Explorer: The Mystery Boxes edited by Kazu Kibuishi
My main issue (with this collection and the Flight anthologies on the whole) is that so many of these stories are very slight or clearly just the beginning of a longer tale, which makes them pretty unsatisfying. But as far as art goes, you can’t beat these anthologies. (Kibuishi’s offering, which closed out the collection, was the real stand-out in both art and story.)
Legends of Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke
Hatke’s artwork is colorful and eye-catching, comparable to Raina Telgemeier. This volume is a little less self-contained than the first, but most readers shouldn’t mind – it means there is more to come.
The Amazing Screw-On Head and Other Curious Objects by Mike Mignola
The Marvelous Land of Oz by L. Frank Baum, adapted by Eric Shanower
