The Unwritten Vol. 8


Formats & editions


In this eighth volume of the critically-acclaimed new series from the Eisner-nominated creative team, Mike Carey and Peter Gross, Tommy ventures into the land of the dead to find and rescue Lizzie. But the journey through Hades pits Tommy against all kinds of enemies of undead. But none of these encounters prepare him for his meeting with the king -- or for the responsibilities he has to take on for some very familiar damned souls.

About the Author

Mike Carey

Mike Carey is a British writer whose work spans comics, novels, film scripts, and TV shows. After writing shorts for British sci-fi comic 2000 AD and a few one-shots for Caliber Comics during the 1990s, he was offered DC/Vertigo’s LUCIFER — henceforth the longest running and most successful Sandman-related spinoff to date. While continuing to work with DC on Vertigo series like CROSSING MIDNIGHT and graphic novels like GOD SAVE THE QUEEN, he took over as lead writer for Marvel’s X-MEN (now X-MEN: LEGACY) in 2006. His work includes DC/Vertigo’s HELLBLAZER, Marvel’s ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR, the FELIX CASTOR novels, THE STEEL SERAGLIO (with Linda and Louise Carey), and DC/Vertigo’s THE UNWRITTEN (with Peter Gross).
