Fables ending with issue #150

| Nov 1, 2013

The end can be seen.

The long-running Vertigo series known as Fables will come to a close with issue #150, which will likely arrive early 2015. Writer Bill Willingham made the announcement on Friday through his personal website, adding he will partially retire from the comic book work

“Retirement in the storytelling trade means, still working and writing every day, but being a bit more selective in what projects I take on,” Willingham wrote. “Pushing 60, I thought it would be a good time to start making concrete plans for those remaining good writing years.”

Issue #137 hits shelves in Jan. 2014, with the Fairest series also coming to a close before the final Fables issue.

Fables emerged in 2002, and has established a solid grasp on DC Comics’ mature audience. The series has won 14 Eisner Awards, a movie is in the works as well, and it’s also served as an inspiration for Telltale’s current video game The Wolf Among Us.
