DC Entertainment and Telltale Games are teaming up to publish a game titled The Wolf Among Us, based on the Fables comic series that runs under DC’s Vertigo imprint. Fables tells the story of fairy tale characters that have been forced out of the land of fairy tales.


The Wolf Among Us is set prior to the first issue of Fables, and lets the player play as Bigby Wolf, once known as “the Big Bad Wolf”. Bigby is now the sheriff of a hidden community in New York, exiled from the land of fairy tales, and tasked by Snow White to maintain order in a society of creatures trying to remain undetected in the everyday world.


Other characters featured in The Wolf Among Us is a chain-smoking member of the Three Little Pigs and a car-stealing Mr. Toad. The game is in development for the PC/MAC, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.

  • Telltale hasn’t done much wrong to my knowledge, so this should be another stellar outing on their part and using an already established series at that.

  • Kalis Konig

    Neat. I still have the first Collected Edition in my Comic back log. If the comics are as great as people claim, I will be looking forward to this.

  • JustThisOne

    First of all, this looks as noir as all hell. (I luvit.) Second of all, Telltale games is already a bro in my book. This is already off to a good start.

    the source material is very good, so i’m looking forward to what Telltale will do with it.

  • Göran Isacson

    … WOW, can’t say I saw THAT coming. The rich world of Fables combined with Telltales storytelling clout can probably create something REAL interesting… looking forward to this one.

  • The big bad wolf as the sheriff…. I don’t feel safe lol.
