DC Comics/Vertigo: The Unwritten, Issue #17The Unwritten #17
Written By: Mike Carey & Peter Gross
Art By: Peter Gross & Ryan Kelly
Cover Art: Yuko Shimizu
Price: $3.99
Publisher: Vertigo Comics
Release date: September 15, 2010

Lizzie Hexam gets a choice of many different lives in The Unwritten #17 from Vertigo Comics. In the latest issue of The Unwritten, readers get an interesting journey through the life of one of the book’s supporting characters: Lizzie Hexam. The issue itself is not a standard 22-page issue, instead, readers get a chance to choose their own adventure. The issue is mapped out like a standard comic until a choice must be made to lead Lizzie’s life in one direction or another. The multiple choices make for an interesting read for fans of the series.

The Unwritten #17 itself was a very interesting read. Most comics are a quick read while this issue of The Unwritten was a pretty fulfilling read. The reader has multiple choices for the direction in which Lizzie life will lead. Certain choices lead Lizzie into a life of incarceration while others lead Lizzie down the right path of the series plotlines.

The Unwritten is one of the most creative comics being written today. Mike Carey has a very interesting story about a Harry Potter-esque world where literature and the real world are intertwined. Peter Gross’s layouts provide an intriguing structure for the fantastic finished product by Ryan Kelly, one of my favorite artists.

If you’re a fan of fantasy or even Harry Potter, give The Unwritten a read. Although this is a fantastic issue, if you haven’t read the series, start with the first trade paperback. It’s definitely worth it.
