‘The Unwritten: Tommy Taylor And The Ship That Sank Twice’ Graphic Novel Coming In September

Fans with shelves fit to bursting with Vertigo collections and original graphic novels may want to make some room. The Unwritten: Tommy Taylor And The Ship That Sank Twice, a standalone Unwritten project by series creators Mike Carey and Peter Gross is coming in September and will feature additional art by Kurt Huggins and Zelda Devon.The Unwritten follows Tom Taylor, the adult son of an author who created a series of incredibly popular Harry Potter-esque books featuring the eponymous Tommy. The lines between reality and fantasy blur, however, when Tom becomes a target of a magical literature-obsessed secret cabal.

Billed as both a prequel and parallel story to the main Unwritten series, The Unwritten: Tommy Taylor And The Ship That Sank Twice will reportedly center around Tommy’s father, Wilson Taylor, and the creation of his Tommy Taylor series, while featuring a parallel narrative of the actual books themselves throughout the story.

From Vertigo’s official solicitation info:

Exploring the Tommy Taylor novels in a visceral and direct way, this hardcover provides a great entry point for new readers and fans of classic literature. We pull back the curtain on how Tommy’s father, Wilson Taylor, devised his subversive literary masterpiece and reveal the blueprint of how a father gives his son vast power in order to accomplish a wider scheme. Partly told through Wilson’s harsh, intoxicating journal entries and juxtaposed with Tommy’s swashbuckling deep sea adventures with his trusty companions Peter and Sue, the story is at once a prequel and a parallel story to the ongoing series.

Following the recently announced cross-over with another well-renowned Vertigo mainstay, Fables coming in May with issue #50, it seems that 2013 is going to be a big year for the literature-themed comic.
