Wolf Among Us Trailer Bites Down

While everyone anticipates the continued story of Clementine in season two of Telltale Game’s The Walking Dead, they were busy working on another game to fill the void. Based on the Vertigo Comics series, Fables, Telltale plans to release Wolf Among Us soon.

The game will feature Bigby Wolf as the main character in a pre-Fables setting that will allow us to see some of favorite characters that are not around anymore. Bigby plays the noir detective archetype as the sheriff of Fabletown. The game looks to feature a lot of story, murder, and suspense.

Huff and puff your way past the jump to watch the first trailer.

Six New Titles From Vertigo in the Fall

  sndm_promo_highresAs Neil Gaiman’s Sandman helped usher in the new line of comics as it transitioned from DC Comics proper to their Vertigo line, Morpheus will help usher in a new renaissance at Vertigo. The New York Times has revealed that Neil Gaiman’s Sandman prequel, now titled Sandman: Overture, will begin October 30. But that’s not all. Also on the schedule are six other titles including another Gaiman-inspired book. What are they? Let’s take a look.


Hinterkind – This comic takes place in “a post-apocalyptic world in which the creatures of myth and legend have returned” written by Ian Edginton (2000AD) and art by Francesco Trifogli.

HINT_Cv1The Witching Hour – An anthology one-shot featuring short stories exploring witchcraft by the talents of Kelly Sue DeConnick, Cliff Chiang, Matthew Sturges, and more.

Coffin Hill – A dark fantasy about a mysterious force left buried since the Salem Witch Trials combining the fantasy author Caitlin Kittredge and artist Inaki Miranda.


The Dead Boy Detectives – Edwin and Charles, ghost detectives originating from Sandman #25, will have a new series handled by Toby Litt. Fables‘ Mark Buckingham will also provide layouts and painted covers.


The Discipline – Fellow Vertigo debut author Peter Milligan tells the story of a woman amidst a shadow war. It is also described as an “erotic thriller” (kinky!). Leo Fernandez will be on art duty.

Suiciders – Lee Bermejo tries his hand as both writer and artist in a tale of two boxers on opposite ends of the spectrum in a futuristic Los Angeles.
