A bullied boy discovers a door guarded by a sly monster . . . A painting of a door opens in a forgotten Egyptian tomb . . . A portal in the park promises to turn you into a much cooler version 2.0—if you can just get the bugs out . . . Edited by New York Times bestselling comics creator Kazu Kibuishi, who is also a contributor, the third volume in this highly praised series gathers some of the foremost and fastest-rising talents in comics for kids: Jen Wang (Koko Be Good), Johane Matte (Explorer: The Mystery Boxes), Steve Hamaker (colorist of Jeff Smith’s Bone series), Faith Erin Hicks (Friends with Boys), DougHolgate (Zack Proton series), and Jason Caffoe (Explorer: The Lost Islands and Flight). Readers maynever walk into a room the same way again.
Kazu Kibuishi is the author of Amulet, the award-winning New York Times bestselling graphic novel series; the illustrator of the new paperback covers for J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series; and the editor of eight volumes of Flight, the Eisner-nominated anthology series. He lives in Bellevue, Washington.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique stories and styles I found this because I love the work of Faith Erin Hicks. Now I have discovered all these other author-illustrators that I can't wait to check out. Also, I love how these stories have a theme that ties them all together. And of course, all of the artwork is great, ranging from simple to complex, from fun to beautiful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! This is my first "Explorer" and I'll have to go back and read the first two as I fair enjoyed this. Now I'd only read a couple of the author/illustrators before but both Kibuishi and Canadian Faith Erin Hicks are favourites of mine. Anthologies are best when they have a solid theme and this one's "Hidden Doors" is an intriguing one. Each story does have a physical door in it, but the differences end there. Each story took the theme in a unique direction; Kazu Kibuishi's offering was my favourite by far though.
