Here it is, the first ever Bone plush toy.
Can you believe it? The stuffed Fone Bone stands 13" tall and should be available sometime in July. This is the proto-type, and we took pictures of it yesterday to get ready for the Previews catalog. I’ll have more information later when it we get closer to the order date.
We recently received e-mails from two of my overseas publishers with news about some comics awards: Leftereis Staurianos,of Jemi, in Athens, writes to say:
Bone won the "Best Greek edition of foreign comic" award in the Comicdom con. We had to "fight" with Conan chronicles, Mafalda, Life and time of Scrooge McDuck, and Persepolis.
All my best
Below is a picture from the Greek leg of the World Tour.
Then we heard from Spain:
Hello Vijaya and Jeff,
Just a few words to let you know that BONE has been nominated as Best translated graphic novel for the awards of the forthcoming Barcelona Comics Festival!
Laureano Dominguez is from my Spanish publisher, Astiberri. I had a great time when I was there. I’ve got my fingers crossed, Laureano!
THE GREAT BONE RE-READ
And lastly for today, The Great Bone Re-read. Blake Bell has an interesting website called Best Of Most Of where he talks about comics and pop culture. On March 22, he proposed a Bone Re-read and he invites everyone to play at home. He seems to like the first three chapters so far. We’ll drop in on him every now and then to check on his progress.
