Fables Of The Reconstruction, the band's third studio LP, was released on this day in 1985. Produced by Joe Boyd & recorded at Livingston Studios in London, Fables reached #28 on the US charts and #35 in the UK. What's your favorite track from Fables?
I'm drawing this book. It's been wild to dive into Gotham AND Fables at the same time.
This article has a few of the interior pages and my cover to boot! https://t.co/SKUyYN1jTQ
Fables was recommended a LOT to new readers and *especially* new female readers. There’s inevitably going to be whiplash now as people realise what’s actually in there. But when you look back, take a closer look at Goldilocks. The “war”. The treatment of the Arabian characters.
It’s important to separate the art from the artist.
So always remember that both Fables AND Bill Willingham are each garbage
I also recall Fables going out of its way to explain why Israel’s subjugation of Palestinians was absolutely necessary and, in fact, something to be lionized.
All of which is to say, I really don’t think Bill Willingham is a voice worth hearing in 2021.
FABLES is back?? Really?? Is today International “fuck Arabs” day
On top of being made by an asshole, “Fables” is absolutely a TERRIBLE comic book series. Wretched. Humans deserve better than this.
The return of Fables is great and all, but let me draw your attention to the most important part. (Congrats, man!!) https://t.co/xrtXt7AFVP
Bill Willingham is a bad person and Fables is bad comics, these are independently true and reinforce one another.
Fables is back! Stop everything! Fables is back!!! A 12-issue series continuing from where 150 stopped, plus a 6-issue crossing Bigby with Batman! https://t.co/S2S0pMnIw4

I pirated Bug Fables (I do regret it) @PaperBugDev
and so I ended up buying it on Steam earlier today! :D

I would disagree that it “got away with everything,” even keeping mind how different the online comics landscape was in the early 2000s, there was a lot of critical discourse in places like Scans_Daily while FABLES was ongoing.
Oh I thought he'd just recycled that idiocy lol. Without knowing anything about his politics when someone told me Fables had some Israel/Palestine stuff in it I naively assumed that meant Fabletown was an allegory for Palestine.
Uncanny Uncle Slacks +1 for the Hellfire Gala@mcslackens @KurtBusiek
I am so goddamn excited for more Fables!
Sometimes it's hard to separate the art from the artist, and I get where other people are coming from, but I agree with you that boycotting everyone we disagree with is a bad idea.
