Exclusive: Vertigo To Launch ‘Unwritten’ Original Graphic Novel In September

Spinning out of the pages of the popular Vertigo title “The Unwritten” is a brand new graphic novel: “The Unwritten: Tommy Taylor And The Ship That Sank Twice.”

The regular “Unwritten” creative team of Mike Carey and Peter Gross are on-board for this OGN, along with Kurt Huggins and Zelda Devon. Acclaimed artist Yuko Shimizu is also back for the cover.

Here’s the official description of the plot from Vertigo:

Exploring the Tommy Taylor novels in a visceral and direct way, this hardcover provides a great entry point for new readers and fans of classic literature. We pull back the curtain on how Tommy’s father, Wilson Taylor, devised his subversive literary masterpiece and reveal the blueprint of how a father gives his son vast power in order to accomplish a wider scheme. Partly told through Wilson’s harsh, intoxicating journal entries and juxtaposed with Tommy’s swashbuckling deep sea adventures with his trusty companions Peter and Sue, the story is at once a prequel and a parallel story to the ongoing series.

So look for this essential piece of the “Unwritten” puzzle come September!
