The Unwritten #29

The covers of this comic are always nice, but during this latest arc, 'On To Genesis', they have been particularly good.  Last month, cover artist Yuko Shimizu gave us an homage to the Golden Age, and this month designs a wonderful pulp cover that matches what's going on in the story while perfectly evoking the era in which it takes place.

This whole arc has been running very smoothly, as Tom continues to track his father's involvement in the Cabal, and the slowed growth of comics as an art form almost immediately upon the creation of the superhero genre.  It's been clear from the start of the series that Wilson Taylor was never a very good person, and it's interesting to see what choices and events led him to becoming the man he is.

There's a great surprise at the end of the issue, which has me looking forward to next month's chapter.
