If you're into epic fantasy story coupled with great acting and beautiful art, Amulet is a series not to be missed. Currently into its 4th installment, the book is about two young kids travelling into a fantasy world trying to save their mum and at the same time, save the world. You can read the prologue of Amulet 1 HERE for free. Despite the fact that this is a children book series, it really is a graphic novel for all ages. The author, Kazu Kibushi, is both the writer and artist of this 10 book epic fantasy. We've been big fans of Kazu's work since 2003 when we first started competing in comic competition.
