Blowing horn, cradling hero; children reading hand-projecting book

The Unwritten #7 & #8, by Mike Carey and Peter Gross

This odd title continues. In some respects, this reminds me of Phonogram, in the sense that it takes everyday cultural things and sees a world of magic behind them. In this one, of course, it is the power of books and stories that the creators touch on. I am still a bit vague as to what is actually happening here – is the protagonist some kind of nexus for fictional things to intrude into reality? This question may not matter, and I suspect that the creators will try to delay the big reveal as long as possible.
