Description

A #1 New York Times Best Seller! At long last! The long-awaited
original FABLES: Werewolves of the Heartland graphic novel is here! Bigby
Wolf embarks on a quest through the American Heartland to find a new location
for Fabletown, a secret society of exiled fairy tale characters living among the
"mundys." In his wanderings, Bigby stumbles across Story City, a small town that
seems to be occupied solely by werewolves. Oddly enough, they seem to already
know and revere Bigby, but at the same time they've captured and caged him!
FABLES: Werewolves of the Heartland tells an epic tale that began well
before Bigby Wolf set foot in the bucolic plains of the Midwest. It began long
ago when he served in World War II and became mired in a Nazi experiment that
would change nations. It's soon evident that murder in Story City is the least
of their sins, and unraveling the town's many mysteries may cost Bigby, the
seventh son of the North Wind, much more than his own life!
