Exlibrium (from the Latin ex libris, "from the books of" and equilibrium, "balance") is a magic stamp which helps the mysterious order of bookwizards to guard the border between the real world and the world of fiction. For many centuries members of the order have been successfully preventing creatures from the works of art and literature from escaping their custody. But sometimes the order fails to do so, and some of the book characters manage to invade the real world…
Lilia Romanova is an ordinary Moscow teenager who is fond of books, movies, videogames and is trying to enter the university after school.
«Lilia’s a charming protagonist – I love her geeky fantasy “escapes”», – Christopher Gates, Everygeek.
But soon her life drastically changes when Lilia meets the book characters who have escaped from books into our world.
«What I love about this comic is that there is a LOT going on. Yes, there is really a story underneath a story here», – Carrie McClain, Black Nerd Problems.
Lilia unveils the secrets of the mysterious bookwizard order whose members have been trying to hold the balance between book worlds and our reality…
«Exlibrium has enough eye-catching material within the comic book for a wide audience», – Brian Barr, Comic Booked.
