This Wednesday, the Review Group will be reviewing The Unwritten #1 from Vertigo. Since DC really wants you to check out the book, it's only going to cost you the low low price of one american dollar. Because the Review Group is awesome and we like for as many people to participate as inhumanly possible, we're inviting everyone who may not have checked out the group yet to give it a try. It's just $1 so there's no excuse not to!

Our thread for The Unwritten is already up here so while you're at your LCS throw down your dollar and come back to post your review. Maybe you'll even decide you want to participate again next week too. ;)

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!

I'm getting this, but as my books get sent to me once a month I will receive it about 3 weeks too late to review it. :(

That wasn't WW3. WW3 had robots and apes and polar bears riding motorcycles and zombie Hitler.
