this is one you’re going to want to jump in on! Writer Bill Willingham brings Fables sleuth Bigby Wolf into the world of Gotham and puts him directly the path of the world’s greatest detective, Batman.

BATMAN VS BIGBY is a series long awaited by author Bill Willingham, who’d wanted to bring Bigby Wolf into the DC Universe since the beginning of FABLES. There’s bound to be fireworks in Gotham when the two detectives clash, and we cannot wait to get our hands on this six-issue miniseries!

Not only will it be an incredible story, but, it also serves as the catalyst to the return of FABLES! Returning to shelves in May of 2022, in time to celebrate it’s 20th anniversary!

What’s the scoop on BATMAN VS BIGBY?

With the blood dry at Gotham’s fourth gruesome murder scene in as many weeks, Batman is stumped. The same hallmarks haunt each investigation: brute-force entries, bodies ripped to shreds and stamped with enormous bite marks, and clumps of fur—wolf fur—scattered in the wreckage. The streets buzz with rumors of the “Werewolf of Gotham.” Determined to crack this case, Batman finds no leads and a mysterious, hairy, chain-smoking figure dogging his every move. The Dark Knight’s dangerously close to losing his cool when a series of bombings levels the city’s libraries in the days leading up to the 32nd annual Gotham Literary Festival.

As Batman narrows in on the Bookworm and his literary henchmen, he discovers that an invaluable book from another world is at the center of the violence. Stranger still, the wolf is in on it. But what kind of monster is built from such brains and brawn—and is he an enemy or an ally? Worlds collide as a Gotham mystery kick-starts a return to the world of Fables!

FABLES VOL 1 TP

This first FABLES volume introduces Fabletown, and the murder mystery of Snow White’s party-girl sister, Rose Red. It’s up to Bigby, Fabletown’s sheriff, and a reformed and pardoned Big Bad Wolf, to determine if the culprit is Bluebeard, Rose’s ex-lover and notorious wife killer, or Jack, her current live-in boyfriend and former beanstalk-climber.

When a savage creature known only as the Adversary conquered the fabled lands of legends and fairy tales, all of the infamous inhabitants of folklore were forced into exile. Disguised among the “mundys,” their name for normal citizens of modern-day New York, these magical characters created their own secret society that they call Fabletown. From their exclusive luxury apartment buildings on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, these creatures of legend must fight for their survival in the new world.
