Author and illustrator Mark Crilley is back with a new graphic novel, entitled Lost in Taiwan. The story centers on brothers Paul and Theo, who are on a trip in Taiwan. While Theo is quickly enraptured by all the country as to offer, it takes Paul a little more time to warm up to it. The graphic novel is available now online and in stores.
Throughout his career, Crilley has written and illustrated over 40 books, including 14 Eisner Award nominated graphic novels. Some of his past work includes Brody’s Ghost, Mastering Manga, Miki Falls, and several more. Crilley has been featured in publications like USA Today and Entertainment Weekly. He runs a YouTube channel where he shares art tutorials for drawing, paper crafts, and various related informational videos.
The official synopsis for Lost in Taiwan reads:
“THIS WASN’T PAUL’S IDEA.
The last thing he’s interested in is exploring new countries or experiencing anything that might be described as “cultural enrichment.” But like it or not, he’s stuck with his brother, Theo, for two weeks in Taiwan, a place that—while fascinating to Theo—holds no interest to Paul at all.
While on a short trip to a local electronics store, Paul becomes hopelessly lost in Taiwan’s twisting, narrow streets, and he has no choice but to explore this new environment in his quest to find his way back to Theo’s apartment.
In an unfamiliar place with no friends—and no GPS!—there’s no telling what adventures he could happen upon. And who knows? Maybe it turns out he has friends in Taiwan, after all.“
