Lizzie Hexam is one of three main characters in Mike Carey and Peter Gross's Vertigo-published series The Unwritten
, which began in 2009.
She didn't start out as a main character - although she has definitely become one - but she was
present in the series right from issue #1.
She is awesome because she's the catalyst for a great deal of the action that takes place in the first four issues. She asks thoughtful questions, is resourceful and enigmatic, saves the life of main-character-from-the-start Tom Taylor - the son of a writer (missing when the story starts) who wrote a popular series of novels centered around a boy wizard named Tommy
Taylor - at least once, and is generally great. She's also a London-dwelling character from a Dickens novel.Notes:
- The post might be slightly NSFW due to some of the language in the scans.
- Also, I apologize for the quality of one of the scans which I made myself. I'll get a better-quality one up as soon as I can. For now I just hope that what's going on is clear enough to be understood.( Lizzie is someone who certainly knows how to make an entrance. )
Long story short: Lizzie is a fascinating character. She's important to the story of The Unwritten
, and Mike Carey and Peter Gross are clearly willing to spend time and effort on her, which is awesome by itself. I can't wait to get the third trade in
March to pick up where I left off!( Scans used in this post )
