Description:
Seven clever stories answer one simple question: what's in the box?

Artists include middle school favorites Kazu Kibuishi, Raina Telgemeier ("Smile"), and Dave Roman ("Astronaut Academy"), as well as Jason Caffoe, Stuart Livingston, Johane Matte, Rad Sechrist (all contributors to the groundbreaking comics anthology series "Flight"), and upcoming artist Emily Carroll.
