Explorer 2: The Lost Islands by Kazu Kibuishi

Explorer, the exciting graphic anthology series which launched in Spring 2012 with The Mystery Boxes, continues with an incredible roster of comics artists who create amazing new stories around the theme of hidden places in volume two of the series, The Lost Islands. Edited by the New York Times bestselling comics creator, Kazu Kibuishi, this new collection includes well-written, beautifully illustrated stories by Kazu (Amulet), Jason Caffoe (Flight), Raina Telgemeier (Drama and Smile), Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy), Jake Parker (Missile Mouse), Michel Gagne (The Saga of Rex), Katie and Steven Shanahan (Flight), and up-and-coming new artist, Chrystin Garland.
