choose your own adventure genre— the Vertigo series by Mike Carey. This well-known adventure and supernatural writer took the genre and made it something more sophisticated and adult while maintaining the fun and whimsy that comes with it.
Carey is one author that is not afraid to push the boundaries of what is normal and accepted in both the literary and comic spheres. This comic has the ability to both challenge the reader and make them feel as if they are part of the story. Though a good comic has the ability to draw the reader in no matter what, "The Unwritten #17" is a comic that has the ability to draw in even the most unyielding reader. With the popularity of this comic, fans are asking themselves, "When is the next CYOA comic coming out?"
