Based on the award-winning Fables comic book series by Bill Willingham (published by DC Comics' Vertigo imprint), The Wolf Among Us is a dark, often brutally violent, and mature take on the characters and creatures of fairytale and legend.

You play as Bigby Wolf - THE big bad wolf and sheriff of Fabletown, a hidden community of fairy tale characters exiled to New York City.

After responding to a domestic disturbance call, your world is shaken by the grisly murder of a fellow Fable.
