Biographie de l'auteur

Writer Mike Carey, best known for his work on Vertigo's Lucifer and Hellblazer, has made his mark in comics. Born in Liverpool, England, Carey worked as a teacher for fifteen years before gaining regular work writing for several independent companies. In 1999 he wrote the Sandman spinoff miniseries Sandman Presents: Lucifer. This led to the Lucifer solo title which earned him a nomination for the 2001 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards - Best Writer. The Fourth Rail said of his work, "Carey gives the characters in all of the stories believable motivations and characterization." His additional Vertigo projects have included Faker and Crossing Midnight. In 2007, he helped DC launch the Minx line of graphic novels for teen girls with the Regifters. Beyond DC, Carey was also recognized for his work on Marvel's X-Men titles. He makes his home in London with his wife, Lin, and his children, Davey, Ben and Louise.

Tommy Visits the Underworlds 4 février 2014
Par Scott Knight - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Once again, Mike Carey has worked his magic with The Unwritten. The latest volume has a couple of storylines running through it. The first arc is a story with Tommy, Richie, Didge, and Danny trying to help Tommy find a way to the Underworld in the Austrailian outback.

The second arc concerns Didge and Richie trying to solve a case where zombies keep killing people. It seems the imminent death of Leviathan is leaving a void and various powers are rushing to fill it. Madame Rausch also shows up again, and is seeming to be ready to assume a larger role in Tommy’s story.

The main story concerns Tommy Taylor and his quest to rescue Lizzy Hexam from the Underworld. Carey takes this opportunity to give his spin on the Orpheus myth. Along the way, Tommy comes face-to-face with harpies, Baron von Munchausen, two murdered children, Elizabeth Bennett, and Pauly the rabbit, who wants revenge on both Tommy and his dad. He also encounters the evil Pullman again. As Tommy, Lizzy, and Pauly make their way through Hades, they find a larger revelation about Leviathan. This volume ends with a wonderful cliffhanger that left me anxious for the next volume in the series.

This was not the best volume in The Unwritten series. In fact, it seemed to be a transitional story, setting future events up and starting them in motion. Still, Carey’s not-quite-perfect is still fun to read, and better than most other writers at their best. Gross’s art, as usual, adds to the mood of the story.

I would recommend this volume to fans of The Unwritten, but it is definitely not a good starting place for new readers. If you find yourself in that group, then find the first volume and settle in for a great ride.

I received a preview copy of this book from DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.
Quite possibly my favorite volume yet 24 juin 2014
Par S. Robert Katz - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I really loved this installment. This is one of my favorite series, and I find myself enjoying it more and more as the story unfolds and the mysteries unravel. It should go without saying that this is not an entry point for new readers. Heck, if you're a new reader coming in any later than the second volume, I'm not sure what you're thinking. This is definitely a series worth reading and worth reading from the beginning. To be honest, I felt like the series started off a bit slow for me and didn't really hook me until the 12th issue.

Notably, the 12th issue was a bizarre one-off story that departed from the primary narrative to tell the story of a foul-mouthed bunny "trapped" in a children's storybook. It was strange and fascinating, and it instantly drew me into a series that was unraveling too slowly to hold my interest. But that chapter was more than enough to get me hooked, and I'm very glad it did. Appropriately enough, here we finally get the resolution to that story. It all makes sense now, and it was worth the wait. The more this book unfolds, the more satisfying it is. I couldn't put this volume down.

As a side note, I can't get over the finishes for the middle two issues of this book. Peter Gross is a strong storyteller. His art is generally entirely solid, if unspectacular. One thing I like about it is that it doesn't get in the way of the writing, which for me is the star by a long shot. To be honest, at times even the colors by Chris Chuckry outshine the line art. It definitely gets the job done, but it's not flashy and not usually much to look at. But these finishes by Dean Ormston were an absolute treat. I don't know how Gross would feel about an inker/finisher transforming his work as drastically as Ormston did (a few panels aside, it basically looked nothing like Gross's work) but the result is some of the best comic illustration I've seen in a long time. Bold, distinctive, moody, textured. A lot of things Gross is not. I just wanted to sit and stare at the pages, which I can rarely say of The Unwritten.

It feels odd writing a review of the eighth volume of a finite series (I believe it will comprise 11 volumes in total) because at this point I think if you're still reading you'll be in it for the long haul. But I found this volume to be supremely enjoyable. There are three stories here. There's some smaller payoffs here and a real sense that we're heading towards a truly rewarding conclusion. The book ends on a cliffhanger where Tom lands in the Fables universe. As someone who doesn't read Fables, I'm pretty ambivalent about it, but I'm sure readers of that series couldn't be more excited for the next volume. I'll be along for the ride, and I'm excited to see where this story ends up. Little payoffs like the ones in this volume go a long way towards keeping the momentum going.

Mike Carey's series just keeps delivering! This is a comic that every person who loves reading and some experimentation in writing will adore.
The Dante Walking Tour Volume of the Series 21 octobre 2014
Par Jennifer Grey - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Carey and Gross take the reader on a tour of a variety of literary hells in the eighth installment of their meta-loving comic The Unwritten but for all the traveling Tom does looking to reunite with his lost Lizzie, we don't seem to get very far. Still, there's an excellent bit with zombies and what may possibly be the best cameo by an Austen character in the history of all fiction, which should help keep the reader distracted until the authors finally start moving this thing along again.
and that's something that great writers like Peter Carey can make us look forward ... 27 mai 2015

Unwritten is not simply inventive, it is tremendous work in constant reinvention. It is not breaking entirely new ground, but that only serves to reinforce the larger narrative arc about the centrality of stories to human development and culture. Everything that is old will be new again, and that's something that great writers like Peter Carey can make us look forward to. Terrific stuff, and loads of fun besides.
