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!

What a week! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to sit back and read some comics. The weekend is finally here, and the world can relax and rest once more --- but the comics industry has been busy too, and the last seven days have seen a flurry of comics-based news and announcements fly past at high speed.

ComicsAlliance has got your back, though: when it comes to comics, we never slow down, so here’s a look back and just what’s been going on. New comics, new stories, new hirings, new podcasts, new art being made --- it’s all part of the ComicsAlliance Weekender!

16 Forgotten Image Comics Action Figure Lines

Image Comics
Image Comics

A little over twenty years ago, a group of creators left the confines of Marvel Comics for the wild world of indies. By forming Image Comics, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Erik Larsen, Todd McFarlane, Marc Silvestri and Jim Valentino set a new precedent for comics.

Of course, the 1990s were a dangerous time for the industry. The speculative market imploded not long after the Image exodus, and the comic market still hasn't recovered all these years later. But we're not here to lament the days of old, when single issues sold in the millions and drawing comics was as big a deal as being in Guns 'N Roses (depending on how many pages Wizard devoted to you in a given month). No, we're here to talk about all the ridiculous action figure lines these Image Comics spawned (heh) that you probably forgot all about.
