Author:  Mike Carey & Peter Gross
Series: The Unwritten, Volume 6
Publisher: Vertigo Comics
Year: 2012

Goodreads Description:
In this volume, Tom Taylor goes to war against the cabal that has tormented, imprisoned and tried to destroy him. To have a hope of winning, Tom must use every weapon he can get hold of, but even storybook magic carries its own risks. Tom's crusade plays out against the backdrop of the cabal's sinister secret history and delves deep into the dark past of some of the series' major players. When it's all over, very little will remain "Unwritten."

Next to Neil Gaiman's Sandman comics, The Unwritten is my absolute favorite graphic novel series. I love these stories. Mostly, I love how they talk about the power of stories and how stories and words shape what is reality. They just really give me something to think about. Plus, there's lots of really great action and some terrific lines.  I think these are a must read for any literature lover - - especially if you're a pretty well read English  major like me.
