Mike Carey and Peter Gross’ series The Unwritten, one of Vertigo’s longest running books, will be going on a two month break after November, to be relaunched in 2014 with a new issue #1.
Following November’s issue – which will be issue #54 – the book will end the current run and then relaunch in January, Newsarama reports. This is so the creative team can recharge after working on the graphic novel ‘Tommy Taylor and the Boat that Sank Twice’ and a Fables/Unwritten crossover concurrently. Carey states that this is also a natural break-off point for the series, before the new run starts next year:
It felt like we reached a natural turning point in the story, particularly since the ‘Fables’ arc was, itself, such a big change of pace and tone. So there’s a kind of natural rhythm to it so the break won’t seem like a stop; it will feel like a breather.
And it will be very short. It’s only a few months.
