Graphix – Bone #5-9 | Smith & Hamaker | 2010

When it rains, it pours” says an often used English idiom. While that isn’t the literal case with the season we are being subjected to in the Indian cities, it’s aptly applies to Jeff Smith’s Bone series publications in India.

Yes, the long awaited Bone’s final set have come to the Indian stores, and I for one is happy as ever to read the conclusion to these anthropomorphic Bone cousins’ saga, in full blown colour.

The first set, consisting of Bone #1 to #4, was released by Scholastic’s Indian arm, under their imprint Graphix, back in 2008. At the time of their Indian release, Bone #9, the last collection of this Scholastic series, was undergoing their new colouring effort, and we were wondering here at Comicology, that the remaining titles would be released along with the #9, once that is made available to the US stores.

Colored Bone #9, eventually hit the stores in US on Jan 2009, and my hope of seeing the sets in India soon, were doubled. But, as it turned out it took more than a year for Scholastic to bring their last instalment of Bone sets to India.

Bone Saga's Main Characters

Reasons are unknown of the delay, which could be debated from the slow sales of these items off the store racks, or the relative popularity these Bone Cousins enjoy among Indian comic fans. But, it was sure that some concerns were related to the Indian prints, which has made Scholastic to adopt a safer Hooded One, Kingdok and Rat Creaturesmethod this time around, by procuring the second set directly from their Singapore editions.

The package, size and format remains the same, with the quality of the papers being the only difference. While the Indian Prints (#1 to #4) were thinner, the new set have more thicker quality papers, but still they are both comparable in terms of  the glossy paper quality. And to maintain the standards, they are being priced at the same range of INR 350 each.

We had discussed the steep price during our last post, but I still  believe that the world renowned characters, who are now available to us in brand new colored avatars, deserve that price tag.

So, without further adieu, let’s move on to our preview of these 5 titles of Bone.

Scholastic Graphix: Bone #5
Rock Jaw – Master of the Eastern Border Bone (Scholastic) #5ISBN: 978-0-439-70636-0
2010 | 116 Pgs | INR 350 | C5 | Color | Paperback

Bone #5, titled Rock Jaw, carries the Bone Cousins to the Eastern borders in their quest to take the Rat creature, named now as Bartleby (a character, which recently made it to the MTV list), and chronicles their encounters with the Big mountain lion, Roque Jaw (Chapter 1), often mistakenly pronounced as Rock Jaw, much to his irritation.

Book 5 Inner PageIn total Bone #5 comprises of 5 exact chapters where they get new allies in form of The Orphans (Chapter 2), and also discover the Rat Creature Temple (Chapter 3) along with the unlikely duo of Stupid Stupid Rat Creatures.

Further down they fall victim to the mysterious Ghost Circles (Chapter 4) with a special face-to-face encounter with Kingdok and his hoard, as the volume comes to the close with a final answer to the Call of the Wild (Chapter 5) for their little Bartleby.

The encounters with the Stupid Stupid Rat Creatures and the monstrous Rock Jaw are a out and out laughter package, which is sure to tickle your funny bone.

Inside the gates of Atheia, a secret meeting of the old loyalists Bone and the Valleytake place, with Thorn finally being briefed about her queen mother, nicknamed Moonwort (Chapter 5).

2010 | 214 Pgs | INR 350 | C5 | Color | Paperback

Book #9, the final volume of this Bone saga titled Crown of Horns, starts off with the recollection of the Thorn’s childhood in The Dungeon and The Parapet (Chapter 1), which is the second biggest chapter of the entire Bone series.

The full blown chapter details the bloody war between the Rat Book 9 Inner Pagecreatures and their allies, and the rejuvenated but outnumbered forces of Atheia, making their final stand on behalf of the human kind.

An Insert of Mim (Chapter 2), the first Dragon queen, is briefed in a short chapter, before Thorn reveals that the Ghost Circles which surrounds the city into an unbreakable magic cover has some Gaps (Chapter 3), using which they believe that they can bring some much needed help from their allies at Old Man’s Cave, who unknowing to them are facing a handful of problems on their own.

Escape from the City (Chapter 4), then details Thorn and company’s escapade using these Gaps, as they desperately try to get some sort of helping hands in their battle against the evil. But unknowingly Bone 41 (Original Cover)to Grandma, Thorn maps her own path to Chamber of Horns (Chapter 5), to put an end to the menace in toto.

