From Kazu Kibuishi, creator of AMULET, comes an irresistibly charming pair of characters!

Copper is curious, Fred is fearful. And together boy and dog are off on a series of adventures through marvelous worlds, powered by Copper's limitless enthusiasm and imagination.
Each Copper and Fred story in this graphic novel collection is a complete vignette, filled with richly detailed settings and told with a wry sense of humor. These two enormously likable characters build ships and planes to travel to surprising destinations and have a knack for getting into all sorts of odd situations.

A personal favorite are the water scenes in the book --- and there are several: deep-sea diving, waterfalls, tidal waves…they all are marvelously rendered by Kibuishi here.

Comic Book Resources

Rather than try to list just our favorites or grade them on some aesthetic, subjective scale, we thought we’d look at the comics that mattered, the ones that, for better or for worse, changed the industry, changed how people thought about comics, and changed the way comics were read and bought.
