The colors pop and the artwork sings throughout the seven stories featured in EXPLORER: THE LOST ISLANDS, the second anthology from editor Kazu Kibuishi (the creator behind the wonderful Amulet series). Kibuishi’s AMULET is known for these eye-grabbing splashes, which take full advantage of the spectrum of four-color creativity that comics allows, so it’s no surprise to see them on display here as well.
