How about 'The Unwritten #1'?

It's a new Vertigo series by the Lucifer team of Mike Carey and Peter Gross, featuring a guy who's father wrote a series of Teenage Wizard novels based on him, but who discovers he may actually be magic, this first issue is only $1 too.

There's also House Of Mystery #13, a special anthology issue featuring a bunch of horror stories, or Secret Warriors, or, if you want to pick something to piss people off... Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers #1.

The intrawebz are weird.


We all had FC fatigue before the event was over, much less afterwards. Fuck you, DC, for deciding to write good stuff now!! You bastards!!!! :x

Anyone else notice Firestorm being coloured as white, it's nice to see it's continuing Final Crisis' tradition of colouring errors :roll:

Bad comic, review at weekend.

Unwritten sounds good. Everyone should be able to swing a buck.

We should have another recruitment type thing if we're going for The Unwritten, we might get a few more people reviewing if it's a $1 comic.

The Unwritten #1
as selected by McKegan[/center]
Written by Mike Carey
Art by Peter Gross
Cover by Yuko Shimizu

Everyone's read the Tommy Taylor books, the popular series of novels turned pop culture phenomenon about a boy wizard's adventures. And everyone knows about Tom Taylor, the boy the novels were based on, whose life was so overshadowed by his Dad's fictional epic that Tom's become a lame Z-level celebrity at best and a human viral marketing tool at worst.

But what if the resemblance goes even deeper? What if Tom is the boy-wizard of the books made flesh? And if that sounds crazy, why is it bringing him into the crosshairs of an ancient faction that has never been named in any book or text?

To discover the truth about himself, Tom must search through all the places in history where fiction and reality have intersected. And in the process, he'll learn more about that unwritten cabal and the plot they're at the center of –– a plot that spans all of literature from the first clay tablets to the gothic castles where Frankenstein was conceived to the self-adjusting stories of the internet.

A conspiracy mystery a la The Da Vinci Code, THE UNWRITTEN is the eagerly anticipated reunion of Mike Carey (X-Men, HELLBLAZER) and Peter Gross (FABLES, Chosen) – the team behind the multiple Eisner-nominated LUCIFER. Acclaimed artist Yuko Shimizu (SANDMAN: DREAM HUNTERS) joins the duo on covers, and the series kicks off with a 4-issue opening storyarc with the extra-sized 40-page debut promo-priced at only $1.00!

Vertigo | 40pg. | Color | $1.00 US | Mature Readers

I'm going to try and put up a thread Monday morning in The Asylum. Pretty sure that's when we'll have the most visibility traffic-wise.

I actually enjoyed it, it was one of the most fast-paced comics I've read in a while, it didn't let up for a moment, even when you thought it might, with his family, no, he's a jerk, move on, shoot more Russians, decent, if not spectacular.

Review to come maybe tomorrow, or Sunday if I'm lazy.

But it is decent. It is solid. it moves fast but isn't decompressed. It was pretty cool.

I said it was decent! Just not spectacular or amazing or anything, it was a very well-constructed action, chase comic, actually pretty similar to Ghost Rider #34 in a way.
