Mike Carey continues his "Harry Potter"-esque real world/fantasy tale here in the second volume of The Unwritten. Its soaked with literary elements, themes, and tidbits. So much so, that many probably go over the heads of even the most well read readers. That being said, I enjoyed the trade. At times I was a little confused but so were the main characters, which I like. We're trying to figure out what's going on together. The art fits the title very well. Overall, a solid read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
