The UnwrittenYOU SHOULD BE READING…

The Unwritten
Written by Mike Carey
Art by Peter Gross
Cover by Yuko Shimizu
DC/Vertigo Comics

In The Unwritten, Mike Carey weaves a fantastic narrative in which Tom Taylor finds his life unraveling one strand at a time when fans of his father’s book series believe him to be the novel’s protagonist come to life.

The premise is brilliant and to put it in our reality’s terms, “What if J.K Rowling had a son named Harold Potter and fans around the world thought the Harry Potter series was real and based on the actual adventures of the real life Harold Potter?” I guess you can say it’s like when kids go to Disneyland and get Donald Duck’s autograph thinking this guy in a duck costume is the same cartoon they marvel at in their home.

DC’s Vertigo website has the the first issue as a FREE download [downloadable PDF – 22MB] and you can also purchase the series’ first five issues collected in one volume — Unwritten Vol. 1: Tommy Taylor and the Bogus Identity — for $9.99. Check it out for yourself and watch Tom Taylor become Unwritten.

I’ve loved pretty much every issue of The Unwritten (9th issue just came out), in particular, how it makes you appreciate the art form of the written word. It pays respect to storytelling and to my knowledge, there’s no other comic out today that shows you the power of the pen like this book.
