Explorer: The Lost Islands edited by Kazu Kibuishi

I have been interested in this graphic novel series for a while now so when I saw this one in the library I thought I’d give it a go.

Explorer: The Lost Islands is a short story collection in graphic novel form, each story written by different artists and illustrators.

I have to say I was extremely disappointed. The stories were too short so overall they all lacked depth and although I enjoyed the artwork in a few of them, this didn’t make up for the lack of content. I feel that this would have been better with less author contributions but longer stories as I just think that 20 pages for a graphic novel isn’t really enough.

Honestly, I couldn’t recommend this collection. I was thinking of giving it 2 stars because I like some of the artwork but I have to say that this was a great disappointment and I feel that the artwork doesn’t make up for the lack of story.

1/5 stars
