Kurzbeschreibung

24. September 2013 The Unwritten
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.

Pressestimmen

“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. Vaughan, Y: The Last Man

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great for getting over the horrible Fables crossover. 16. November 2013
Von tgw - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If you are anything like me, you hated the fables crossover. I lost interest in that series before its 100 issue, so seeing my 2nd favorite comic (second only to CHEW) being shoehorned into that series was met with some hesitation. It was greatly founded as issues 50-54 have been FABLES: featuring a character from unwritten once in a while. The only redeeming grace of it was that it ended in a VERY FORCEFUL MANNER. secondly, if the events of Fables are occurring in Unwritten, then that kinda overshadows the unwritten, and I wasn't quite sure if they were doing an alternate universe thing or if "unwritten is in the real world, but tommy got sucked into the pages of Fables..."

But this review is not about those issues, I mention them because they made the return to form that much sweeter.

I loved this book as it brought me back to the story and mythology of stories that I love. This is a prequel as you should be aware, and the next part is probably the most complimentary I can be: This feels like it was set in stone from the get-go. Often times prequels feel forced and contrived (oh, you mean Yoda and Chewbacca fought together on the planet Kashyyyk? Okay...) But this feels like it was written before the first issue was published and only now in the series could we appreciate its worth. I know that may sound grandiose and obviously it wasn't written until just recently, by it feels right. And it feels good.

I love this book.

One of my favourite aspects of this book is that it somewhat addresses the harry potter similarity. Not directly, but early on it expresses the Idea that the tommy taylor series is meant to be influential, and thus harry potter is in fact inspired by *it*, not the other way around.

Have I mentioned five stars yet?

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Origin of Tommy Taylor 24. September 2013
Von Scott Knight - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Tommy Taylor and the Ship That Sank Twice is an original graphic novel by Mike Carey. It is not a collection of issues from the series The Unwritten. Rather than continue the story of Tom Taylor and his friends in the current storyline, The Ship That Sank Twice functions as an origin story. However, it's an origin story for both the real and the fictional Tommy Taylor.

In one story thread, Carey descibes Wilson Taylor's plan to have a son while simultaneously writing a book about a fictional version of the same son. Taylor's journal describes the process of writing, publishing, and publicizing his first Tommy Taylor novel, while trying to make sure his son Tommy echoes the fictional version. It's a pretty interesting look into Wilson's plan that is only hinted at in the ongoing series.

The other story thread is the storyline for the first Tommy Taylor novel. This is the best part of this graphic novel. It's a lot of fun to be able to read the story of Tommy's first years and his introduction to his friends Sue and Peter.

The background to the fictional Tommy Taylor adds depth to the overall series, as does the look into WIlson Taylor and Tommy's birth. The Unwritten keeps getting better and better as Carey reveals more and more of the greater story taking place. What started out as a Harry Potter pastiche (at least as far as appearances go) has grown into a greater look at the power of stories in our lives.

I highly recommend this book to fans of The Unwritten, in addition to fans of Neil Gaiman's Sandman and other works.

I received a preview copy of this book from DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautifully Illustrated And Fascinating History of Tommy Taylor 24. September 2013
Von Talvi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Unwritten: Tommy Taylor and the Ship That Sank Twice might sound, upon cursory inspection, a graphic novel treatment of the story that haunted the Tommy Taylor of the Unwritten series. But anyone who has read the superb Unwritten series would guess that there would be far more to it than that. And they would be correct.

This is a tale in two: the origin story of both Tommys - one in real life and one in fiction. The wizard boy story is told from Tommy's perspective as he grows up in a castle not knowing the truth of his famous' parents heritage. The real life Tommy's life is told from his father's perspective - notes on how he slowly but surely wrote out the boy's mother, molded the child, and all but turned his son into the fictional creation. While the wizard Tommy story was interesting (purposely meant to be Harry Potterish), it was the father Wilson's single minded determination ("I've already had Tom fitted with spectacles, although his eyesight is perfect. All visual convergence with Tommy to be encouraged") that this book really has poignancy. It explains a lot about the real Tommy Taylor.

The fantasy story was interesting and had a lot of depth. It was also beautifully illustrated. I found I wanted to explore the pages and really take in all the artwork. But in the end, it is the story that grips and holds you.

I don't believe you need to have read the Unwritten series first - but the series does unwind in a way that many might find more satisfying without the answers given this book. As well, I feel there is a lot more pathos to be found in this book about the real Tommy Taylor character if you know what he has to/will go through when he grows up.

In all, some of the best work out there in the graphic novel format.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Flashback Thrill! 13. März 2014
Von Nick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This whole series is sooo good, I am excited to read more. I was apprehensive about this book, because it was not clear that it was a new or different book from the others, I worried that it might be a review or compilation of previous books. But, to my delight, this book is all new and goes back to his childhood as both a fictional character and as a child (what?). I just keep getting a head rush from these books and I highly recommend this one to add more dimension to the main character in this series.
