Everyone's read the Tommy Taylor books, the popular series of novels turned pop culture phenomenon about a boy wizard's adventures. And everyone knows about Tom Taylor, the boy the novels were based on, whose life was so overshadowed by his Dad's fictional epic that Tom's become a lame Z-level celebrity at best and a human viral marketing tool at worst. But what if the resemblance goes even deeper? What if Tom is the boy-wizard of the books made flesh? And if that sounds crazy, why is it bringing him into the crosshairs of an ancient faction that has never been named in any book or text? To discover the truth about himself, Tom must search through all the places in history where fiction and reality have intersected. And in the process, he'll learn more about that unwritten cabal and the plot they're at the center of -- a plot that spans all of literature from the first clay tablets to the gothic castles where Frankenstein was conceived to the self-adjusting stories of the internet. A conspiracy mystery a la The Da Vinci Code, THE UNWRITTEN is the eagerly anticipated reunion of Mike Carey (X-Men, HELLBLAZER) and Peter Gross (FABLES, Chosen) - the team behind the multiple Eisner-nominated LUCIFER. Acclaimed artist Yuko Shimizu (SANDMAN: DREAM HUNTERS) joins the duo on covers, and the series kicks off with a 4-issue opening storyarc with the extra-sized 40-page debut!

BONUS REVIEW by Stephen Banas

I absolutely love love loved this book! For starters it was only 99¢ and 40 pages of solid, A+ material. Mike Carey and Peter Gross are back together again and it shows. From page one, panel one I became immersed and lost in this issue, in a good way. Carey opens this story up in a very unique manner. At first you believe you are reading the main story where three children are caught up in the frenzy of a heated battle in a fantasy world, which is fantastic by its own right, but are then tossed into the modern world at a fantasy convention through the perspective of the main character Tommy Taylor. What follows is a brilliant thrill ride that leaves you seething for more and I already cannot wait for what hopefully becomes month after month of this book for a very long time.
I give it 10 out of 10 Grahams
