“This is a 40th anniversary volume of Thorn appearing in The Lantern, the Ohio State University school newspaper. I knew of Jeff Smith and Bone, but had not read much, so when I got a chance to read the prequel to his famous series, I jumped at the chance. Boy, am I glad I did! I was in college/grad school at the time these strips first appeared (but not at OSU) so the culture and events these strips interacted with were familiar to me. I got the jokes and enjoyed the parodies. I also enjoyed the interviews and history of this project. Now I cannot wait to get my hands on the Bone books themselves!
I want to thank Cartoon Books for the opportunity to read this title!”
