Mike Carey and Peter Gross' epic tale about the power of stories continues this Wednesday with The Unwritten #45. Following the events of the last storyline, in which Tom Taylor ventured to the Land of the Dead in search of his lost love Lizzie, the series takes a brief interlude, as we find detective Didge Patterson swept up in a messy homicide involving a strange boy with a wild imagination, a pack of zombies, and a very hungry vampire journalist in Richie Savoy.

DC Comics and Vertigo have provided ComicsAlliance with a preview of The Unwritten #45, featuring art by Peter Gross and Dean Ormston, which you can check out after the cut.
