"The Unwritten Fables," a five-part The Unwritten story arc in which Tom Taylor meets the cast of Bill Willingham's Fables, begins...

'Let's just say that my wish list of "Fables" characters that I was really, really desperate to write was very large, and thanks to Bill's generosity, I was able to write all or most of them.'

- Mike Carey

Dramatis Personae. The Setup/Exposition. Rising Action/Complication. Conflict/Climax. Resolution. Denounement.

A major story arc for the Unwritten comes to a close.

Per the last issue....
Tom Taylor has finally destroyed the Cabal, and is now getting a rematch against Pullman at the bottom of the pit.

"The War of Words" ends...

...not without a price. )

The War of Words begins. With the Cabal making an open attempt to kill everyone Tom Taylor has contacted during this quest ( and I do mean everyone), Tom Taylor is thru hiding.

To quote Manitou Raven: "We make great war."

Tom Taylor strikes back! )

My personal pick of the week. And with the last Harry Potter movie out and people talking about the Potter books again, some of us can appreciate unseen connections.

#27 came out this week, and like any good episode of Lost or the X-Files it left a LOT more questions that need answering than it actually answered. But questions WERE answered and revelations were jaw dropping.

I'm sorry to say that for those of you who aren't picking this up, my post will do you no justice, but hopefully you can make the leap of faith and logic and see the implications.

(forgive me if it is lengthy)

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.

- 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 January March to pick up where I left off!

Since [personal profile] suzene recently gave us a brief look at what's happening in The Unwritten #12 (and despite the fact that since "unwritten" still describes, for the moment, one of my papers for this semester), I thought I'd do a post about what Mike Carey and Peter Gross have in store for us for next week and the two months after that.

ETA: The images should be displaying correctly now.

Three pretty covers and their solicits under the cut )

For all trade-waiters (and trade collectors!) out there, The Unwritten Vol. 2: Inside Man (which collects issues 6-12) has been solicited for August 11. I'm looking forward to it very, very much. ♥

Title: Unwritten #12 - Eliza Mae Hertford's Willowbank Tales (DC-Vertigo, 2010, 22 pages)
Creators: Mike Carey (writing), Peter Gross, Kurt Huggins & Zelda Devon (art)
Availability: On sale now

So, are you guys tired of people talking about what a fantastic series Unwritten is yet? Because, really, it is.

And, somehow, even moreso when it takes a breather from the main story. So we start with a man rabbit man minor character who tried to steal Tommy Taylor's map in the past and wound up paying an unexpected price.

You can't even keep the fucking geography straight! )

A bit of warning on this issue: it ends up in a pretty dark place. Well worth reading, just maybe not alone at night, depending on how active your imagination is after the lights go out.

We finished the last issue on a cliffhanger, so naturally it makes sense for us to pick up with the life story of Rudyard Kipling. Read more... )

This is my first s_d 3.0 post, and I believe only my second s_d post overall, since I don't have regular access to a scanner. But, I've got a scanner now and I thought I'd share a little love for "The Unwritten".

We join our hero in Geneva where, after a quick excerpt Frankenstein, we are introduced to a group of horror authors meeting up to discuss their trade in the castle that saw both the creation of that monster and of Tommy Taylor...

Pull up a chair and have some scans from the second issue of The Unwritten, where things are starting to get a little more... inexplicable.
