Smith coming in JULY!
BONE:CODA Celebrates 25

Columbus, Ohio – April
co·da (ˈkōdə) noun 1. the concluding passage of a
piece or movement, typically forming an addition to the basic structure. 2. a
concluding event, remark, or section.
25 years after the
first black & white issue of the self-published comic book BONE appeared on
comic shop shelves, and over a decade since the concluding chapter comes a new
(and completely superfluous!) adventure featuring the Bone cousins! Ride along
with the boys and their friend Bartleby the Baby Rat Creature as they brave the
dangerous journey across the desert back to Boneville in their rickety cow
cart. Written and drawn by creator Jeff Smith.
Also included in this new
graphic novel is the complete text of The BONE Companion fully
illustrated for the first time! Written by award winning comics historian
Stephen Weiner, author of 101 Outstanding Graphic Novels, Faster than
a Speeding Bullet: The Rise of the Graphic Novel, The Hellboy Companion,
and The Will Eisner Companion.
All this plus rare
behind the scenes photos & memories (find out what band Jeff listened to
most while working; hint: there’s a hidden clue on the image above!), and an
afterword by the author thanking the comics community and the readers, all add
up to make this a truly special commemorative volume of BONE to add to your
