Meet with the Bone cousins, Fone Bone, Phoney Bone and Smiley Bone, three misfits that are run out of Boneville and find themselves lost in a huge uncharted desert. They earn their way into a deep, forested valley.
Fone is the everyman hero, Phoney is a cynical con artist, and Smiley is. Having been exiled from their Boneville house, they make their way through a kingdom filled with magic and danger. Part of Bone’s enjoyment is in the mix of styles: the Bone cousins are Walt Kelly-esque cartoon characters, even although is a high-fantasy setting full of realistic people and monsters.
With the support of the Thorn, her tough-as-nails Gran’mthe Great Red Dragon and a Ben, the boys do their best to live in the middle of brewing trouble between the denizens of the valley. It will be the longest — but funniest — year of the lives!
Originally serialized in black & white comic books and graphic novels, the award-winning novel was presented complete and unabridged for the first time in this remarkable 1300 page tome preserving the original black & white artwork.
The new book promises a narrative of the Bone Cousins and their friend Bartleby journeying back to Boneville, a setting that never appeared in the original work. Whether they make it there or not, the journey is guaranteed to be rewarding.
