CBR Review: The Unwritten #14

I recently reviewed The Unwritten #14 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The countdown to the release of the new Tommy Taylor book has reached 24 hours and with the buzz at its height in public, things are nothing but tension behind the scenes. The issue begins with a funny scene of a critic reading the book, not really written by Wilson Taylor, and reacting with anger and despair at the horrid writing. He rhymes off clichés before noting that trashing it in writing could lead to problems and he isn’t going to praise it -— so what’s he to do? Why, toss the book in the garbage! If things are bad for critics, they’re worse for Tom Taylor and his small group as Lizzie goes solo and Savoy has been bitten by and enslaved by Count Ambrosio, the enemy of Tommy Taylor made real. With the organization opposing Wilson Taylor lurking about, things are especially tense."
