    Hello I’m Bo and I’m only 12, but I really like the Bone series and I actually like to draw myself. I’ve read all of them except for Tall Tales. I wanted to know if Mr. Smith was going to make another Bone series..Thank you.

    Hey, I’m not sure if this will be read, but Jeff, THANK YOU for writing the Bone comics. They have been an inspiration to me and I fell in love with them immediately. I was heartbroken when I finished Crown of Horns, but, all good things must come to an end. Right? Wrong. I think, no, I KNOW that you should continue writing the Bone books. For example, you could do a story arc on The Big War with Gran’ma Ben, or you could do one on the battle with the dragons, and then you could do one with Fone Bone, Smiley Bone and Phoney Bone. I’m assuming they got back to Boneville, because in Tall Tales, Smiley has three unseen Bone’s with him. Maybe they all go to visit Thorn and Gran’ma, but the valley is DRENCHED WITH DESTRUCTION! I know, typical Hollywood sellout plotline, but you could make it work. Please write back if you see this, (or not)

    Hello Jeff.

    I immediately latched onto your Bone series back when it first came out at Casablanca Comics in Windham Maine back in the 1990′s. I gave up comics in general about half way through the run of Bone though, but I just had to thank you for some great adventures. The book was such a breath of fresh air after the big black and white indie comic collapse. Take care. Drew

    Bo,
    Not making another bone series as far as I know, but he’s illustrated Bone books by another author. Look up Quest for the Spark.

    Hi Jeff! Bone is my favorite book in the whole world! I’ve read it at least ten times! I have started reading it for (I think) the eleventh time with my Mom, who has also enjoyed it. I enjoy writing and drawing, and made a super hero who has a red cape, and is named Milkcarton! (who is a milk carton, strangely.).
    I love the mixture of humor and adventure in a comic form. My favorite characters are probably Kingdok, Fone Bone, and Thorn. Kingdok is a great villain, who won’t let anyone push him around (even though he does get bossed by Briar). Fone Bone is very funny and courageous. Thorn is smart and tough! Your work has inspired me to make comics and stories. I also hope to meet you some day! I live in Roanoke, VA, and have been to a comic convention.
    Your fan,
    Cole

    Every Saturday I sit down and read…. ALL of the BONE books again and again! I have a great collection (including the 9 BONE books, Rose, Tall Tales, Art of BONE, handbook, and Quest for Spark books) which keeps me occupied for hours and hours. If one of my friends come to my house I always ask if they have read BONE. If they say yes, I show them my collection of BONE. If they say know I make them read a few BONE books. The artwork and the story combined create the greatest story I have ever read. Thank you and PLEASE keep writing!

    Hey Jeff Smith,

    I’ve always been a fan of your books. Ever since I was a kid, up until the last issue of Bone, I’ve enjoyed your work.

    But ever since 2008, I’ve been looking forward to the movie and wanted to know if it was put on hiatus like it was stopped with Nickelodeon. I’ve been looking forward to the movies, and hope Warner Bros is still working on it.

    Cheers!

      I would be scared to watch a BONE movie. My fear would be that the movie would somehow ruin the book. Then my life is ruined.

    Despite being a few weeks away from my medical boards I bought Bone to read to my nieces when I visited. Of course I ended up opening it up today and read the entire color collection front to back only getting up for water and bathroom breaks. I am struck by no matter how hard I am studying for for my boards any subject is child’s play in comparison to the wonderful and imaginative world you created with bone. That takes true creativity and a gift, not to mention the fact that the art was done by yourself. You have truly contributed a great work to the world–I loved it and I am sure my nieces will as well!

    P.S. Please somehow set up another ending or adventure where bone hooks up with Thorn it killed me seeing the lil guy never make it !

      Since no one will put those two together in a published book, there should be more fanfiction with this pairing. There is a tragic lack of fanfiction for Bone.

    Can you make a series all about the valley? I was looking at the handbook for BONE and I’m still mystified about some things going on in the books. Or was I supposed to be mystified. Or am I just stupid…. (hope not). I love your books and I am hoping that BONE will live on for many generations after us!

    I have discovered Bone years back thanks to US friends – I remember that I bought the first copy of a Bone issue in Boston I believe in 2005 – on the edge of turning 50 yrs old I am about to read again all the color editions of Bone from Out of Boneville to the Crown of Horns…the passion for this Comic will burn in my soul until I will srop dead…I am not an avid Comics reader but I am not sure what bone did to me!

    I also started to read Bone to my 3 yrs old daughter (she is sometimes exposed to English language, but still too early for her to understand all what I am reading…) and she already asked me (in Italian) show me the “Principessa” (Princess Thorn) and “il Dragone” (The Red Dragon)!!!!!!!!

    Forever Bone…