Bone 45 (Original Cover)What happens is then the final battle of good vs evil, in another lengthy chapter (Chapter 5) of the volume 9 (which even outnumbers Chapter 1 of the same book in terms of numbers), with the readers having to witness the familiar climax of many a fairytales unfold before their very eyes.

Homecoming (Chapter 6), is a dedicated to Lucius, the martyr of the blood war, where he is sent on his final voyage back to his hometown for a royal burial. Joining them on their entourage are Bone cousins, who embark on their own mission back to Boneville, with Thorn & Grandma joining to see them off.

River Crossing (Chapter 8), finishes of the Bone saga, with the Bones reaching their mark for a farewell, with Thorn and Grandma giving them the send-off. Unknowing to them, Phoney Bone has managed to scalp the treasure of Atheia, as he tries to smuggle them out as the culmination of his long standing mission.

"Despite the cover of the last issue of the original run, portrays Red Dragon asking us to keep mum; the ending of this Bone saga would be debated for long and hard, by those who followed the series through the 90’s and beyond the millennium”

Does he get the support of his allies Smiley and the do-gooder Fone, or do they become his nemesis, is unravelled in the final pages as the readers give a farewell to the Bone Saga, which redefined the thin line between Comics and Graphic Novels for over a decade.

Bone 55 (Original Cover)But, did the ending really satisfy the Bone readers to the fullest? I have my own reservations, and despite Jeff Smith claiming that he had the ending planned even before he started drawing his first album, I still don’t think that end was as he had envisioned originally, at least to the true essence of it. It was abrupt, and doesn’t bode well for the legacy set by the early adventures of Bone.

Nevertheless, despite the cover of the Original #55 issue of Bone, portrays a Red Drag asking us to keep mum, the ending of this Bone saga would be debated for long and hard as long, by those who followed the series for the whole of 90’s and beyond the millennium.

Jeff SmithCREATORS CORNER: Jeff Smith

We have spoken a whole lot about Jeff Smith in our two earlier blog posts about One of Jeff Smith's earlier Daily StripsBone, here and here, but he never seizes to amaze me, each time I read more about his path to glory.

From a $7 per day strip maker, to a man who owns a fledgling comics business entity, his story is an inspiration for all those aspiring comic fans, who like to make their own cut.

Jeff Smith, Vijaya Iyer, and their Bone empireJeff now devotes his time between guest talks in comics forums around the world, and writing and drawing his new adventure series, RASL. But, Bone continues to be his hallmark achievement, and now is a study material in many of the schools in his country.

Recently, he won in his favour a Minnesota review committee ruling, which was in response to a petition filed by a kid’s mom, to ban Bone based story telling from school syllabus. The reasons given - the Bone volumes portrayed violence, gambling, and drinking in its earlier episodes.

Anyone who had read Bone series would stand against those allegations, so there was no wonder the judgement turned in the favour of Smith and company.

Steve HamakerCREATORS CORNER: Steve Hamaker

Even though this collection of Bone series is not new, as it was only a re-issue version of the 9 Steve Hamaker breathes colors into Bonevolume Bone collection released by Jeff Smith’s own Cartoon Books, which in-turn collected the 55 edition single issues; where it standsout is in the breathtaking color rendition by the incredibly talented Steve Hamaker, who breathed his life and soul into turning a classic into a modern day Graphic Novel standard.

Bone had achieved a cult state, even before Hamaker came into the picture. But, he made the turnaround, which resulted in Bone now being introduced into schools in United States, as a medium of teaching. Steve Hamaker was recently nominated for Eisner Awards, for his works on Bone’s latest volumes, which incidentally was his 4th for this esteemed recognition in comics industry.

As a tribute to his work, I could only do my part by dedicating the creativity rights of Bone, by naming him along with Jeff in the title of this Bone post. You deserved it fella !


And that completes our Bone run at Comicology, and if you haven’t read it, now is a chance to read them all in one go. So, head to your nearest book store, or sit and order it from your online store.

Nevertheless, Enjoy the reading, Adios Amigos !

