it The beginning Craft Notes for Animators pages hooked me with humor the middle into seriouslot with social commentary then wrapped everything up but was a little too ladden with explanations I thought of the authors vision and Bone mythology I would recommend this to comic and graphic novel lovers serialized fiction lovers anyone who likes to read really It looks intimidating because the book is so hefty but it ll rest nicey on any coffee table or nightstand wihout clashing with the decor of the room until you can read through to the end Bad morningI wasn t sure I d ever review Jeff Smith s Bone After all is there much that can be said that hasn t already been said Bone s so long been Perception and the External World part of the canon of comics literature such as one exists that reviewing it at thisoint is like reviewing Watchmen or The Dark Knight Returns or Maus Or for the non comics literate a bit like if someone Popular Representations of Development penned a review today for Huckleberry Finn I mean what s theoint reallyStill I tell myself there are those who haven t read the book yet There are those who have read comics for years who haven t read Bone and ought to be ashamed of themselves These are aficionados of the medium who need to be cajoled into reading something that will make them better Sister for Sale participants in the medium And there are those still new to the medium who might not be familiar with the canon and might not be aware of Good Places To Start This review isrobably mostly for them And for The Blue Door (Threshold people who migh 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 fryingan 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 shotThe art shares some similarities with Calvin and Hobbes robably 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 BTWAt first I wasn t super impressed with the story Yadda yadda uest yadda yadda dark one vs chose one etc However I uickly got attached to the antics of the Bone cousins and loved Gran ma Ben Both of my grandmas were tough ladies so she uickly became my favorite character Thorn was a strong character not content to buy all the bullshit eople were spewing.

loved it The beginning ages hooked me with humor the middle
Year Of College It Was of college It was of an underground hit that went mainstream and all of the issues some ten years worth or 1300 ages were released in a single volume a couple of years backIt 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 evilIt 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 castI felt that the story broke down a tad near the ending There were a couple of Mostly Mama points where thelotting seemed forced and I have uibbles 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 The Naked Man plot andace over ten years time and had to bring together into one massive story at the endThe restraints of the medium considered he did an excellent job There s a good mixture of humor acing 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 Once upon a time the Marx brothers we.
