2013 Stumptown Comics Fest Guest Profile - Bill Willingham

BillWillingham.jpgEvery Wednesday, join us as we highlight and celebrate a guest for the 2013 Stumptown Comics Festival. This week we turn our attention to Bill Willingham.

With roots deep in popular culture, Eisner award-winning writer and artist Bill Willingham first made a name for himself with the series Elementals from Comico. While he received peer acclaim with his work Pantheon from Lone Star Press, it was in the early 2000s that Willingham shot into comics stardom with Fables, from DC Comic's Vertigo imprint. A true crossover hit, Fables combined beloved fairy-tales characters living in the modern era with current social and political commentary. Having recently surpassed a decade in publication, Fables continues to be Vertigo's best-selling and critically praised series. Showing his commitment to creator-focused work, Willingham's Fables spin-off series Fairest showcases comic book talent from all over the globe as they explore characters like Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and other beloved fairy-tale characters.
