With this super standalone graphic novel, Carey and Gross explore the roots of their mythology."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review Praise for Mike Carey's The Unwritten "Incredibly fun and ridiculously addictive.... For fans of literature (from classics to contemporary) this series is worth a read....
