To his pleasant surprise, he discovers there's a door backstage that leads to different worlds, and all of the stagehands know about it! All the world's a stage...but what happens behind the curtain is pure magic!

One of the funniest and most original things I've read in a while - the Backstagers graphic novels are wonderful! Great characters, nice levels of complexity, great friendships, and budding romances. So much to love!

This is amazing and I need all of these now. It's like a Lumberjanes but with boys and theatre. I am so happy I have discovered it.
