The Unwritten #9

Written by Mike Carey
Art by Peter Gross

This is another very good issue of a very good title. This issue details Tom's escape from the men who have invaded the prison to kill him, and reunites him with Lizzie Hexam and his flying cat. It's becoming increasingly clear that Tom really is Tommy Taylor, although he is just about the only person that doesn't see that.

The comic continues to integrate literary characters, with Roland making another, pivotal, appearance. This importance of fiction and fictional characters gets touched upon in a nice textpiece conversation between Carey and Gross, wherein they discuss the most pivotal books of their childhoods.

This is a pretty intelligent book, and I'm enjoying it a great deal.
