A New York Times Bestseller! One of Publishers Weekly's Hot Fall Books of 2013! Tom Taylor has lived his life being mistaken for Tommy Taylor, the boy wizard from the world-famous series of novels penned by Tom's long-lost father Wilson. However, after a series of strange events start to parallel the lives of both Taylors--fictional and real--Tom realizes that he might be the character on page made flesh. In this first-ever original graphic novel spinning off from the pages of the critically acclaimed THE UNWRITTEN series, writer Mike Carey explores the origins behind Tom's mysterious powers and the odyssey his father has sent him on.

Reviews

"Fantasy literature's wish-fulfillment machine gets coated in a sardonic darkness reminiscent of Lev Grossman.... 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.... The Unwritten is 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."--USA Today "A wish-I'd-thought-of-it premise, beautifully executed. Highly recommended for anyone who thinks that fantasy can do more than just help you escape the real world."--Brian K.
