All Stories Have Endings: Mike Carey and Peter Gross Close Out ‘The Unwritten’ [Interview]

CA_UnwrittenHeader

In the closing days of January, Vertigo released The Unwritten: Apocalypse #12, the final installment in Mike Carey and Peter Gross' fan-favorite meta-fictional fantasy saga. The series told the story of Tom Taylor, a man trying to live down the fact that his father used his name and likeness for the Harry Potter-esque hero of his best-selling fantasy novels. As the series begins, Tom is quickly pulled into a world where the lines between fiction and reality are not so clearly drawn.

To mark the conclusion of Carey and Gross's long-running narrative, we talked to both creators to learn about the entire history of the series from initial conception to final curtain.

Tom Taylor Takes His Final Bows In ‘The Unwritten: Apocalypse’ #12 [Preview]

unwritten-hed

When Mike Carey and Peter Gross launched The Unwritten in 2009, it seemed like a concept tailor-made for a Vertigo series. It's the story of Tom Taylor, whose name and likeness were used by his father as the foundation for a wildly popular series of Harry Potter-esque fantasy novels, who grows up to find himself embroiled in increasingly bizarre situations, fighting for his life against supposedly-fictional adversaries.

Now, seventy-odd issues, an original graphic novel, and a widely acclaimed crossover with Bill Willingham's Fables later, Carey and Gross are bringing their tale to a close with tomorrow's release of The Unwritten: Apocalypse #12, a special oversized finale that sees Tom come face-to-face with his father, and battling for the fate of the world. Vertigo have provided us with an exclusive seven-page preview, so read on for your first look at the final act...

‘Hellblazer’ #300 Marks The End Of An Era For Constantine And Vertigo

hellblazer-lede

With the 300th and final issue of Vertigo's Hellblazer, out this week, several tumblers shift and lock into place. John Constantine moves to the New 52 on a full-time basis, with a new title beginning in March; the reset button is pushed on his continuity, and the most writer-driven character of the last thirty years is yanked from the comfort and promise of a Mature Readers label and forced to grow up again in a PG-13 world; and the longest-running title in the Vertigo line concludes a twenty year run, as the imprint focuses exclusively on creator-owned comics. It's a sad time for misfits everywhere, as Hellblazer is o
