Explorer: The Mystery Boxes


"Explorer: The Mystery Boxes" is the newest comics anthology from Kazu Kibuishi, and the spiritual successor to Flight!  Within are seven stories that each pursue the question "What's in the box?," featuring:

Under the Floorboards by Emily Carroll
Spring Cleaning by Dave Roman & Raina Telgemeier
The Keeper's Treasure by Jason Caffoe
The Butter Thief by Rad Sechrist
Whatzit by Johane Matte
The Escape Option by Kazu Kibuishi
The Soldier's Daughter by Stuart Livingston!

Working on this project was a tremendous opportunity, and perhaps the greatest learning experience I've had as a storyteller.  I'm beside myself knowing my story is being published alongside such talented cartoonists, and can hardly wait for you guys to read it!

  1. Wow, that's a fabulous list of people who've worked on it. Plus just the fact that Kazu is continuing the Flight tradition is exciting in itself. Congrats! And I look forward to getting a copy.

  2. I am psyched to read this, will be picking up a copy soon!
