Created by Mike Carey and Peter Gross, THE UNWRITTEN has been called “a roller-coaster ride through a library, weaving famous authors and characters into a tale of mystery that is, at once, oddly familiar yet highly original,” by USA TODAY.
Some of the most talked about issues have been the fabulous one-offs—from the Willowbank Tales of Mr. Bun to the Pick-A-Story origin of Lizzie Hexam. In the vein of those amazing issues, Vertigo will publish a series of 5 interconnected issues that will enhance the reading experience of the ongoing series.
Starting this November, THE UNWRITTEN will be published twice-monthly--with issue #31, followed by #31.5 followed by issue #32, followed by issue #32.5, and so on, through issue 36.
Issue #31 begins Tommy Taylor and the War of the Words, a game-changing story event. Tom Taylor goes to war against the cabal that has tormented, imprisoned and tried to destroy him - and it's far more than just a war of words! To have a hope of winning, Tom must use every weapon he can get hold of, but even storybook magic carries its own risks.
In the special .5 issues, Tom's crusade plays out against the backdrop of the cabal's sinister secret history and delves deep into the dark past of some of the series' major players. When it's all over, very little will remain Unwritten.
Written by Mike Carey, each of these issues will feature artistic contributions from some of the most talented artists in the industry, including ongoing series artist and co-plotter, Peter Gross. Yuko Shimizu will continue her gorgeous work on covers for each issue.
