    I’ve just gotten through the first book of the B&W one volume Bone and I can safely say the book is racist.
    Only 2 bugs have featured, that’s an under representation of the bug race. Jeff is clearly a Bone supremacist.

    Congratulations Jeff,

    You have joined the ranks of Vonnegut, Salinger and Twain. That’s quite good company to keep.

    BONE is one of my favorite graphic novels. I have all the Saga including the book with Big Johnson and his fables separate.
    It made me crack up more then three times and gave me further influence to read more. It is ridiculous how so many people take everything seriously, lump things with something else that would be off topic and offensive and make up stupid laws about it and ruin the fun for everyone, like the act that supposed to ban fan fiction or fan art. Other then making a living from making BONE, Jeff Smith made
    this saga because he wanted to, and share his art and sense of humor with the world, and not keep it under wraps in his thoughts of creativity. That’s what we as artists and cartoonists do.
