Tommy Taylor has affected the lives of millions, winding his way into their dreams and fantasies. But sometimes dreams and fantasies are a poisoned cup. Follow Cosi and Leon on an adventure of a lifetime as they move into a new home, while at the prison of Donostia, innocence meets experience with tragic results...
Here’s a glimpse of what’s to come in THE UNWRITTEN #8:
Tommy Taylor, the boy wizard, is one of the most beloved fictional characters of all time and a pop culture phenomenon. Everyone has either read Wilson Taylor’s bestselling TOMMY TAYLOR books, seen the movies or played the videogames. Nearly everyone also knows the story behind the story: Wilson Taylor disappears after the publication of the thirteenth and final book in the TOMMY TAYLOR series, leaving his son, Tom, an orphan.
For those of you looking forward to what’s to come, a new storyline begins with issue #10! Tom finds himself in 1940 Stuttgart—a ghost city inhabited by the master liar of the Third Reich, Josef Goebbels.
Check out this imagery:
Tom’s locked up in Donostia Prison, but death still surrounds him. Placed in solo confinement he confronts the mystery of his own nature and the significance of the epic poem “The Song of Roland.”
Preview THE UNWRITTEN #7
By Mike Carey, author of THE UNWRITTEN
THE UNWRITTEN is all about the impact of stories on the real world. I’d hate to spoil what we’re doing by talking about the stories we’re going to feature (we’ve already touched on Frankenstein and Kipling’s Just So Stories), but I think everyone has a list of books that have changed their lives.
Did you know the CIA once pretended to shoot a movie adaptation of Roger Zelazny’s Lord of the Light as cover to smuggle US diplomats out of Iran? Go ahead, Google it.
I love that stuff. Random trivia about ways books and movies have affected the world. That’s why when Mike Carey and Peter Gross pitched me THE UNWRITTEN, they might as well have titled it, “The Pornsak Geek-Out Book.” When I pointed that out to Mike, he deadpanned that it’ll hopefully keep him from having to do too many rewrites.
