Check Out A Preview of Jeff Smith’s Return To ‘Bone’ in ‘Bone: Coda’

Bone: Coda


I honestly can’t think of another comic that’s as universally beloved as Jeff Smith‘s Bone. Originally serialized as a 55-issue comic published over the course of 1991 and 2004, it told the story of a trio of cartoon characters ousted from their hometown and into a world of epic fantasy, a blending of genres and themes that made it incredibly compelling — and once the whole thing was released in a massive paperback that collected the entire series, it became the kind of must-read title that’s only seen its fame grow over the course of the past decade.

In July, Smith is returning to Bone for the first time in a while with Bone: Coda, a new book that includes The Bone Companion by Steve Weiner and an all-new 32-page story about Fone Bone, Smiley Bone and Phoney Bone trying to return to their hometown — and now you can read a preview of that tale!

Never before have comics captured the act break of an episode of Dukes of Hazzard quite so well. Those Bone boys are sure in a heap of trouble!

Here’s the official description:

The new story will be 32-pages long in black & white, followed by librarian & comics historian Stephen Weiner’s BONE Companion. The BONE Companion is an independent look at the art & world of BONE. The volume concludes with a thank you letter from Smith to the readers, comic shops, and the comics community. Both sections are heavily illustrated with comics and photos.

The first black & white issue of the self-published comic book BONE appeared on comic shop shelves in July 1991, 25 years ago.

BONE: CODA, 120 page trade paperback published by Cartoon Books, will be sold in comic book shops, bookstores and online in July. You may pre-order from your local comic retailer using Diamond Item Code: MAY161334 F
