Kazu Kibushi is one of the hardest-working men in comics, from helming the award-winning Flight and Flight Explorer anthologies to his own characters such as Copper and Daisy Kutter – and that’s just for starters. Last year, the first graphic novel in his Scholastic all-ages fantasy series was a smash hit that garnered an Eisner nomination and was optioned as a film by Will Smith as a possible vehicle for his children, Jaden and Willow.
Now, Book Two of Amulet, The Stonekeeper’s Curse, hits stores in a few months, and it’s even bigger and better than its predecessor. In it, our young heroes Emily and Navin undertake a dangerous quest in a fantasy realm to save their mother…a quest that involves ancient trees, a deadly assassin, a brave fox, mystic giants, and oh yeah, a robot house.
Kibuishi took some time out from his very busy schedule to give us a look at Amulet 2, complete with some preview art that will have you chomping at the bit for the full book.