News - Bone | Bangalore Mirror | Nov '08

Bone Media Coverage
Image Courtesy: Scanned by Pathy
Forwarded by Viswa

We ran a full post review on the Bone Series on Comicology, when it debuted in India.  Well, we now have a Media article about the series and the creator Jeff Smith,  who was on a comic book promotion tour in India, last month.

Bangalore Mirror newspaper carried a personal account of Jeff Smith on his work on Bone, which has made him a top-shot in the Graphic Novel Biz.  The article also talks about the new venture of Jeff Smith, about which you can find in our earlier post.  Read the Article, where Jeff talks about his child hood passion and how he formed the idea of Bone.

For those who wonder, why Jeff Smith loves India so much, it's got to do with his wife Vijaya Smith (formerly Vijaya Iyer), whose ancestors are from Kerala, another Southern State of India.  Through which he has close knitted family connections in India, including Mumbai.  Jeff claims the Indian connection was instrumental in the concluding plot works on the final two chapters of Bone series.  I would love to see those final chapters reprinted by Scholastic in India.

Jeff never forgets to thank Vijaya, who is also his business partner, and takes care much of the production and administration work; like attending comic-con events, invoicing, publishing contacts; right from their self-publishing company Cartoon Books (which originally serialized Bone as 55 issues, consisting one chapter each).  This has let Smith concentrate solely on his comic work, which has what made him world-famous now.

Doesn't it feel good to have a life partner who share your hobbies, and interests? Heah, I can hear some "Grins" from the wed-locked Comicologists here :).

Here is an excerpt from Jeff's another Interview while in India on his promotion tour:


You started off drawing Bone when you were five years old. How did it evolve to its present state? 
I was very young when I used to go to my grandmother’s house and watch movies and read. She used to give me this big sheet of paper on which I used to draw. The very first comic though was published in 1991. Each chapter was released as one comic book. It was black and white initially. Now the entire series is a beautiful 1,300 page continuous novel that I have released independently. I always had the start and end in mind, but when I started writing I went off on different tangents and just wrote the funniest things that came to my head.

Bone_JeffHow tough has the journey been?
The medium is very difficult as the readers are very picky. When I started off, I had the strangest idea that the comic should be like Bugs Bunny-meets-Lord of the Rings. It didn’t sell well initially, we literally had to carry boxes to big comic conventions like those in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York. My wife and me were unaware that the comic was being picked up by libraries around the country and kids were reading it. Scholastic called us, and that’s when we realised that the comic appeals to children. 

How did you decide to take the “self-publishing” route initially?
I had no choice but to self-publish. I was turned down by every newspaper syndicate in the US. I realised if I wanted to draw Bone, I would have to publish it myself out of my garage. Now, of course, it’s published around the world by many big mainstream publishers in different countries. But I still own the comics themselves, the copyrights belong to me even though the Bone cousins can speak many languages that I cannot!

Bone Statue by Dark Horse Will graphic novels find their way into history as great literature?
The art is very new. Since its inception, graphic novels have always been found only in collector’s stores in the States, it’s only three years ago that they have found their way into bookstores. Now there are talented 25-year-olds who are exploring the art form. The future is bright, I think.

Is there an Indian connect in your series?
My wife, Vijaya, has always been there for me. I can always bounce ideas off her. The Indian connect comes in the last couple of books, where they have been modelled in India and Nepal. As for reading Indian authors, I just got a stack of them. I haven’t read much so I wouldn’t be able to comment.

Pity that Jeff Smith's arrival wasn't covered in any Chennai based papers (even though on a personal Bone Collection by a fan visit, and not part of his book tour), as he has spent quite a lot of time visiting the ancient Shore temples at Mahabalipuram, a tourist attraction in South India, located at Chennai.  Doesn't talk well about the Comics passion actually existing in the city.  You can read more about Jeff's India trip at his Official Website, here and here.  He looks a free-to-move persona with his Pani-Puri act. 

I am impressed with Jeff's creative work, since I read the Bone series for the first time.  Hopefully, we will be seeing his next venture, RASL, also getting published in India sooner.

Graphix - Bone #1-4 | Smith & Hamaker | 2008

Isn't it a long time since we covered a Comics from USA at Comicology? While there was a continuous flow of Euro/Franco-Belgian Comics in India from various publishers, US based comics were a no-show, largely due to the copyrights held by Gotham Group for DC & Marvel in India, which went into hibernation (for the 3rd time since their launch) last year.  Supermans, Batmans, and Spidermans Fone Bonewere reduced to be seen only on Torrent sites as CBRs, or the occasional remainder stock from US found at few book shops.

