Unwritten Is Well Written

Posted by on May 5, 2010 in Uncategorized

I just finished the first TPB for Unwritten, Vertigo’s new spotlight series. The series and the fifth issue in particular were just nominated for Eisner Awards. The story is very meta and alludes to the internet in interesting ways. The central premise is about literary geography.  By knowing the places where authors like Shelley and Kipling came up with their infamous creations the protagonist, annoyingly named Tom Taylor, can solve the mystery. The art is succinct and gorgeous. The narrative style is intriguing… two thumbs up!
