Jeff Smith:

with one comment

For those who are not aware of the comic genius that is Jeff Smith and his epic series BONE, for shame!



“The series centers around the Bone Family, white, bald cartoon caricatures with big noses who seldom wear much clothing. In the opening pages the three Bone cousins—avaricious Phoncible P. “Phoney” Bone, goofy cigar-smoking Smiley Bone, and everyman character Fone Bone—are run out of their hometown of Boneville after Phoney decides to run for mayor with disastrous results.”- Wiki –


BONE is a series that is part fantasy/adventure/slapstick humor.  It is written for both children and adults and can be read on a number of levels. Well worth checking out. The entire series is out in one massive anthology or you can purchase the individual trade paperbacks in colour if you like as well. Worth your cash.

The reason I am blogging today is that I just picked up the first volume trade paperback of RASL, his newest comic series. I won’t say more than the following: “RASL, a dimension jumping art thief with a tattoo of a woman’s name (Maya) on his left arm, is wandering in a desert battered and bloody.”

If that has not interested you, I don’t know what will. How about a really kickass image! The series is still ongoing and more trade paperbacks will come but you should hit up your local bookstore and pick up both of these series, worth the dough. Cheers.
