Recommended Graphic Novels: Amulet

By Peter

Another graphic novel series I highly recommend is the Amulet series by Kazu Kibuishi. He has published two books in the series: The Stonekeeper and The Stonekeeper’s Curse. It follows the classic storyline of children working to rescue a parent. (Yes, Coiled is one of those stories as well.) Here’s the description from Amazon:

After the tragic death of their father, Emily and Navin move with their mother to the home of her deceased great-grandfather, but the strange house proves to be dangerous. Before long, a sinister creature lures the kids’ mom through a door in the basement. Em and Navin, desperate not to lose her, follow her into an underground world inhabited by demons, robots, and talking animals.

Both the story and the artwork are extraordinary. We can’t wait for the next book in the series to come out.
