Amulet is the brainchild of Kazu Kibuishi, editor of Flight and author of the webcomic Copper and graphic novel Daisy Kutter. It's a graphic novel (4 volumes so far) chronicling the adventures of Emily, her brother Navin, and her mother, as they find themselves caught up in an alternate, subterraneous world called Alledia. The eponymous amulet is found by Emily in a new house they move into.

Alledia is home to all sorts of wild and imaginative things, like tentacled monsters, walking houses, talking trees, and Emily finds herself trying to not only keep her family together, but also fight an increasingly brutal war against an evil race of elves bent on dominating everyone else.

Tropes used in Amulet include:
