Can’t wait to see THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY in theaters? Here are four graphic novels about discovering new worlds that you can read in the meantime.

THE BACKSTAGERS

When Jory transfers to the private, all-boys school St. Genesius, he figures joining the stage crew would involve a lot of just fetching props and getting splinters. To his pleasant surprise, he discovers there’s a door backstage that leads to different worlds, and all of the stagehands know about it!

All the world’s a stage…but what happens behind the curtain is pure magic!

MOUSE GUARD

Mice struggle to live safely and prosper amongst harsh conditions and a host of predators. Thus, the Mouse Guard was formed.  More than just soldiers that fight off intruders, they are guides for common mice looking to journey without confrontation from one hidden village to another.

WELCOME TO WANDERLAND

Bellamy Muñoz knows everything there is to know about Wanderland Park. She knows when all the most iconic rides were built, all the shortcuts around the park, and all the secret lore behind Old West Town, Space Age Metropolis and New Princesston. So when she winds up in the REAL version of Wanderland, with real princesses and adorable talking woodland creatures, Bellamy is sure that she has GOT this.

That is, until it starts to become clear that this magical land isn’t much like the real world park at all, and the characters she thinks she knows aren’t at all like she’d imagined.

NEW WORLD

Myth intertwines with history in this fantastical adventure that takes off as the New World collides with the old. The arrival of Europeans on the shores of South America sparks a fateful journey of discovery and daring for a native warrior seeking revenge against those who invaded her land, an African musician fighting for freedom against those who enslaved him, and a Portuguese sailor in search of redemption.
