sevenstories’ CBR-III Review #31: The Unwritten Vol. 1 by Mike Carey

The Unwritten is the first graphic novel I have bought, rather than borrowed from someone. I liked Watchmen and I really enjoyed the Fables series, both of which were recommended to me by someone who knew what they were talking about. The Unwritten is my first time striking off on my own and trying something I’d chosen myself. The Unwritten seemed to be something I would enjoy as it is packed with literary references and is based on the concept of real life and literature merging, something I’ve enjoyed in Fables but also in novels such as Jasper Ffordes work. All in all this is an enjoyable read but not one that makes me want to buy the next in the series. I think that Fables is superior when it comes to literary graphic novels and I would recommend that over The Unwritten. Nonetheless, it is a fun read with some nice touches.

    I just recently finished the first 3 volumes of this, needless to say I’m hooked. Great review and I’ll have to check out Fables.
