MIKE CAREY will be signing The Unwritten at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Thursday 25th March 6 â€“ 7pm
From the FP website: “When Tom Taylor’s father created the mega-popular Tommy Taylor boy-wizard fantasy novels, he catapulted his son into low-level celebrity. But Wilson Taylor has disappeared and conspiracy theories abound that Tom may not even have been his son. Then a scandal hints that he might really be the boy-wizard made flesh â€“ the characters from the book begin to appear around him and he discovers a mysterious, deadly group has been secretly watching him, and sets off to travel to all the places in world history where fictions have shaped reality.
Mike Careyâ€™s work in has encompassed everything from a biographical comic of Ozzy Osbourne to the astounding and Eisner Award-nominated Lucifer. The list of credits and titles to his name is as sparkling as it is long â€“ and the publication of his Felix Castor series of novels have proved that he can move format without losing his insight, skill or passion. Mike has a first-class degree in English from Oxford and pre-dated his illustrious comics career with 15 years as a teacher.”
This is a tremendous story/ graphic novel. It looks at the creative process and how the words on the page are affected by, and have an effect on, the real world. Thoroughly recommended — Peter
