    The bulk of this series is about something that you will not find in this issue. It's a risk to pick this issue up cold because next issue isn't going to have Pauly in it or anything like this story. However, the overall theme of having literature toy with characters that are supposed to be something other than words on pages of a book is as prevalent here as in any other issue. I enjoyed this book very much and I definitely recommend this if you are looking for something out of the ordinary. That, and Pauly will most likely make you laugh a couple of times in the process.

    This is probably the strongest issue of Unwritten since issue #12, and that is even accounting for the last few issues, which have been very powerful. One of the things that make this series great is that it is written for smart readers, BUT it doesn't commit the cardinal sin of just being deliberately obtuse. The story is just served up and the work on the surface is enough to have a fun story with, but it has another level that allows you to think and ponder the meaning of everything. Read Full Review

    Bruckner is delectably devilish and fiendishly manipulative. He represents a character singularly possessed by bitter vengeance, and the torment that racks his brain manifests vividly in his demeanor through Davison and Chuckry's moody charcoal and pastel finishes over Peter Gross's impeccable layouts. The setting of the stairwell is also evinced in a way that relays the unearthly nature of it without leaving the reader feeling gipped by something that is purely psychotropic fluff. In fact, The Unwritten as a whole retains an uncanny palpability despite the prevalence of empyrean whimsy, and that is a truly remarkable accomplishment. Carey and Gross are making readers very "happy ever after" with this book. Read Full Review
