CBR Review: The Unwritten #20

I recently reviewed The Unwritten #20 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The Unwritten is often at its best when it’s engaging with literature or literary figures directly. The issue about Rudyard Kipling and the discussion of Frankenstein in the early issues were some of the comic’s more interesting and thoughtful parts. With this story arc focusing on Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, it seemed like after a few stories focusing on the characters and the larger plot, which were enjoyable, that the book was returning to some literary discussion for an arc. Well, the literature geek in me has been a little disappointed so far, but this issue does show some promise towards the end where Tom Taylor enters into Moby-Dick."
