Exclusive Comics Excerpt: ‘The Arrival’

Every week, the Comics Page introduces you to brand-new graphic novels by the world’s best artists and writers. Manga, superheroes, indie comix — we’ll cover them all as our editors select the best the exploding comics world has to offer.

A man leaves his home and family behind, journeying to a faraway land in search of a better life. Through gorgeous, fantastical images, Shaun Tan’s The Arrival conveys what it means to be a stranger in a strange land.

Today on the Comics Page, we’re proud to present an excerpt from The Arrival, a beautiful and strange graphic novel by Shaun Tan, out next week from Scholastic.
