“Explorer features a compilation of seven stories in graphic form, each by a different author/illustrator, yet each featuring a mysterious -- and often magical -- box that serves to tie the stories together. From Johane Matte and Saymone Phanekham's box in an alien universe-building warehouse to Dave Roman and Raina Telemeier's magical box found in the back of an ordinary closet, Explorer holds something for readers of every genre. This is both a gorgeous compilation for the graphic novel enthusiast and a fabulous introduction for the comics novice.”
