Spanning 7 volumes and over 50 issues, The New York Times bestselling comic book series THE UNWRITTEN by the celebrated team of Mike Carey and artist Peter Gross, has riffed on the epic poem, the coming of age story, the Choose Your Own Adventure, the fantasy and murder mysteries alike, with cameo appearances by Rudyard Kipling, Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde and other literary figures.

Now,  all the magic of that series is captured in the standalone original graphic novel, THE UNWRITTEN: TOMMY TAYLOR AND THE SHIP THAT SANK TWICE, by series creators Carey and Gross. The curtain is pulled back and secrets are revealed. Weaving Wilson’s harsh, intoxicating twenty-five-year-old journal entries featuring his plans for his subversive literary masterpiece along with pages from the Tommy Taylor novels featuring Tommy’s early years and swashbuckling deep sea adventure with his trusty companions Peter and Sue, Carey and Gross will captivate readers—confirming the power of storytelling is as strong as any spell.

THE UNWRITTEN: TOMMY TAYLOR AND THE SHIP THAT SANK TWICE arrives in comic stores September 18th and is available everywhere books are sold September 24th.

And for fans of the series, THE UNWRITTEN/FABLES storyline continues with the epic conclusion arriving with issue #54 in October.
