are run out of Boneville The primary culprit is the greedy and cunning Phoncible P Phoney Bone He is followed by his loyal cousins Smiley Bone, the village idiot, and Fone Bone, who is one of the main heroes.The cousins get lost and end up in a mysterious valley where they meet a local girl, Thorn, and her cow racing Grandmother From here mysterious events concerning dragons and a sinister entity known as the Locust Lord The entire story, as well as the lore, is well done and is a very entertaining dark fantasy Do not mistake for grimdark Berserk this is not Far better to compare it to the similar Elfquest magnum opus Bone has good humor throughout and the characters are entertaining This is a welcome addition to my collection A children s story with enough depth and creativity to appeal to adults Bone was a joy This review is from 2006 I haven t done a review for a while, so I thought I d do something a little bit different A week or so back, a friend loaned me the complete

thought I d do something a little bit different A week or so back, a friend loaned me the complete BONE graphic novel.This is one I ve been wanting to read for a while Not only have I done very little reading in the graphic novel genre, but I ve heard a lot of very good things about this one I remember a friend reading issues from the then serialized comic back during my freshman year of college It was something of an underground hit that went mainstream, and all of the issues some ten years worth, or 1300 pages were released in a single volume a couple of years back.It s a very interesting read It s something of a cross between an old Loony Tunes cartoon and a serious, epic fantasy novel It s about a group of three Bones from Boneville who get lost and end up in a kingdom far from home, then get caught up in an epic struggle between good and evil.It owes a lot to The Lord of the Rings However, much of the writing is excellent, and there s some fairly decent original worldbuilding This is fascinating for me, because these are things that I don t immediately associate with comic books I know that I m not doing them justice and I m sure there are lots of very excellent ones out there However, I was surprised to read one that felt so much like a traditional epic fantasy, all be it one with three cartoony characters mixed in with the rest of the medieval style fantasy cast.I felt that the story broke down a tad near the ending There were a couple of points where the plotting seemed forced, and I have quibbles with the resolution of a few climaxes However, I find I must give a great amount of credit to the author an independent artist named Jeff Smith He not only did this virtually on his own, but managed to release something serialized that he could never change, had to plot and pace over ten years time, and had to bring together into one massive story at the end.The restraints of the medium considered, he did an excellent job There s a good mixture of humor, pacing, and action even if the character arcs of most of the characters are a tad weak All and all, I can see why this has been named as one of the top ten graphic novels of our time After being run out of Boneville because of one of Phoney Bone s schemes, the Bone cousins wind up in a valley in the mountains It s a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire when war erupts around the valley and the cousins and their new friends are caught in the middleBack in the 1990s, this book was the talk of the town but I was too cool for a comic book about cute characters Now that I m much older and also uncool, I decided to finally give it a shot.The art shares some similar After being run out of Boneville because of one of Phoney Bone s schemes, the Bone cousins wind up in a valley in the mountains It s a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire when war erupts around the valley and the cousins and their new friends are caught in the middleBack in the 1990s, this book was the talk of the town but I was too cool for a comic book about cute characters Now that I m much older and also uncool, I decided to finally give it a shot.The art shares some similarities with Calvin and Hobbes, probably due to the Walt Kelly influence on both It also has a Disney feel I likened it to the Black Cauldron while I was describing the series to my wife Much love for the design of the Rat Creatures, BTW.At first, I wasn t super impressed with the story Yadda yadda quest, yadda yadda dark one vs chose one, etc However, I quickly got attached to the antics of the Bone cousins and loved Gran ma Ben Both of my grandmas were tough ladies so she quickly became my favorite character Thorn was a strong character, not content to buy all the bullshit people were spewing in her direction after being lied to all of her life.The story was epic in scope The Barrelhaven, the valley, and reality itself were at stake before all was said and done I think the mythology of the world did a lot to elevate it above a lot of epic fantasy You know, plus the Bone cousins Bone has pretty much everything you could want in a tale humor, action, unrequited love, poignant moments I really can t think of anything bad to say about it Bone deserves all the awards it has won over the years, an epic tale for all ages Five out of five stars Book 7 for Jugs I need my books to be portable So obviously I took a steak knife and some old Vice magazine covers and DIY d it into three somewhatma Book 7 for Jugs Capes read a cleaner version of this review on CCLaP pre read I ordered this online and it arrived today not in a padded envelope, as is customary, but in a big ass box I should have understood then, but not until I sliced the box open did I realize just how massive this thing is Good grief I read on the subway, for heaven s sake I need my books to be portable So obviously I took a steak knife and some old Vice magazine covers and DIY d it into three somewhatmanageable volumes I haven t had to do that since Infinite Jest post read Here is something that I have never thought about before what is the onomatopoeic rendering of a sword pulled fast out of itswhat is it, scabbard Give up It s SHINGI mean, of course it is, right But who knew That was my first roundaboutly clever way of saying omg omg omg Jeff Smith is a fucking genius.Here is my second, and it involves a visual aid Just prior to the below panel, Bone has been told by several people that winter comes on fast in these parts Then what happens This Yeah Jeff Smith, man Fucking genius.Now I will talk about the book itself As with a handful of amazing books I ve read latelyThe Instructions , for one alsoRaising Demons, if you d given me a plot synopsis before I d started, I probably would not have been particularly inclined to pick this up A trio of strange smooth androgynous bone creatures accidentally become part of an ancient war between the Dragons, the people of the Valley, and the God of the Locusts, and go on a quest to find the Crown of Horns, dodging Rat Creatures and Ghost Circles, aiding and abetted by by a sexy young farmhand and her ornery grandmother Um, no thanks I hate it when regular words get elevated via random capitalization But this, man, holy fuck This is unquestionably and irrepressibly riveting, engaging, fascinating There s an awesomely compelling plot, solid mythology and history, terrific characters, an amazingly vast scope, fantastic art, a pitch perfect balance at all times between pathos humor, action explication, dialogue art, cute animals bloody swordfights Man Wow A couple other things In college I took a course on Lord of the Rings, and one of the things we discussed was how the language of the trilogy subtly reinforces the path of the books from sort of light middle grade fantasy in the beginning to a high art, mature epic by the end I would say a similar thing happens in Bone, where it starts out all kind of silly fun and games, but the book and the plot and the characters all elevate and expand as things proceed, opening and blooming into this vast, mature epic scope.Also, not only does this book pass the Bechdel Test with flying colors , it s basically all women The hero is a woman Her great teacher is a woman Small by cryptic spoiler Even the villain is a woman In addition this I didn t come up with myself thanks Jugs Capes girls there is basically no romantic subplot How often does that happen in fantasy I d say close to never But here, our heroine Thorn is way too busy being brilliant and strong and savvy and kicking ass and saving the fucking world to bother with something so trivial as whom to kiss Yeah Okay okay, enough But jeesh, what a brilliant, spectacular book Who cares that it s too big to carry anywhere Who cares that it s written for kids Who cares that it s epic fantasy It s just fuckin stunning
