GRAPHIC NOVEL CORNER: THE UNWRITTEN!

GRAPHIC NOVEL CORNER: THE UNWRITTEN!

MIKE CAREY

THIS IS VERY COOL STUFF . . . A HARD CONCEPT TO PULL OFF, BUT ONE THAT SUCCEEDS NONE-THE-LESS . . .

UNWRITTEN VOL. 1: TOMMY TAYLOR AND THE BOGUS IDENTITY

Tom Taylor's life was screwed from go. His father created the Tommy Taylor fantasy series, boy-wizard novels with popularity on par with Harry Potter. The problem is Dad modeled the fictional epic so closely to Tom's real life that fans are constantly comparing him to his counterpart, turning him into the lamest variety of Z-level celebrity. In the final novel, it's even implied that the fictional Tommy will crossover into the real world, giving delusional fans more excuses to harass Tom.

When an enormous scandal reveals that Tom might really be a boy-wizard made flesh, Tom comes into contact with a very mysterious, very deadly group that's secretly kept tabs on him all his life. Now, to protect his own life and discover the truth behind his origins, Tom will travel the world, eventually finding himself at locations all featured on a very special map -- one kept by the deadly group that charts places throughout world history where fictions have impacted and tangibly shaped reality, those stories ranging from famous literary works to folktales to pop culture. And in the process of figuring out what it all means, Tom will find himself having to figure out a huge conspiracy mystery that spans the entirety of the history of fiction.


THE UNWRITTEN VOL. 2: INSIDE MAN

In this volume, Tom arrives at Donostia prison in Southern France and falls into the orbit of another story: The Song of Roland. Unfortunately for Tom, it's a story that ends with a massacre. .Tom discovers the true meaning of "out of the frying pan" after his escape from Donostia jail takes him to Stuttgart in 1940, a ghost city inhabited by the master liar of the Third Reich, Josef Goebbels, and a tortured soul who's crying out for rescue – or death . . .

THE UNWRITTEN VOL. 3: DEAD MAN'S KNOCK

The third volume of the critically acclaimed New York Times best selling new series from the Eisner-nominated creative team of Mike Carey and Peter Gross.

This volume includes “Dead Man’s Knock,” featuring the launch of the long-awaited new Tommy Taylor novel. A scheme by the Unwritten cabal to bring its author out of hiding works with dramatic results, including the momentous confrontation between Tom and Wilson.

Plus, learn the truth behind Lizzie Hexam, Tommy’s mysterious benefactor, in an interactive tale that lets the reader choose the story’s path.
