Vertigo Favorites ‘Fables’ and ‘The Unwritten’ To Have Crossover Event

Details are sketchy regarding the crossover event, other than that it will start with “The Unwritten” #50 and will feature Tom Taylor and Bigby Wolf. DC also released this promo art, by Peter Gross and Mark Buckingham with colors by Chris Chuckry:

Crossover events seem more like the realm of “mainstream” superhero titles — but does the “Unwritten”/”Fables” story arc signify a move on Vertigo’s part to expand and solidify their own universe?
