I just discovered this comic, and I am in love! The Unwritten tells the story of how fiction shapes our world and sometimes enters in. This is the first collection of the series, and the next three are just as good.

A great concept for a story: A guy whose father created a character named after him struggles when he starts to realize he might actually be that character. I love how the literary world blurs into ours.

I love Vertigo comics and The Unwritten is no exception. A great premise, great characters and writing, each volume makes it more difficult to wait for the next one.

I knew from Carey and Gross's work on Lucifer that they could make an amazing story come to life, but still i couldn't anticipate just how much they'd do with The Unwritten. Protagonist Tom Taylor is sucked into a world where story and reality blur together. Be careful, it's likely that you'll be sucked in along with him!

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "A taut thriller that slyly plays off the real-world mania for imaginary ones like that of Harry Potter, Carey's new series undercuts the mythology of such all-pervasive media-hyped creations while at the same time hinting at a brilliantly imagined one of its own. Tom Taylor is the son of Wilson Taylor and the unwilling namesake of the protagonist in his dad's wildly popular 13-book fantasy series. The Tommy Taylor cottage industry of movies, video games, and geek-ridden conventions is given an extra dash of drama by Wilson's having mysteriously disappeared years before, leaving a cynical Tom (who inherited none of his millions) to eke out a grubby living at paid appearances. Carey's story (solidly illustrated by Gross) picks up speed fast when Tom realizes some elements of Wilson's stories might not be made up. By the time the first story is done, Carey has not only created a brisk and addictive story, sketched with crafty allusions to classic literature, but also neatly subverted the celebrity-worship manias of fantasy fandom and questioned the very nature of storytelling itself." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "[S]cripter Carey and artist Gross confidently launch The Unwritten with a first arc that boasts the most breathtaking gut-punch ending since that of The Fugue (2008)."
"Review" by , "Fascinating...one of the brainiest and most interesting comics of the year."
