Bone: Coda
BONE: CODA 25th Anniversary Special - Jeff Smith,Stephen Weiner

I had no idea what this book was when I placed it on hold. I just saw another hold copy and knew I needed to check it out since I'm reading my way through Bone this month.

 

If you're looking for more information on comic book publishing history and how Bone fits into that then this book is for you. I wasn't really feeling it, so I stopped reading after Jeff Smith's part (the end of Part I). It is interesting how much comics have changed in the last 25 years.

 

I did enjoy the comic at the beginning. If you enjoyed the series and want more of the Bone cousins it's probably worth checking Coda out from your local library to read that story.

 

Also, this is my first DNF of the year (according to my spreadsheet). That's pretty good for me.

Bone Handbook
Bone Handbook - Jeff Smith,Steve Hamaker

I wish the whole book were like extras like the comics and the interviews and the Did You Knows. I could have done without all the summaries. Who are those for? If you've read the comics, you know all the characters and the plot and if you haven't read the comics don't read those summaries because they're not entirely spoiler free (in fact, I think Thorn's is entirely spoilers).

Rose
BONE Prequel: Rose - Jeff Smith

I liked Rose. I think it added some good context to the Bone series. Also the artwork is beautiful.

Bone: Tall Tales
Tall Tales (Bone Prequel) - Jeff Smith,Thomas E. Sniegoski

I enjoyed this spin-off comic a lot. It's funny (probably made me laugh more than all the volumes of Bone combined), and it's nice to see Bartleby and Smiley again.

Bone, vol 9: Crown of Horns
Bone, Vol. 9: Crown of Horns - Jeff Smith

Well, it's over (mostly). I can see why the series has wide appeal. It's a very easy to get into fantasy/hero's journey.

 

I would have liked a few more female characters. And more non-white characters. This series is super, super white. Seriously, the only non-white character I can remember is the girl (Jasmine?) that makes Thorn jealous.

 

I was kind of waffling over the series when I started, and I feel like I'm still waffling now that I'm done. I read the whole thing, but I don't feel like I liked it. There are some good moments, but on the whole fantasy epics aren't really my thing. For the right kid though, this could be a great series.
