Jeff Smith's Bone is an amazing series that deserves to be widely read. It tells the story of Fone Bone, Phoney Bone, Smiley Bone, Thorn, Gran'ma Ben and the Red Dragon as the valley they inhabit is threatened by the stupid Rat Creatures and the Hooded One.
Smith's black and white artwork is simply breathtaking in its ability to express emotion and detail. The humour is sharp, and the story engaging. As you can guess I can't stop raving about how good it is.
Told in the style of a fairy tale, Bone has something for everyone who reads it. Romance, action, adventure, comedy and nefarious plots to decide the fate of the world. Smith spent thirteen years telling this story, so epic doesn't begin to describe it.
Find a copy and read it, or else the stupid Rat Creatures may come for you.
