Tom's search for the source of his father's power has ended in disaster, as he joins an eclectic group of doomed mariners in a trap that they all should have seen coming. But there's one great whale he hasn't even met yet, and it's the most powerful of all. Maybe it has the answer to Tom's question if he lives long enough to ask it.

    I liked the direction this book has taken since Tom seems to have been trapped in literary scenes but this issue leaps that by a lot. This is one of those comic books that really rewards sticking with the series for a couple of years. I would think that a new reader wouldn't feel the same way but still the raw ideas in the book make the comic enjoyable for anyone. This is a great book. Read Full Review

    "The Unwritten" ends its current storyline with a grim message about the nature of stories, and how "Happily ever after" is something that a book's hero can strive toward, but never truly achieve. It's a fate hanging over poor Tom Taylor's head, along with his friends who we last saw in some rather dire straits. Can Tom avoid his father's warning that happy endings are mythical? I'm looking forward to reading more of "The Unwritten" to find out, and issues like this are a good reminder why. Read Full Review
