    1st printing. By Neta Gordon. Bill Willingham's Fables imagined the lives of fairy tale figures - Snow White, the Big Bad Wolf, Cinderella and the ubiquitous Prince Charming, among many others - as they made new lives for themselves in modern-day New York City. This study, the first about the sprawling, complex series, discusses such topics as Fables' status as a contemporary adaptation of folk and fairy tales; its use of conventional genres like sword-and-sorcery, crime and romance; its portrayal of social and political relationships; and its self-referential moments. The author explores how Fables portrays redemption, the function of community, and how our hopes and fears influence our ideal of "happily ever after." Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 208 pages, B&W. Cover price $35.00.
