The Vol. 1 wiki last edited by pikahyper on 10/08/13 11:08PM View full history

Tom Taylor's life was screwed from the word go. His father created the mega-popular Tommy Taylor boy-wizard fantasy novels. But dad modeled the fictional epic so closely to Tom that fans constantly compare him to his counterpart, turning him into a lame, Z-level celebrity. When a scandal hints that Tom might really be the boy-wizard made flesh, Tom comes into contact with a mysterious, deadly group that's secretly kept tabs on him all his life. Now, to protect his life and discover the truth behind his origins, Tom will travel the world, to all the places in world history where fictions have shaped reality. From Bill Willingham to Ed Brubaker, from the LA Times to Ain't It Cool News, THE UNWRITTEN has won over fans, critics and pros. Now, don't miss the first collected edition featuring the first five issues of the overwhelmingly acclaimed Vertigo series.

Harry Potter meets LoEG, written like its a BKV story 0

The unwritten is Harry Potter meets LoEG, written like its a BKV story.  What does that mean?  Well Tommy Taylor is like the new Vertigo Harry Potter and Harry Potter was a kid friendly Tim Hunter.  So this is like a recreation of a Vertigo classic and I love it!  It is League of Extraordinary Gentlemen because of the literary character who are walking the world.  It is also like a Brian K. Vaughan Book, because BKV's main characters always know a lot of "unless"...
