All nine issues of the long awaited crossover between Vertigo's two popular series Fables and Jack of Fables are collected here.
The world of Fables is introduced to a whole new set of characters...The Literals. The Literals are characters that embody, literally, different literary genres such as Mystery, Comedy and Romance. One of The Literals goes by the name The Storymaker, one who can vanquish the world of Fables with one stroke of his pen.
When Jack discovers the existence of The Literals and their leader Kevin Thorn aka The Storymaker, Jack must leave his own book and crossover to the world of Fables to warn Fabletown about Kevin Thorn. Does the The Storymaker plan to close the book on the Fables universe once and for all?
The Great Fables Crossover features appearances from Fables favorites such as Snow White, Bigby Wolf, Rose Red, Jack Frost,
Beauty and The Beast.
This fabulous edition collects all nine issues comprising THE GREAT FABLES CROSSOVER-- FABLES #83-85, JACK OF FABLES #33-35, plus the three issues of THE LITERALS miniseries. Such a collection is noteworthy in and of itself, but what's more, these three story arcs were conceived from the beginning to constitute this single nine-episode coherent story. Furthermore, because this is a "crossover," the characters from each find themselves forced to leave their world and to cross over into the other worlds-which means things are sure to get trippy. For starters, Fablesverse creator Kevin Thorn, desiring a tabula rasa, is determined to destroy everything. Jack gets wind of this when he learns of the Literals (Romance, Mystery, etc.), and he, Bigby Wolf, and Snow White must act fast to prevent their permanent erasure.
