It’s overflowing with subtext about conflicting philosophies of power, cultural imperialism and political responsibility — though not enough to get in the way of its silly fun.

Every person, animal, and creature adds to the adventure of the Bone cousins as they try to make a new life for themselves and uncover secrets about other characters past which will impact their future.
The book act is vibrant with lots of details to the characters human and other as well as they scenery around them. A friend mentioned that this was her favorite comic. I had not previously heard of Bone, but I have been reading more comics lately and it is hard not to be intruigued by Bone. Three young “bones” from Boneville: In addition to the Bones there are rat creatures, dragons, and lots of interesting creatures It worried me to see that people complained that while the story itself was great and they were glad to have it in one volume, it was a cheaper quality product.
This is why I bought the first book as a test. I bought a used copy to save some money, and as I read I asked myself if I would be as drawn in if it were in black and white or on thin paper. On the story alone, I would say yes.
But I do feel like it wouldn’t have as much impact You know how each word feels, but you strain a little to grasp it. So, I just ordered the rest of the series, some used, some new I just wanted to say that my son absolutely loves reading now thanks to two book series: He loves both, but the Bone series takes him to another world.
Bone, Vol, 1: Out from Boneville
He really loves talking about it, sharing with his friends, and this first book was the first book he sat down and read in two days. He’s 8 years old and didn’t know before now that books can be fun and exciting. Thank you for writing this.
The drawings are both adorable and creepy, too. Perfect for a 3rd grader! I just want to add my “thumbs up” to all the reviews here. If you haven’t read this series, here’s where to start. With similarities to “Cerebus” and “Pogo”, “Bone” has heart and soul all its own.
The lead character, “Fone Bone” exhibits the full range of human emotions. He gets frightened at times, but keeps on going; he gets infatuated, he is loyal, he is ironic The stories are clever page-turners, filled with action, tension and wonderful humor. I can’t imagine this going out of print, but in the comics industry you never know, so I recommend buying “Out from Boneville”.
Bone: Out From Boneville – GameSpot
I betcha can’t read just this one My 9 year old loves the series. Written in a comic form, he devoured these books within a week. I kept having to buy the next one and then we donated them to his teacher’s library so his friends could read. Bones is a creature who lives with his cousins and goes on adventures with his cousins.
He even read them out of sequence then went back and read in order again. As a comics book nerd it’s always been my dream to pass on my the enjoyment to the younger generation and this is just the way to start that. Gifted the first 2 trades to my nephew who has since read the whole series.
One person found this helpful. This is one of the best comic books I have ever read. I’m 35 and have been reading and collecting comics since I was 8 or 9. I’ve seen a lot of great stuff out there but this is tops.
Jeff Smith’s art is so unique, the writing is excellent and the story throughout the entire series is just epic. I recommend this to any parent wanting to start their children off well with great comics. Mine was learning to read and Vol 1 was the first comic she managed to read a little bit of. Jeff Smith’s Bone is a wonderful adventure story that can be enjoyed by all ages.
Many of its characters are cartoonish in both personality and appearance, but they are still easy to root for and care about. This volume manages to tell a compelling story and weave interesting mysteries while still filling the story with great humor bits and introducing several compelling mysteries that will want to make you read the next volume as soon as possible.
This version of Bone has been colorized, and it looks wonderful. While reading it, it is hard to imagine that it was once in simple black and white. Although it is slightly larger than a typical book, it is still small enough to carry around and can easily fit into a purse or a backpack.
I would highly recommend introducing Bone to reluctant readers. Although it is a comic rather than a novel, the writing is top notch, and its story should be able to ignite a love of reading in many children.
One word of warning: Be prepared to shell out for the bobe of the series after getting this one. The reviewer was compensated for posting this review.
