Fables to go into public domainMSN The Wrap

In a move with potentially large implications, the creator of the groundbreaking DC Comics series "Fables" says he has released it into the public domain. The transition will take effect Friday. "Fables," which originally ran from 2002-2015 as part of DC's Vertigo imprint, was created under a deal that gave Willingham sole ownership, the writer explained in a statement released Thursday. And the decision to give it away comes in response to what he described as years of bad faith dealings from DC Comics and its parent company (Warner Bros. Discovery).
