Since 1996, Finder has set the bar for science-fiction storytelling, with a lush, intricate world and compelling characters. Finder: Talisman is the story of a book - the book beloved by misfits and castaways, once glimpsed and forever longed for - and of Marcie, the kid who never gives up her search for magic and meaning. Now, the fan-favorite story is collected in a new, oversized hardcover edition and a limited-edition hardcover signed by creator Carla Speed McNeil!

McNeil’s awesome world, more than 15 years in the making, is notoriously difficult to penetrate. This volume, however, can be an ideal starter course for newbies, or a stand-alone story that doesn’t require knowledge of the dense, complicated machinery of the futuristic/aboriginal world in which it’s set (though, as always, McNeil provides pages of illuminating end notes that comment, page by page and sometimes panel by panel, on the proceedings). This is one of those elemental stories about a story, following Marcie, the youngest daughter of the Grosvenor clan, as she grows up cherishing a certain book even before she can read. After losing it, refinding it, and discovering that it was never what she thought, Marcie digs deep to create the story she’s so desperate to have exist. McNeil’s narrative plays at matters ranging from family tension, digital-print divides, and the terrifying expanse of the blank page for an uncertain artist. Her artwork is both loose and elegant, letting the details, backgrounds, and facial expressions tell much of the story. McNeil’s most accessible story should persuade otherwise hesitant readers to dig deeper. --Ian Chipman
