Staff Reviews

Both classically epic and quietly personal, at once strange and familiar, this book is about a girl who takes a journey to find the beast that changed her life.

— Kay

Set sail with Island Book, Evan Dahm's epic graphic novel about friendship, teamwork, and the wisdom we gain when we face the unknown with bravery and an open heart.

Sola is cursed. (At least, that’s what everyone tells her.) It all started the day the Monster came to the island. While others fled, Sola stood before the creature, alone and unafraid. Since then she’s been treated like an outcast.

Shamed and feared for an event she doesn’t understand, Sola sets out to sea looking for answers. In uncharted waters far from home, she discovers that her island isn’t alone in the endless ocean—and the Monster isn’t the only life to be found there.

Since 2006, Evan Dahm has been creating comics online and in print, including the fantasy-adventure graphic novels Rice Boy, Order of Tales, Vattu, and the Island Book trilogy. He’s also the author of The Harrowing of Hell with Iron Circus Comics.

"Using polished, sure storytelling skills, Dahm offers shipwrecks, battles, and unflagging action." —Publishers Weekly

"Dahm’s impressively compact storytelling often seems to encompass entire conversations, events, and ideas in a few frames and a few words. Absorbing, thoughtful worldbuilding and adventure."
