BONE by Jeff Smith
The single volume edition of Jeff Smith’s cartoon masterpiece is 1,332 pages long. Bone centers around the Bone family (big nosed, marshmallow looking guys) who have been driven from their hometown and wind up relocating to the mysterious town of Barrelhaven where they are suddenly swept up in an apocalyptic battle against the Lord of the Locusts.
Somehow Smith manages to take characters and comedy that seem pulled from Walt Kelly’s Pogo and release them both into a fantasy adventure as broad and expansive as The Lord Of The Rings.
will you be offended? You’d probably be the first. It’s very adult oriented but kid friendly.
