Huh. It's been so long since I read the first three trades that I really have no idea what the heck is going on. So maybe I don't need to continue with this series. ( )

The third volume in this terrific series, a fantasy/horror meta-story about the power of stories. Tommy Taylor finds himself trapped on board The Pequod, a-hunting the great white whale, or at least trying to find out what it is the whale represents and what it has to do with the power his father wielded and the very bad people trying to kill him and his friends. I love tis stuff, and it's such a relief that it's found an audience large enough to keep it going (unlike say, Crossing Midnight.) I'm very much looking forward to more. ( )

Leviathan is the fourth book (issues 19-24) in The Unwritten series of comics, written by Mike Carey, art by Peter Gross, with additional art by Al Davison and Vince Locke and cover art by Yuko Shimizu.

Wilson’s sudden reappearance didn’t take any heat off of Tom, Rich and Lizzie, quite to the contrary. The Cabal is looking for new ways to destroy them, while Tommy hatches the plan that he has to find the source of his powers. That search leads him into the belly of the beast, quite literally: by way of Moby Dick, he ends up in a whale – but he’s not alone there.

The Unwritten really is an amazing series. So far they not only managed to keep the high quality consistent over all books, but they also manage to come up with a new concept every time – a concept that will perfectly fit the world created, be completely logical and that you would have never thought of yourself. Amazing.

In this storyline, the different threads come together and start to delineate THE STORY behind the stories. Tom is going through a sort of ‘rite of passage’, allowing him to think of his role with a new perspective.

I absolutely love the way that different narrations are used to explain the why and the now: flashback and present day overlap, vignette stories are presented as interlude, and Tom is thrown once again in well-known stories.

All this without taking into account master puppeteer and breach of fiction into reality, or is it the other way around?

Recommended for those of you who have feared boredom and were dissatisfied with part of Vol. 2 and Vol. 3. I’m looking forward the next part. ( )
