a dozen Eisner Awards, including Best Writer, Best New Series, and numerous wins for Best Serialized Story, the FABLES universe

Set prior to the events seen in the first issue of the FABLES comic book series, The
Wolf Among Us: A Telltale Games Series puts players in the role of Bigby Wolf, a man once more infamously
known as The Big Bad Wolf. Now the sheriff of a hidden community in New York City, exiled from the land of fairy
tales, Bigby is tasked by the bureaucrat Snow White to keep order within a society of mythical creatures and characters trying
to remain undetected in the world of the mundane. From a chain-smoking member of 'The Three Little Pigs,' to a slippery
Mr. Toad itching for his next wild ride, The Wolf Among Us examines the lives of beings straight from the pages
of myth and lore, now trying to survive on the meanest and most run-down streets of New York.
Among Us: A Telltale Games Series is licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on behalf of DC
Entertainment, and is rated ‘PEGI 18’ for Extreme violence, Violence towards defenceless people, and Strong language.
