The Unwritten #34.5 (Bloody Keep Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Mon Mar 05, 2012 8:01 am

This ‘Point 5’ issue was probably the one that revealed the most about the hidden back-story of this title. We see a young Wilson Taylor (and find out that what we thought was a pseudonym he used in the superhero arc is his real name) in the trenches of WW1, and Carey shows us how he discovered the secrets of the story and leviathan. The WW1 setting was of course very evocative and Carey got across well the horrors of the trenches and the incompetence of the officers. Gary Erskine’s art was a great fit too, he’s drawn several WW1 comics for Garth Ennis and he knows the milieu. The stand-out moments of this issue were when the world of story invaded the real world, when the Angels showed up above the battle, and then when Wilson/Will came face to face with the Leviathan. It was annoying that the story ended just as Wilson met Rausch and was recruited by the Cabal, his adventures with them are what we really want to see! But Carey is still holding his cards very close to his chest, it’s painful how many mysteries we need answering. GODDAMMIT! Reveal something! Also, is it just me, or did this issue indicate that Wilson was bi-sexual? I wonder what the significance of that will be? Will the man who confessed to love him play a part in the future of the series?
