Mike Carey and Peter Gross have created some of my favorite comic book series I’ve had the pleasure of reading. In my opinion, anything they collaborate on turns to gold, and The Unwritten is no exception.
Don’t be fooled by the obvious Harry Potter or Christopher Robin references at the beginning. This story is much more convoluted than it appears at first glance. The authors are masters at creating original worlds and compelling characters, and this modern illustrated classic has both in spades.
Do yourself a favour and read this fantastical tale today. You’ll be glad you did.
