"A wish-I'd-thought-of-it premise, beautifully executed. Highly recommended for anyone who thinks that fantasy can do more than just help you escape the real world." Brian K. VaughanTom Taylor travels to the place where Frankenstein was conceived the same place his father wrote the first Tommy Taylor book. And, of course, that can't be just an innocent coincidence... Continuing the acclaimed new series from the award-winning LUCIFER team of Mike Carey (X-Men, HELLBLAZER) and Peter Gross (FABLES, Chosen)!

    The whirlwind of mystery and intrigue that tore through The Unwritten couldn't reasonably be sustained for the entire series, and it's good to see Mike Carey is more than capable of keeping the title entertaining when that eventuality manifests. The Unwritten #3 is one of the best comics I've read in a while and gives me no reason not to anxiously anticipate issue #4. Read Full Review

    In this issue, Carey and Gross make it clear that "The Unwritten" is going to be more than just Tom Taylor and it looks like this series is Vertigo's new 'must read' monthly. Read Full Review

    The mystery has brought me back so far, but I'm not sure how much longer I can be patient with the story. You don't read a book like this expecting an action extravaganza, but a little more forward movement would be nice. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Marlowe Lewis Jul 13, 2009

    This wonderful series co-created by Mike Carey and Peter Gross, who previously worked together on the Eisner Award nominated 'Lucifer', is really starting to blossom now. This book does not lend itself to a quick perusal because it's only through a careful reading do you get the full rich tapestry of their work. Not many comics leave you with a feeling of wanting to read the next issue straight away and any that do should be treasured. This is a book that you should be reading and I give it four stars.
