CBR TV @ CCI 2011: Bill Willingham on “Fables,” “Fairest” & More

“Fables” creator Bill Willingham spoke with CBR TV about how a political conservative is able to sport a hippy-style ponytail before spilling details on his WonderCon wager with DC Comics’ Dan DiDio.

Willingham also explains why his name remains on the MIA list of creators involved in DC Comics’ New 52 relaunch, his current disinterest in modern superhero stories and the relationship between superheroes and fairy tales.

Beyond that, the award-winning writer looks back at the last decade of “Fables” and the early decision to make Mark Buckingham the series’ regular artist before touching on the current status of the television deal and computer game. Finally, Willingham discusses the future of his critically acclaimed Vertigo title, which includes a new spinoff, “Fairest,” starring Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and more of Fabletown’s female characters as illustrated by Phil Jimenez.
