Description

The fifth volume in this award-winning graphic novel series contains ten mystery comics by OWL Magazine editor Craig Battle, plus two never-before-published short mystery stories by series creator Liam O’Donnell. As always, storylines are intriguing, age-appropriate, and relevant; illustrations are detailed and compelling; and dialogue is snappy. Each solve-it-yourself comic stars amateur detective Max Finder and his best friend, budding journalist Alison Santos. Seventh graders at Central Meadows Junior High, these two intrepid investigators must call upon their skills to crack each case before them. Cases in this volume include "The Case of the Graffiti Goon," "The Case of the Absent Answer Key," and "The Case of the Cafeteria Crisis." Clues appear in words and images, so readers must develop their eye for detail in order to solve the mysteries. Solutions appear at the end of each comic, explaining whodunit and why, and the clues that cracked the case. Bonus content unique to this volume includes a yearbook-style introduction to Max and Alison’s classmates: bully Ben “Basher” McGintley, gossip queen Leslie Chang, prankster Kyle Kressman, and a host of others. Plus, tips and tricks from Max and Alison for readers looking to develop their own eagle eyes and other sleuthing skills! Crammed with clues and stuffed with enough suspects and red herrings to keep readers guessing until the very last panel, Max Finder Mystery Volume 5 promises to engage pre-teens with hours of whodunit fun.
