The Mystery Boxes

Explorer: The Mystery Boxes
by Kazu Kibuishi (Editor)
128 pages

Booktalk: Seven clever stories answer one simple question: what’s in the box?

Funny, fantastic, spooky, and suspenseful, each of these unique and beautifully illustrated short graphic works revolves around a central theme: a mysterious box and the marvels—or mayhem—inside. Artists include middle school favorites Kazu Kibuishi, Raina Telgemeier (Smile), and Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy), as well as Jason Caffoe, Stuart Livingston, Johane Matte, Rad Sechrist (all contributors to the groundbreaking comics anthology series Flight), and upcoming artist Emily Carroll.

Snippet:

CLARA: Don’t follow me, Jack. I have to do this.

JACK: Do what, Clara? And why are you taking your father’s things?

(Clara opens a chest with a sword in it.)

CLARA: I’m going to find the man who killed him.
