Kazu Kibuishi's follow-up anthology to the award-winning Flight series, Explorer continues in much the same vein except now each volume features a loose conglomeration of stories under a common theme. The first book centered around mysterious boxes and offered much the same quality of the previous series. While still relying on his regular cadre of talented contributors, the second and newest collection, Explorer: The Lost Islands fails to measure up to the standard of its predecessors. Even though every story is beautiful rendered, the often lackluster writing fails in execution and often feels forced into the theme. Of the seven stories, only three memorable tales emerge: the clever "Desert Island Playlist" by [a:Dave Roman|266715|Dave Roman|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1200331121p2/266715.jpg] and [a:Raina Telgemeier|21618|Raina Telgemeier|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1200153437p2/21618.jpg]; the gorgeous and poetic "Loah" by Michael Gagné; and the humorous "Radio Adrift" by the brother and sister team of Katie and Steven Shanahan.

As good as the first. Really thoughtful, well-drawn stories. ( )

Explorer 2: The Lost Islands edited by Kazu Kibuishi is the second of the Explorer compilations of short comics. Each of these collections is based on a central theme, and this one is islands.

This collection has works by Kazu Kibuishi, Jason Caffoe, Raina Telgemeier and Dave Roman, Jake Parker, Michel Gagné, Kate and Steven Shanahan, and Chrystin Garland.

My favorite of the set is the collaboration between Raina Telgemeier and Dave Roman in which a girl is stranded on an island. She meets two other people, a young woman and and old woman. They share a bond through a song they all know. Are they all aspects of the same person, or just very similar? ( )

This book was an interesting graphic novel. It has been awhile since I have read from this genre. I thoroughly enjoyed a few of the stories and I was intrigued by many of them. The illustrations were beautiful and the stories were quite good. Because of the exploration theme I could see using this with a freshman English class first semester. They focus on adventures and exploring in short stories. It would be easy for a teacher or librarian to show the novel via Elmo and read all together. Students could write about connections and differences in the short stories and the graphic short stories.

When I started reading graphic novels, one of the the first series I fell in love with was the Flight anthology, edited by Kazu Kibuishi. Why you ask? In large part because it introduced me to other artists, such as Erika Moen and Hope Larson, whose books and stories I could fall in love with and expand my horizons. Not only that, they created stories that were built around a central theme, in this case flight, but the artist(s) could choose to define flight in any way they wanted. It was, for me, a fantastic concept and while I was sad when the Flight series ended, I was ecstatic to find out that they were continuing the concept with the Explorer series. Even better the Explorer series is geared towards younger readers While I have read works by many of the artists in this series, it is still a chance to reconnect with old friends or discover new ones.

The idea behind the Explorer series is that there is an overarching theme of exploration of different ideas and worlds, in the case of the theme of the volume is lost islands. Each artists(s) defines lost islands in whatever fashion they choose, whether it be physical or mental or something else entirely. And that’s the beauty of this series. We become explorers of not just a place, but explorers of reality that challenge us to rethink the ideas that the artist(s) presents to us. Do we agree with them? And if we do...would we want to visit that place? What would we learn from it? Questions that are not so easy to ask or answer, but ones that will leave us thinking about the stories long after we turn the pages and close the book.

In this book there are seven different stories for us to “explore” as we get our feet wet during the journey of islands and the stories are presented by a variety of master storytellers. The first thing that you notice upon opening this book, are the vibrant and dream like colors that pop off the page and draw us in and makes us want to know more. While I can’t describe every story in depth, I’ve given a brief description of each below.

The first story that we read is Jake Parker’s Rabbit Island, which introduces us to an island of bunnies that work hard together to make it in life. But, what happens when one bunny wants to make life easier for his fellow rabbits and creates a robot that can help with chores?

Next up is Chrystin Garland’s The Mask Dance, an eerie tale of a strange island that is alive with music and carnival, but has a sinister purpose. Chrystin’s tale is vibrantly colored, with characters that leap off the page, and try to drag you back into their world...where dark things await.

Then we come Jason Caffoee’s Carapace, a story of a boy seemingly trapped on an inhospitable island, with strange creatures waiting at every turn. But the ghost of a giant crab may help turn things around. And maybe...just maybe, both of them will get something out of it.

One of my favorite tales in this book, is Desert Island Playlist by husband and wife duo Dave Roman and Raina Telgemeier. A seemingly simple tale of three women--a baby, a teenager, and an old woman--stranded on an island with some items to keep them entertained. While they seem so different at first, they discover that they are connected to each other and the world around them in some unique ways.

Michel Gagne’s Loah is a simple tale of survival and friendship, but gorgeously illustrated with lush colors and a wonder to the design of the creatures that we see.

My absolute favorite story in this collection though, is Radio Adrift, by Katie Shanahan and Steven Shanahan. This story is about a young mage in training, who needs to hatch a pixie egg, that can only be hatched by a certain sound. But when she discovers that the sound is a radio station about to drift away, she finds a story far greater than her own. Katie and Steven create a story that centers not on the young mage...but on the radio itself and the tales that have created the world. I could see this being an absolutely fantastic standalone story, one that would keep readers entertained for days.

The last story in the collection is Kazu Kibuishi’s tale, The Fishermen, that tales that story of a captain looking for a giant fish, his crew, and the island they find that may sink them all. Illustrated in Kazu’s typical style, the reader won’t be able to put the book down until they know whether survival is at hand.

These seven tales have lessons to teach us all, but through a fun and adventurous story that will keep you turning the pages until the very end of the tale. All of the stories are well told, with gorgeous and lush artwork full of a creative vibrancy that can often be lacking in books for young readers. This series is perfect for ages ten and up (due to vocabulary used) and I would highly recommend checking out the next volume in the series as well. ( )
