    It must be hard to come up with such a broad and interesting world while containing it to one house, even if that happens to be a very large house. With so many different story directions possible, as well as characters to explore, the idea of being able to follow along monthly excites me. If you're a fan of “The Unwritten” or of Fantasy/Magic stories then I think this is a book that you will absolutely enjoy. Its certainly well worth the price for something this beautiful and it comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    It remains to be seen if it will match the quality of their previous collaborations, but it's an intriguing read with only a few dragging moments in the first issue. Read Full Review
