During the 2009 San Diego Comic Con, Vertigo gave away a one page teaser entitled "One Summer Afternoon" to FABLES fans hinting at what was to come. Today it was put up on their blog for the masses to enjoy.
In July of 2009 at the San Diego Comicon, we gave away a one-page FABLES story to our amazingly ardent fans at the annual FABLES panel.
And it managed to freak out the entire convention. Including yours truly. Because, in 2009, it portended a series of nasty, sick and twisted events that begin in FABLES #114 which comes out in February of 2012 — the day after you call the cops about your psycho stalker Valentine.
Now, I know that I'm asking for trouble simply by releasing the story, "One Summer Afternoon" here, considering that I'm forced to appear on stage at the San Diego Comicon each and every year if only to threaten Bill that I'm going to fire him (again) for public amusement. Please note that we will uphold our promise not to print said one-page story. But showing it here on the blog just seemed like the most logical way to remind readers, loyal and neophytes respectively, what's to come for Bigby Wolf and Snow White's coveted offspring in FABLES: CUBS IN TOYLAND.
And, yes, I realize that this year, our loyal Fabletown followers who attend the San Diego Comicon might choose to pelt me with fresh fish or rotten tomatoes. In which case, I may forgo the Courreges red jumper for a silver and orange hazmat suit.
