The Unwritten #1: Tommy Taylor y la identidad falsa (2010)
3.8 of 5 Votes: 5
The premise of this is exciting, and it's shaping up to be a really interesting read for me. Tommy Taylor seems to have leapt from imagination into reality, but is still denying this for the time being. The theme here is that the stories we tell shape our reality, and that they are a lot more pow...
O Inescrito, Vol. 1: Tommy Taylor e a Identidade Falsa (2012)
3.8 of 5 Votes: 5
Interesting idea for a comic. The take on having a secret organization or "supernatural body" be at the root of all writing genius and dictating the direction of authors, is a very interesting one. In light of censorship issues and freedom of speech, it certainly calls into question the topic of ...
Tommy Taylor et l'identité factice (The Unwritten - Entre les lignes, #1) (2011)
3.8 of 5 Votes: 3
I stumbled onto this while in a Barnes and Noble out visiting family over Christmas break. I'm sorry I waited so long to jump into this one! Although the execution of the story isn't necessarily my style, the story is deeply engrossing. As a literary fanatic, I can't wait to see how this unfolds ...
The Unwritten #2: El topo (2011)

There are two reasons why I'm reading unwritten 2:- I ordered the 1st and 2nd volumes at the same time because I was so convinced that I'd love unwritten, and them when volume 1 came, I didn't.- I've been reading a lot of Kelly Link and Karen Russell the last few days and I needed something easy ...
Les infiltrés (2011)
4.01 of 5 Votes: 4
Wow! I liked this sequel even better than the first! The story is definitely picking up the pace as we move into volume 2 which begins with our hero being arrested in a foreign prison! I could not turn the pages fast enough! The artwork is stunning. You must give the images time, because more tim...
O Inescrito, Vol. 2: O Informante (2013)

Right. Spoilers here. Fair warning. .....You better have a really good reason for killing a couple children in your book. It's not just that killing kids in a story is mostly out of bounds. ( though it is, especially if they're strong secondary characters.) It's not just that as a parent, some bi...
The Unwritten #3: El muerto llama a la puerta (2011)
4.05 of 5 Votes: 3
This series is coming along well. It is not as brilliant as I had hoped, but it doesn't lose sight of the concept in favour of the drama (*koff* Fables *koff*). I wish there were more interludes with famous writers, but I loved the choose-your-own adventure issue. Things are chugging along well w...
O Inescrito, Vol. 3: O Retorno de um Morto (2013)
4.05 of 5 Votes: 3
This review is for books 1-5.This is what one might call the graphic novel for book lovers. The whole idea is that books fuel the world. That people can come together to all love a book, think about a book and that will fuel the magic that the world is lacking yet needs. But there's this group...
The Unwritten, Vol. 3: Dead Man's Knock (2011)
4.05 of 5 Votes: 3
I'm only three books in, but this is my favourite instalment yet. Lizzie Hexam is a good strong heroine and the Pick-a-Story format for revealing her background was an inspired and innovative format. I'm enjoying all the little details, like the DNN scrolling headlines (always more important, sho...
On to Genesis (2012)
4.06 of 5 Votes: 3
Volume 5 of my graphic novel experience was pretty mediocre. Still waiting for that volume that I put down and can't wait to get to the next. In this one Tom Taylor visits the early comic book days of The Tinker who appears to be similar to Superman. Turns out Tom's Dad was involved early on w...
O Inescrito, Vol. 5: Ontogênese (2000)

We're finally starting to get into the guts of where Tom gets his power from! Obviously it comes from the mass subconscious (as explained previously), but Wilson Taylor himself seems to be an agent of his power as well. How else could he produce two children capable of wielding magic?The first ch...

Tom Taylor and his partners, Lizzie and Richie are trying to learn more about Wilson's life and his purpose in creating Tom. They're lured into a trap when Wilson's estate goes up for auction, but manage to escape with their lives and the writer's journals. Reading them allows Tom to bring to l...
The Unwritten, Vol.4 - Leviathan (2011)
4.06 of 5 Votes: 2
Oh, this one is very clever! Very clever, indeed. Just when you're on the hook, the hook is ripped out and your thrown into a completely different ocean. This volume features one of my favorite characters of all time (no spoilers here, but BvM), and it also has one of my favorite issues of the se...
O Inescrito, Vol. 4: Leviatã (2013)
4.06 of 5 Votes: 3
The danger with a series like this is that the more adventurous and ambitious it gets, the greater the chance that it falls hard and deep. But this issue is a gem, with the storytelling becoming ever more creative and out there. And even though more mystery is introduced, there are answers (or at...
The Unwritten n. 6: Tommy Taylor e la guerra di parole (2000)
4.15 of 5 Votes: 3
A look deeper into the workings and history of Pullman and his cronies. The volume is divided in two, with alternating issues focusing on a story from the past that gives insight into the way stories work, and on Tommy's quest to get inside the headquarters of his enemies. All of the background s...
The Unwritten, Vol. 7: The Wound (2013)

And now I've read all the volumes my local library has. :P Time to hie me to a comic book shop!I like how each volume of this comic plays with a different fictive trope. This one does the classic jump-forward after the climactic ending of Vol. 6 and keeps us in the dark as to what happened next ...
The Unwritten, Vol. 8: Orpheus in the Underworld (2014)
4.03 of 5 Votes: 2
I had a bit of a "meh" moment around Volumes 5 and 6, but number 7 and this one have completely redeemed themselves for me. I still have to get to No. 9, which only came out a week or so ago, to see how the story line wraps up (I think that's the last of this series), but right now I recommend th...
The Unwritten: Tommy Taylor and the Ship That Sank Twice (2013)

I continue to enjoy The Unwritten although some volumes I enjoy immensely and others only somewhat. I was disappointed to read that the writers have apparently decided to continue the series despite earlier stated intentions to wrap it up. It's a shame, because serials - whether television shows,...
The Unwritten, Vol. 9: The Unwritten Fables (2014)

... That hole in Leviathan's belly really did confuse the "stories", as Tom finds himself in the middle of Alternative Timeline FABLES. A turbulent timeline with Mr Dark alive & well, SnowWhite as his Queen and other god-tier Fables coming to pay tribute...Unfortunately this volume is a rathe...
