Vertigo Presents FAIREST VOL. 3: THE RETURN OF THE MAHARAJA
This June, New York Times bestselling and award-winning creator Bill Willingham presents FAIREST VOL. 3: THE RETURN OF THE MAHARAJA starring the beautiful, deadly ladies from his hit series FABLES. Balancing horror, humor, and adventure in the FABLES tradition, FAIREST explores the secret histories of Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Cinderella, the Snow Queen, Thumbelina, Snow White, Rose Red and others.
When Nalayani seeks the help of the Maharaja to save her village from the Dhole, she uncovers a secret that could change the Fables Universe forever: long-thought dead Prince Charming is still alive!
