Description
Follow the tabs to create your own story in this groundbreaking, bestselling graphic novel, now with a revised 10th anniversary cover! Celebrate 10 years of this completely original graphic novel take on a "choose your own adventure." A boy stumbles upon the lab of a mad scientist who asks him to choose between testing a mind-reading device, a time machine, and a doomsday machine. Using an ingenious system of tubes and tabs, readers can decide what to explore in this completely engrossing experiment in storytelling. Sometimes the page reads right to left, sometimes up and down, and sometimes jumps from beginning to end. It's sure to appeal to kids--and comics collectors--eager for an interactive, funny read. Awards and praise for Jason Shiga 2004 Eisner Award 2003 Ignatz Award 2007 Stumpton Trophy Award 1999 Xeric Grant Recipient "Crazy + Genius = Shiga" --Scott McCloud, author of Understanding Comics "If humankind ever finds itself at the brink of its own destruction and I am given the task to fill a small, space-bound time capsule with a collection of ten graphic novels that would present to alien eyes the best that the cartoonists of Earth had to offer the universe, Jason Shiga's Meanwhile would surely be among my picks." --Gene Luen Yang, author of American Born Chinese "A creator of comix that can be at once funny, disturbing, thoughtful, deconstructed, and cleverly put together." -- Time online " Meanwhile is a wallop of a book/graphic novel! It delivers action, choices, problem solving, and engagement. And it reminds me of my own efforts in writing Choose Your Own Adventure, which I take as a great compliment coming from Jason Shiga. I wish I had written this book! Run, don't walk, to your favorite bookseller and pick up a copy!" --R. A. Montgomery, Choose Your Own Adventure author "Ingenious" --Edward Packard, Choose Your Own Adventure author
