A Telltale Games Series Based on Bill Willingham’s ‘FABLES’ Set to Premiere on Consoles, PC/MAC this Summer
SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Mar. 28, 2013 – Leading developer and publisher of digital entertainment, Telltale Games, in cooperation with DC Entertainment, unleashes ‘The Wolf Among Us’ this summer. Based on Bill Willingham’s award-winning comic book series ‘FABLES’ and licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Telltale Games will premiere its new series on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®Network, and on PC and Mac from the Telltale Online Store and other digital distribution outlets.
A consistent New York Times bestseller, ‘FABLES’ is one of DC Entertainment’s longest-running series published under its Vertigo imprint since 2002. With over a dozen Eisner Awards, including Best Writer, Best New Series, and numerous wins for Best Serialized Story, the FABLES universe has become one of the richest mythologies in the world of comics, imagining that characters like Snow White, The Big Bad Wolf and Pinocchio from the world’s most beloved storybooks are real – Real, and living among us, with all of their powers intact.
“Developing ‘The Wolf Among Us’ based on the ‘FABLES’ universe has allowed our studio to build upon all of the hallmarks of what makes our episodic series so engaging for players,” said Dan Connors, CEO and Co-Founder of Telltale Games. “Through an evolution of our approach to choice and consequence, we can further explore the complexity of each and every iconic character in a universe rich with untold history from the darkest sides of the storybooks.”
Set prior to the events seen in the first issue of the FABLES comic book series, The Wolf Among Us puts players in the role of Bigby Wolf, a man once more infamously known as The Big Bad Wolf. Now the sheriff of a hidden community in New York City, exiled from the land of fairy tales, Bigby is tasked by the bureaucrat Snow White to keep order within a society of mythical creatures and characters trying to remain undetected in the world of the mundane. From a chain-smoking member of ‘The Three Little Pigs,’ to a car-stealing Mr. Toad itching for his next wild ride, The Wolf Among Us examines the lives of beings straight from the pages of myth and lore, now trying to survive on the meanest and most run-down streets of New York City.
No clowning around – PLAYMOBIL is growing! Known for their traditional, classic figures, PLAYMOBIL has revealed their tallest figure ever, Clown on Stilts. Part of the Series 4 Figure blind packs, this silly clown measures 4.7 inches instead of the usual figure height of 2.95 inches.
This rare figure is one of 24 brand new faces available in the PLAYMOBIL Figures Series 4, which also includes a Firefighter, Chef and Pirate. Kids will also be able to assemble, take apart, or mix and match body parts and accessories to create their own characters.
PLAYMOBIL Figures Series 4 blind packs hit shelves in April and will retail for approximately $2.99 each.
The Marvel Minimates in Diamond Select Toys’ upcoming “Strange Tales” box set were inspired by classic Marvel horror comics of yesteryear, but until today they have been only legend. However, new photographic evidence has surfaced that captures the box set’s four characters in their natural habitats, proving once and for all that these Minimates are real… and awesome!
The box set includes the first-ever Minimates of Jack Russell (a.k.a. Werewolf by Night) and Michael Morbius (a.k.a. Morbius the Living Vampire), as well as new, 1970s-style Minimates of Dr. Stephen Strange (the Sorceror Supreme of Earth) and Eric Brooks, better known as the vampire hunter Blade. Each Minimate stands 2 inches tall with 14 points of articulation, and the set includes a variety of interchangeable parts and accessories, including a stake-throwing hand and alternate bare arms for Blade, spell-casting hands and an energy base for Dr. Strange, a flight base for Morbius and standard bases for all four.
Check out photos of the figures in action below, and look for them to reach stores in April! Pre-order a set today at your local comic shop or favorite online retailer!

So dress your best.
“Behind every great hero, there are a whole lot of villains.” – Geoff Johns
NEW DOCUMENTARY NECESSARY EVIL: VILLAINS OF DC COMICS
LEGENDARY VILLAIN CHRISTOPHER LEE NARRATES
BURBANK, CA (March 26, 2013) – The Joker, Bane, Deathstroke, Darkseid and Lex Luthor — the scariest and most menacing villains in DC Comics’ universe — take center stage in a brand new full-length documentary from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) and DC Entertainment (DCE). The joint announcement was made today by WBHE and DCE.
Christopher Lee, who has played the villain more times than almost any other actor, will provide his unique voice as narrator. His roles in more than 200 films include star turns as Dracula, the Mummy and Frankenstein’s monster in Hammer horror classics, Count Dooku in Star Wars, and Saruman in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit films.
In this new documentary film, the malevolent, sometimes charismatic figures from DC Comics’ hallowed rogues’ gallery will be explored in depth, featuring interviews with the famed creators, storytellers and those who have crafted the personalities and profiles of many of the most notorious villains in comic book history.
Production begins March 30, to coincide with WonderCon at the Anaheim Convention Center March 29-31.
Noted Geoff Johns, best-selling author and DCE’s Chief Creative Officer, “DC Comics is known for many things, but chief among them is the compelling, diverse and legendary society of super-villains who populate its universe. From the monstrous Solomon Grundy to the brutal Black Adam to the charismatic Sinestro, there is no single greater collection of villainy in all of fiction. These villains are hugely popular comic book characters in their own right and, quite honestly, many are often times more popular than some of our iconic super heroes.”
Jeff Baker, WBHE’s Executive Vice President and General Manager, Theatrical Catalog, added “The DC brand is enjoying a huge resurgence thanks to the entire leadership team at DC Entertainment which is driving opportunities not only for new theatrical properties, but for brand extensions as well. This new documentary will reinforce this evolving strategy and leverage DC assets across the entire studio landscape.”
Johns also reiterated that this year’s initiative will be a turning point for DCE. “It’s time we deconstruct these complex and sinister antagonists and celebrate the role they play as the engine and energy of some of the greatest storytelling in comics. 2013 is the Year of the Villain at DC Comics.”
On Saturday, March 30th, fans attending WonderCon are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite DC Comics’ villain for an opportunity to be featured in the documentary. Fans can join DCE at WonderCon Booth 801 with filming to take place Saturday from 10:30 am – Noon. To find out more about where and what time to meet in the WonderCon DC Entertainment booth, keep checking the DC Comics Facebook (Facebook.com/DCComics) and Twitter sites (@DCComics).
