Jack climbs down from his beanstalk just in time for the return of Telltale's adventure series The Wolf Among Us based on the Fables comic series.

It's been a long wait; the first episode of The Wolf Among Us, entitled Faith, was released about three months ago, but Telltale promised that we wouldn't be seeing a second episode until after the holidays.

The holidays have come and gone, and Telltale is finally ready to start teasing the release of episode two, Smoke & Mirrors, which will be coming out in the first week of February. Telltale also encouraged fans to keep an eye out for one of the series more popular character, Jack, this time around.

"The episode is looking really good," wrote founder Kevin Bruner on the company website. "We are very concerned about the long delay for this episode, but this is one of those occasions where several things conspired against us (not to mention the additional delays due to the holidays). I won't dive into the details, but it’s been an unusual and specific set of circumstances and we do not anticipate it happening again as we go forward with the rest of the season."

Our Take
This is obviously good news for fans of the series, who have been patiently waiting for a second episode for some time. The first week of February is only a few weeks away. However, I'm a little disappointed that it took Telltale this long to release a second episode, and I hope that the wait for episode three is considerably shorter. However, it is refreshing to see the developer acknowledge the fault.
