The most harrowing epic since the series' inception starts when Snow and Bigby's cub Therese receives a Christmas gift from an unknown admirer. This red plastic boat may hold the key to a deep, disturbing secret that will incite a series of soul-crushing events for the denizens of Fabletown.
This 8-issue storyline will boast a backup feature that follows Bufkin's (mis)adventures in Oz painted by fan-favorite Shawn McManus which will be a great entry point for new readers.
