After resisting buying this comic book for a long time, I spent $1 to put it in the collection and settle the issue! The five stories here are indeed not fables: Red Riding Hood, Rumplestiltskin, The Real Princess, Raponsel, and Hey Diddle, Diddle. They are written and illustrated by various people. In Red Riding Hood, it turns out that Grandma's is a Martial Arts School for Young Ladies. The wolf hardly knows what hits him! Raponsel lets down her hare instead of her hair. The T of C and the story title have Raponsel. I had already written it up here as a typo; it turns out that there is a Rapunzel and a Raponsel. The parodies here are fun if somewhat brainless. It turns out that there is a 160-page hardcover titled Fractured Fables by Bill Willingham.
