The Unwritten # 6
That sums it up for me. The concept has never grabbed me from the start. The literary allusions, references, and characters does nothing for me.
That's a shame really, because this is not badly written. Far from it, it's written very well, but if I have no interest, what can ya do? And I've wanted to like this. I bought and read the first 4 issues before deciding I had to cut it loose. This issue does nothing to change my mind. I did like the Browning stuff at the beginning though, because I'm a sucker for that poem because I'm a even bigger sucker for the Dark Tower series by Stephen King
The art is pretty good. You can tell what everyone feels by their facial expressions and everything is just detailed nicely. The use of webpages and blog type things in the story is also pretty cool to me
The praise pages at the front of the book annoyed me. One or two quotes is cool, but that was ridonkulious. I get it, people like a Mike Carey written Vertigo book. Who'd have thunk it
Of course my annoyance probably comes from the fact that everyone but seemingly me likes this book, but I digress
