One thought on “Out from Boneville

  1. This comic shook up the comic industry something fierce when it came out From what I understand, it was one of the first big comics to not use any narration boxes or thought bubbles at all The story was entirely what you saw people doing, and what you heard them saying Needless to say, this is a huge change from the 60 s style of superhero comic where people were constantly flying around and thinking stupid things to themselves like, It s a good thing I can use my freeze breath to stop this fore [...]

  2. Fone, Phoney, and Smiley Bone are run out of Boneville after Phoney s latest shenanigans Lost in the desert, they become separated and Fone Bone, our protagonist, ends up in The Valley, a human dwelling part of the world, for the winter There he meets a beautiful young woman called Thorn and her kindly cow racing grandmother Ben But danger looms on the horizon as the Lord of Locusts and the rat creature army are massing I first read Jeff Smith s Bone nearly ten years ago in the all in one black [...]

  3. I read Bone way back in the early 90s when it was serialized in comic book form, before these gorgeous collections by I recently revisited these and found them to have aged incredibly well Like the best narratives for young audiences, the adventures of the three cousins Fone Bone, Smiley Bone, and Phoney Bone resonate with adults as well The only other analogue that comes to mind is some of the work by Pixar Jeff Smith has created a timeless series that I hope to read to my children someday For [...]

  4. This book was only OK At the beginning I had a hard time keeping the Bones straight Also, I didn t like how vague it was in the beginning about them getting kicked out of Boneville Then, they all got split up somehow and then they all wanted to go back to Boneville I thought this didn t create a strong storyline.However, I started to enjoy the book , around the last 30 pages The characters were developed and I felt like there was actually becoming a plot This book ended on a cliff hanger, but n [...]

  5. Beautiful aesthetics, a chilling and yet uplifting dark fantasy tale with friendship and adventure, and a tiny hero who readers can all relate to, Bone is one of the best graphic novels I have ever read.

  6. People I love think this is a friggin masterpiece, and I love them less for it now.I picked up the first volume of Bone because I d heard it had such amazing comic timing, a great storyline and relatively solid artwork No one mentioned that the dialogue reads as though it were written by a fifth grader, the humor is predictable and the story is so threadbare and uninteresting I began making up my own story for the panels And to say that the artwork is well done is like saying the dreamcatcher ha [...]

  7. Bad morning I wasn t sure I d ever review Jeff Smith s Bone After all, is there much that can be said that hasn t already been said Bone s so long been part of the canon of comics literature such as one exists that reviewing it at this point is like reviewing Watchmen or The Dark Knight Returns or Maus Or for the non comics literate, a bit like if someone penned a review today for Huckleberry Finn I mean, what s the point, really Still, I tell myself, there are those who haven t read the book ye [...]

  8. I first tried out Bone several years ago, and I just couldn t get into it I decided to give it a second chance, because I ve heard so much good about the series as a whole The second time through, I liked it quite a bit , but I still didn t love it The Bones are cute and cartoony and I did enjoy that Not really invested in whatever the bigger story is, though At least not yet I think this time I m going to try to read the whole series and see what I think of it as a whole.

  9. Well, first of all we have the charming cousins,sense of humour, love,and a dragon.But there are mysterious events going on,and there are monsters,and something very sinister lurking in the dark.This is just the beginning of the storyI d bought an original blackwhite version of this one a few years ago and that was quite lovely too The way the story progressed rather quietly, with the panels just speaking for themselvesNow I m reading the colored versions, I can t wait to read it all.

  10. Fone Bone s wealthy and arrogant cousin, Phoney Bone, has been run out of Boneville by the angry residents and Fone Bone agrees to help him, along with their other cousin, Smiley Bone But they get lost in the desert and have used up all their water and tempers are running high When a swarm of locusts sweeps through the valley they run for their lives and suddenly Fone Bone is falling Separated from the others and lost, he has only an old map that Smiley found that leads him through the mountains [...]

  12. Na preporuku i posudbu do ao sam do Bone stripa Uop e nisam znao to mogu ili trebam o ekivati Zbilja nisam znao ni ta o stripu Dobio sam jedan prili no zabavan i pustolovni po etak, uz prili no simplificirani stil, sve nacrtano crno bijelo, no istovremeno na takav na in da svaka slika bez ikakvih problema odra ava stanje likova, pogotovo njihove emocije.Sva sre a pa sam dobio knjigu u kojoj se nalaze sve pojedina no iza le knjige tako da u odmah nastaviti dalje, vidjeti kuda pustolovina vodi Bon [...]

  13. After reading a run of dark graphic novels this was a fabulous refreshing change The characters are so cute and loveable in this fairy tale like story set in an imaginary land We follow Fone Bone, Phoney Bone and Smiley Bone as they try to escape the uncharted desert but as they do this they get split up and each separately come in to a mysterious valley filled with scary creatures The tale is simple and the imagery almost childlike but I could not help being drawn in to their world A great ente [...]

