The Unwritten Vol. 6: Tommy Taylor and the War of Words, by Mike Carey

Second frame of third chapter:
I had been quite a fan of the earlier volumes in this series, but my interest dropped off around 2012, when I bought this but never go around to reading it. Anyway, it' the usual dense narrative, interspersed with parentheses which in general I found more interesting - there's a very disturbing child-abuse one illustrated by Bryan Talbot, there's a great First World War one illustrated by Gary Erskine; but the main plot has our unfortunate hero increasingly involved with the sinister Pullman and the mysterious Leviathan to a point where I found I didn;t care as much as I would have liked to.

This was my top unread comic in English. Next on that list (actually, ahead of it if I'd tallied promptly) is Alice in Sunderland by Bryan Talbot.
