Anybody else reading it? I suck at descriptions, so I'll steal one from IGN

What if Harry Potter were based on a real boy? That's the initial premise upon which The Unwritten begins to build. Tom Taylor is a reluctant celebrity, one whose father used him as inspiration for a series of bestselling fantasy novels. But Tom quickly begins to discover the novels may not be entirely fictional.

The Unwritten is an exciting adventure story that has far deeper motives at work. Little by little, the series has begun to explore the nature of fiction and the ways it can take on a life of its own. The Unwritten is an intelligent, witty, and fantastical addition to Vertigo's lineup. We hope this book will last as long as Mike Carey and Peter Gross' previous collaboration, Lucifer. It's every bit as good as that Vertigo classic, if not better.

I read the first two trades. It's pretty cool so far. Does anyone else think it's a bit similar to Harry Potter sometimes? </duh>

An absolutely perfect comic book. The use of multimedia arguments as narrative (a la Dark Knight Returns), the horror elements invading a childish fantasy world, and really well-developed main characters. One of the best things I've read in a very long time!

Mike Carey is basically amazing and I read anything he does.
