Explorer: The Mystery Boxes - Kazu Kibuishi
Kibuishi (creator of AMULET) is the editor of this graphic novel short story collection. Each story is very different, both in artistic style and subject matter. The common thread that connects each of these stories is a box – not the same box, but a box of some kind. There are 7 stories included in this collection. My favorite is Whatzit by Johane Matte and Saymone Phanekham. I loved the art style of this one. Also, even though it was short, I felt the story was complete without being rushed and choppy.Look at this picture. What’s not to love about little Deet, the main character of the story?Truthfully, I don’t like short story collections. Notice the 3 Glasses rating. So, if you really need something quick to read and this is handy, go ahead and give it a try. But, I wouldn’t go out of my way to get this one.
