This picture of The Red Dragon and Kurt Cobain came from a website called Two-Timing My Scrapbook. It's one of the New York blogger's favorite images. Why? I have no idea… but I like the photo.
Meanwhile, I haven’t had much time to update the blog. I’ve been dealing with some rough deadlines for Bone 7: Ghost Circles (Scholastic), The Art of Bone (Dark Horse), The Complete Pogo (Fantagraphics), and of course, Shazam! The Monster Society of Evil #4 (DC). All of these will show up in production journals soon (we have some new Monsters Eggs that we'll sprinkle about in the coming weeks!), but for now, let me point you to Blake Bell’s Great Bone Re-Read. Today is the seventh entry, and he has just finished reading the first Bone trilogy.
Here’s a short excerpt:
“[the end of this] chapter ushers in a connection between the hooded menace and the bartender, Lucius. Meanwhile, Phoney Bone gets a leg up on his attempts to win his double-or-nuthin' bar bet, and Jeff closes Book Three with Gran'ma Ben pulling the troops outta the barn and heading off for safer ground. Jeff does a great job pacing the final chapter to leave you with the impression that nothing will be the same again, and that the series is about to explode. So, we're off for your Bone lovers til next Wednesday for the round-up of Book 4. See you then!”
With that one sentence about nothing being the same again, I feel sure that whether or not he ends up liking the story, Blake definitely gets it. Here are the previous entries: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, and Part Six. Bell also talks about a lot of other very cool and interesting things on his site. Check it out!
