A Brand New Bone Comic By Jeff Smith For July 2016

STL008958It has been twenty-five years since I ordered Bone #1 from the still-rather-large Diamond Previews from my local comic shop, Forbidden Planet, in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

I never got it. Apparently three people had to order a comic back then for them to bother ordering it.

It’s a little easier to purchase now, reprinted repeatedly by Cartoon Books, Image Comics, Scholastic and all across the world, in colour and black and white.

And now we get one final story, Bone: Coda, a new comic by Jeff Smith.


The 128 page graphic novel also contains the complete text of The BONE Companion fully illustrated for the first time, written by  comics historian Stephen Weiner, as well as behind the scenes photos & memories, and an afterword by the author thanking the comics community and the readers.

I think just about every comic shop shouldhave this in stock, this time around.
