Lot’s of great comics and lots of great press coverage this week!
You are here
Magic, murder, adventure, literature. For those unfamiliar with The New York Times bestseller THE UNWRITTEN, this series by the celebrated team of Mike Carey and artist Peter Gross, takes familiar themes and stories of all genres and gives them a completely unexpected and fascinating literary twist.
And here’s the big finish -- the last of Mike and Peter’s three-part trip down their Vertigo memory lane – from the pitches that didn’t stick when they tried to work together again after Lucifer to celebrating The Unwritten – the second volume having debuted on the New York Times Best-Seller’s list last week! MIKE CAREY Crossing Midnight # 1 – 19 (2006)
Ok, part two of Mike Carey and Peter Gross’ trip down memory lane in honor of the release of The Unwritten: Inside Man and leading up to the release of the eagerly anticipated (by us as much so as everyone else) The Unwritten # 17.
The second volume of THE UNWRITTEN, Inside Man comes out today everywhere books are sold and since THE UNWRITTEN is about the story behind stories, I thought it’d be fun to celebrate Volume 2 by going through the secret origin of Mike Carey and Peter Gross’ history at Vertigo; a kinda 3-part series about and how they went from individually breaking in to writing a New York Times Bestseller.
A lot happens in THE UNWRITTEN #16 and I’m not just saying that. It’s true. When Tom and Wilson Taylor come face-to-face, secrets are revealed, friends and enemies unmask, and chickens come home to roost. Well, maybe not chickens in the bird sense. Coinciding with all that, the launch party for the 14th Tommy Taylor novel is about to take place. But what’s the name of the book again? Now for a look inside: [gallery link="file"]
The Witch Queen seems to think that Fig is very important, but the more time they spend together, the more the Witch Queen has her doubts in House of Mystery #28 written by Matt Sturges and artist by Luca Rossi. Plus, this month's short story is illustrated by cover artist Esao Andrews (FABLES: 1001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL) and stars the dearly departed Poet.
Over the years the Vertigo imprint has produced smart, shocking and critically acclaimed series such as The Sandman, Preacher, Y: The Last Man, Hellblazer and Fables, to name a few. Now, Vertigo’s latest ongoings are poised to join those legendary ranks.