Well, we finally have the answer to that in the form of Scholastic.  Scholastic-India, a subsidiary of Scholastic Inc, have jumped on to introduce a different US comics genre to Indian Comic/Graphic Novel fans.  And what better way to start their venture, by bringing in the much acclaimed, and credited Bone Series.

Scholastic Graphix: Bone #1
Out from Boneville
Bone 01 c1 ISBN: 978-81-7655-993-5
2008 | 144 Pgs | INR 350 | C5 | Color | Paperback

Bone was released as an underground comics book series in United States of America, originally serialized in 55 irregularly released issues from 1991 to 2004.  Bone was drawn and written by Jeff Smith, who is widely known to the Comic book enthusiasts for his work on DC & Marvel Superhero titles, in the later part of his career. 

Bone 01 BackcoverIt was originally drawn as Black & White, and Smith has admitted that his artwork was inspired by animated cartoons and comic strips.  Cover arts for all those 55 issues could be seen here or here, a testimony the talent of Jeff Smith.

Bone volume 1, comprises of six chapters:
    1. The Map,
    2. Thorn,
    3. Phoney Bone,
    4. Kingdok, 
    5. Barrelhaven,
    6. Phoney's Inferno

The Bone Series has garnered Eisner Awards (10 times) among the various categories it was nominated for, including Best Writer/Artist for Jeff Smith multiple times.

Scholastic Graphix: Bone #2
The Great Cow RaceBone 02 c1 ISBN: 978-81-7655-994-2
2008 | 144 Pgs | INR 350 | C5 | Color | Paperback

As briefed in Wikipedia: “The series centres around the Bone Cousins (Fone Bone, Phoney Bone, and Smiley Bone), which is composed of Bone 02 c2creatures which talk and act like the humans in the story; but who are white, small, bald humanoids with big noses, who seldom wear much clothing.  Although the three Bone cousins are from Boneville, and it is frequently referred to as the place where they wish to return, the village itself is never shown or depicted in the story.”

Bone volume 2, comprises of six chapters:

    1. The Spring Fair,

    2. The Cave,

    3. The Mystery Cow,

    4. The Great Cow Race,

    5. Lonesome Road & Possum Interlude, and

    6. Up on the Roof

Also, it appears that Boneville is fairly modern, as opposed to the Valley, which, judging by the weapons used and methods of transportation, is little above medieval.

Scholastic Graphix: Bone #3
Eyes of the StormBone 03 c1 ISBN: 978-81-7655-995-9 
2008 | 192 Pgs | INR 350 | C5 | Color | Paperback

For example, Smiley Bone makes two comments, one to Phoney Bone about a failed scheme of his involving a nuclear reactor, and one to Fone Bone while trying to convince him to return to Boneville, referring to CornDogHutTM, all of which are twentieth century achievements.

Bone 03 c2Overall, It's a Lord of the Rings style series, with a humour in-between, yet maintaining the seriousness of the plot all along.

Bone volume 3, comprises of eight chapters:

   1. Watch Duty,
   2. Moby Bone,
   3. Road Trip,
  4. Double or Nothing, 
  5. Eyes of the Storm, 
  6. Mending Fences,
  7. Dreams,
  8. Things that Go Bump in the Night

Starting from 1995, the original series was converted into a series of 9 volumes, last of which was released in 2004.  In 2004, a Special One Volume Bone Collection 1 VolumeEdition of the entire Bone Series, was released as a volume, comprising 1332 pages.

It was originally released to celebrate the end of the series and also to mark the deal they struck with Scholastic Inc, and was supposed to be restricted to a limited print run, so as to allow the sales of Scholastic to prosper,

But Cartoon Books, the brand which is owned by Jeff Smith, renegotiated the deal because Smith said he felt like the comic book stores still needed that edition.  As of now it is priced somewhere around $40, and is freely available in Amazon for order.

I remember seeing this edition in the local bookstores here, but at INR 2000, it's far out of reach for a humble collector, in me.  When will the Indian Book Distribution Agencies learn to get away from a Strict Dollar-To-Rupee Conversion, Geesh.

