This single-issue story interlude, "When Rabbit Howls" stars reader-favorite character Pauly Bruckner. Sometimes it's hard to be a man - especially if all your recent experience is of being a rabbit. Pauly is back, and having his wishes come true may be just the start of his problems.

    The Unwritten is a book about the power of storytelling so it's no surprise this issue is so strong on that front. This issue is a backstory, a one-shot and a setup all rolled up into one. Mr. Bun fans will be thrilled and everyone else will enjoy another great issue. Either way, this book is one of my favorites and highly recommended. Read Full Review

    The Mr. Bun issues have all been well written, so it is probably no surprise that this is the best issue since "The Unwritten Fables" started. The post-Leviathan world is a bleak, bleak place, enough to make even a hard man-rabbit like Pauly Bruckner yearn for a happier, simpler place. But in a time where comics often use bleakness as an easy way to seem deep, Carey and Gross remind us that there is only one reason to make any creative choice: because it makes for a good story. Add in Pauly giving Wilson the attitude we wish Tom would give him and one hell of a cliffhanger, and Carey and Gross have reminded us why everyone was raving about this series a year or two back.
