Finder: Talisman is a great stand alone entry into an amazing world!

Since 1996, Finder has set the bar for science-fiction storytelling, with a lush, intricate world and compelling characters. Finder: Talisman is the story of a book — the book beloved by misfits and castaways, once glimpsed and forever longed for — and of Marcie, the kid who never gives up her search for magic and meaning. Now, the fan-favorite story is collected in a new, oversized hardcover edition!

My two-bits:
Loved how this story touched on the value of printed books. The doses of magical and whimsical notions are also a treat to see and read in this graphic novel.

This is my first read in this series. I really liked the illustrations and storyline so much so that I plan to going backward to check out the rest.