  14. I m reading this to Gray, so like a responsible mother I read ahead to try to gauge whether there s anything in this that he d find troubling So far so good My kid has been a super graphic novel freak but no he may not read Ex Machina no matter how hard he pleads his case since he saw the cover of Saga Vol 1 and called it Monster and Love Had a Baby, so I ll call that so far so good as well.

  15. This brought back memories I used to read this as a weekly comic strip in the Ohio State University newspaper in the early 80s Of course, back then, it was a black and white strip The coloring is an improvement The story is outstanding, and I ll be diving right into the next volume Bone, Vol 2 The Great Cow Race D

  16. My 8 year old son received this entire series for Christmas and is flying through them This one was very entertaining Art work is great, too I guess I have to read them all now to see if Phone, Smiley, and Phoney ever get back to Boneville.

  17. I read this at the behest of some friends who, when I was declaring Garth Ennis s Preacher as my favorite comic series of all time, started singing the praises of Bone Now, I had never even HEARD of Bone before, but their recommendation was glowing, so I picked up the first volume While I certainly enjoyed reading it, I don t quite understand why they hold it in such laudable esteem Perhaps nostalgia plays a factor this book geared for the all ages crowd, coming out originally in 1991 If I had r [...]

  18. OK, this graphic novel was really cute Maybe others wouldn t define the Bone characters as cute but I found them endearing I don t usually read graphic novels like this, however I have read all of the Calvin and Hobbes, For Better or For Worse, Zits, and Bucky the Cat Bone, Out from Boneville, is the first volumes in the series The main character, Fone Bone, hangs out with his two misfit cousins, Phoncible P Bone and Smiley Bone Phoncible is the Mayor of Boneville, but he is a bit shady I got th [...]

  19. 21 June 2013After so many years of hearing how great this series is, I finally picked up Bone, Vol 1 Out from Boneville to see what all the hullabaloo is all about By now I surely should have learned my lesson about jumping on the bandwagon of what everyone else is loving, but I always have hope that I ll be surprised so I go against my gut Perhaps there is something wrong with me, but this didn t wow me as I had hoped it would.The dialogue is elementary and often quite dull I read a lot of chil [...]

  20. Quick thoughts This was alright, though after reading the Amulet series I know there s better middle grade graphic novels out there There was surprisingly a lot of smoking in this too, which was weird And Bone, the main character pictured on the cover, falls in love with a pretty human girl, which was also a little strange Some of the humor fell flat but some of it made me chuckle Bone s cousin, Phoney Bone, is a huge jerk though and I was glad when he wasn t in the story and disappointed when h [...]

  21. Bone didn t make it onto my radar until a coworker recommended it for my TinTin obsessed eight year old cousin realizing that I, too, am TinTin obsessed, I decided to give it a shot.And, wow Bone has the adventure of TinTin and the impeccable comic timing and sensibility of Walt Kelly s Pogo in short, it s the funniest, most exciting, smartest comic book you ve never heard of.Let me put it another way Regardless of whether or not you read comic books at all, if you have a pulse and you can read, [...]

  22. I ve tried numerous times to read this silly book, and it s never worked out I ve never made it than a few pages before becoming bored and fed up with the line drawings.Then I tried reading a version with colored illustrations Oh boy What a big difference that made It became so much easier to tell Fone Bone apart from his cousins, and the backgrounds actually became interesting The panels popped off of the page and pulled me in I actually wanted to finish the book And maybe even pick up the nex [...]

  23. Bone and his two cousins are kicked out of Boneville, or rather, Fone Bone was kicked out for a picnic with bad prunes and a huge balloon that destroyed a local landmark, and the other two Bones are sharing his exile The three are split up, and Bone finds his way to a forest realm, where he is menaced by big furry hungry things with red eyes, and where he is befriended by the lovely Thorn and her take no prisoners Granny He s also protected by the enigmatic Big Red Dragon for reasons that are un [...]

  24. I went into this book thinking I was going to hate it or at least feel like I was wasting my time, then before I knew it, I was somehow compelled to continue reading Why I don t really know I guess the story is decent, the characters are somewhat interesting, but there s nothing about this that really has made an exclamation point blink above my head.Regardless, I can t stop reading the series now, and honesty that s probably what s so entrancing about this book, it s so fucking readable It s cr [...]

  25. This first book of Bone sets up the looming darkness, which our hero Fone Bone will have to face Smith does so in a way reminiscent of the Lord of the Rings trilogy a dark past, a smoldering evil, a little hero I laughed out loud throughout the book The humor reminded me of the wise cracking, slap stick, and well timed humor of Nickolodeon s Avatar cartoon series I was also impressed at how Smith made three almost identical in physical appearance characters so distinct Smith manages to convey a [...]
