Bone Volume 7 Ghost Circles

Feb 26, 2015 by

5 Stars, Buy it   Just as good as the others. it’s amazing how consistent the writing and the art are.  Thorn is amazing and of course Fone bone is completely loveable. I do miss the Dragon who hasn’t been in this volume much.   I really can’t come up with much else to say other than what I’ve said in the previous reviews. If you haven’t read the series of graphic novels, you have no idea what you are missing. Summary from Publisher: A long dormant volcano explodes, freeing the ancient evil known only as the Locust, and filling the land with soot and ash. Alone and frightened, the Bone cousins, Thorn and feisty old Gran’ma Ben must fight the elements and the rat creatures as they struggle to reach the glorious city of...

Bone Volume 5

Jan 15, 2015 by

5 Stars, buy it   Self Purchase, Comixology, Re-read review   It really is amazing how consistently good this comic is. Art continues to be fabulous and the writing is amazing as well.  Everyone should be reading this series of graphic novels. They are amazing even on the second time around.   Plot/Storyline: I forgot Moby Dick plays a role in this although I’ve never actually read it. I’d forgotten about Bartleby and how cute he is. In issue two, the opossum children are following Fone Bone and Smileybone. Of course trouble calls and they meet an orphan Racoon. Then more trouble happens and they meet Rockjaw who chases them and they end up trapped high on a ledge. And when things calm down in the final issue, Bartleby ends up going back with...

Bone Volume 4 The Dragonslayer

Dec 31, 2014 by

5 Stars, Buy it   Comixology purchased, re-read   Amazing, just amazing. Even if I’ve read them before.  It’s a great series for young and old. The art work is amazing, the writing is awesome, everything is perfect about this series. Highly recommend for everyone. I honestly can’t remember how the series ends, but I would totally love for Fone Bone and Thorn to end up together.   In the first issue in this volume, grandma is getting the feeling that something bad is going to happen while traveling with Fone bone and Thorn.  Meanwhile, Lucius is furious that Phone Bone is making more money on his half of the bar. In the 2nd issue Bone, Thorn and Grandma are cornered by rat creatures. Issue 3 starts with the stupid rat creatures being hilarious....

Bone, Volume 3

Dec 12, 2014 by

  5 Stars, Buy it. Self Purchase, Comixology, Reread review The writing and the art are consistent and amazingly good.  I love grandma, I love Thorn, I love Fone Bone. I even really like the Dragon.   I originally read this series years and years ago and even gave them to my nephews who absolutely adored them.  I still love them and have every intention of getting Owen to read them once he actually can read. In anycase, these books are awesome and for most ages. Young kids could get pretty scared by some of the darker stuff and wouldn’t understand some of the more complicated plot. Even if you think you don’t like graphic novels, seriously, give these a try. They are brilliant. Plot Summary:  Smiley and Phoney Bone are off with Lucious.  Grandma...