Scholastic Graphix: Bone #4
The DragonslayerBone 04 c1 ISBN: 978-81-7655-996-6
2008 | 176 Pgs | INR 350 | C5 | Color | Paperback

In the same year in 2004, that Scholastic Inc. began reissuing the individual volumes in full color, which eventually is the topic of this post. 

When compared with the original editions, which were in Black & White, the color editions were incredibly superior, and helped to bring Jeff Smith's artwork Bone 04 c2to a next level, which I guess even he wouldn't have dreamt to become.

Bone volume 4, comprises of eight chapters, along with a Prologue:

Prologue: Stick-Eater,
1. Business,
2. Earth & Sky,
3. Council in the Dark,
4. The Straggler,
5. Deliver Us these Laws,
6. The Midsummer's Day Plan,
7. The Turning,
8. On the Dragon's Stair

The typical examples being the Red Dragon, and the Rat Creatures, while the classic touch surrounding Bone is still retained with White Color theme.  Kudos to the efforts of Steve Hamaker, for his creditable work.

Jeff Smith has acknowledged this effort in many of his articles.  The process of colouring and releasing the books is still not complete, as only 8 out of the 9 have been released so far (at the time of posting this topic).  You could leave a note to Steve, on his weblog or personal website.  There are some good YouTube videos, where he explains about digital colouring, so it's worth a visit. 

For a sample of what Adobe Photoshop and little creative mind (Steve Hammer, in this case) can do, roll your mouse over the sample images below.  This made my long-time wish to learn and explore Adobe Photoshop, even stronger.

And coming back to the topic of this post, Scholastic India has now brought first 4 volumes of these Bone Saga to India, as Pack 1 bundled together, and also sold separately.  The Front and Back Cover scans of the same are provided along with this post.

The back-covers carries some of the famous quotes by various publishers and critics about the Bone Series, which speaks high about it, which the series truly deserves to every bit. Have a look at Jeff Smith's Official website:, for more details on the same, and a chance to hear on the latest works of Jeff's from his own words.

As per the last news, Bone Series is currently in plans to be made as CGI-Animated movie by Warner Bros.  That should make the saga much more famous in other parts of the world. And Jeff Smith has also said he wants to continue the adventures in the valley where the “Bone” adventures took place, with possible appearances by supporting characters. 

These would be chapter books set in the valley, written by Tom Sniegowski and illustrated by Smith.  The book would be aimed at tweens (Oops, I am counted out.  If at all Tweens has the same meaning as in Tolkien's The Fellowship of the Ring, where it refers to a hobbit between the ages of 20 and 32.  I would be called a Tween then.  Again, me and my fantasies).

As with the author, Jeff Smith is currently working on a New Series, again written and drawn by him, titled RASL.  The Preview on his blog, looks all the more enthralling, hope we could get a version to India sometime sooner, with the help of Scholastic's Graphix Imprint.

Staying on with Bone, Dark Horse in 2007 has released a hard-cover issue, named "Art of Bone".  It's said to be a collectors item, going on around with the background information and inspiration of Jeff Smith's Bone artwork, being retold by some of his confidents.  You could see a preview of that in Jeff's blog here.

Overall, I liked the series, and eagerly looking forward for the conclusion with the second pack of 5 issues.  With the Issue 9 still not out on print in US, that looks a long shot as of now.  Hopefully, Scholastic would bring them sooner.

idea_light_bulb UPDATE (June ‘10): As it turned out, Scholastic took a a whole year, to release the final set, regarding which you can read all about, in the new post here:
Graphix – Bone #5-9 | 2010

And that completes our run with Bone on Comicology, but it will never be the last rest assured. As always, please leave your comments about the post, in the below section.  I see 40+ visits to the Comicology everyday from site trackers.  Even though, I appreciate all those visits, I am disappointed from the fact that only 3 or 4 decide to leave a comment over a week long period. 

It takes more than a day's work to construe a topic, gather materials, write and format a Blog post, and with that I would be happy if half the visitors at least take a minute to post their view, reviews, "including criticism" as a comment.  It will let me know how good I am at this job, and will go a great deal in continuing my passion.  This will also help to let other blog readers to know that you have been to this place, where your hobbies meet.
