Fables may have ended with issue #150, but the universe it created will be revived when Vertigo lauches Everafter: From The Pages of Fables, a new ongoing series by the Fables: Wolf Among Us writing team of Matthew Sturges and Dave Justus, with art from Travis Moore, and covers from Tula Lotay.
Everafter will focus on The Shadow Players, an organization dedicated to policing magic in the enchanted post-Fables world.
"Everafter is a spy thriller featuring a covert-ops team whose mission is to save this newly magical world from itself," explained co-writer Dave Justus. "The story has a uniquely Vertigo flair, filled with twists, double-crosses, and agents willing to give their lives for (fairy) queen and (goblin) country!"
"We've always hated that feeling of getting to the end of a great book and wondering, 'But then what happened?'" said co-writer Matthew Sturges. "Bill Willingham planted so many seeds in the final issue of Fables that it was impossible for us to let it lie."
Fables creator Bill Willingham endorsed the new series and creative team, saying "The terrific job Matt Sturges, Dave Justus, and Travis Moore did on the comic adaptations of the Wolf Among Us video games made them the perfect team to carry this new spin-off series. There are some terrific surprises ahead in a world that is no longer mundy. What happens in a world that now knows about Fables and the sharp rise of magic in their midst? Everafter is going to show us."
Everafter: From The Pages of Fables launches in September.
