Create your own comic book pages with art from AMULET Book One!

Amulet is a fine new all-ages GN by Flight's own Kazu Kibuishi, and you should check out this story, which I find on par with Harry Potter in complexity and excitement...

here's the scoop from the scolastic site:Critically acclaimed comic artist Kazu Kibuishi has created an incredible adventure series set in a magical and dangerous world filled with man-eating demons, a mechanical rabbit, deep family secrets and two courageous kids.

After a family tragedy, Emily, Navin, and their mother move to an old ancestral home to start a new life. On the family's very first night in the mysterious house, a strange noise lures them into the basement where Em and Navin witness their mom's kidnapping by a humongous, tentacled creature who drags her down behind the basement door. The kids give chase down a twisty spiral stairway and find themselves in a world filled with shadowy enemies and unlikely friends.

Kazu Kibuishi is the editor of the popular Flight comics anthologies, as well as the creator of Daisy Kutter, a YALSA Best Book for Young Adults. He lives in Alhambra, California.
