Bernie knows how to dress for the snowy winters – Fone Bone not so much.
Creators Jenni Holm (Babymouse, My First Comics), Andy Runton (Owly), Dan Santat (Harold and Hog Pretend for Real, The Cookie Fiasco), and Jeff Smith (Bone, Little Mouse Gets Ready) chat with Debbie Huey (Programming Specialist for San Mateo County Libraries and creator of Bumperboy) and moderator Tracy Edmunds (Graphic Novels are Elementary!) about comics for K-2 readers. Find out why comics are a great medium for boosting literacy and practicing comprehension skills, and enjoy fascinating stories about the creation of these fantastic books.
Show us your BONE One Volume Edition! Dog-eared. Torn. Tattered. Duct taped. Clean and pristine. Let’s see ’em!
Jeff is a huge fan of Charlie Chaplin! We found this clip of how camera wizardry was done in the 1930’s – very cool! https://youtu.be/K4oTcWevGfs

Late last year, Jeff was interviewed by Fundación Telefónica – where he discussed Self Publishing, origins, inspirations and a bit of everything in between! BONE and RASL are currently published in Spanish by Astiberri Ediciones.

Like nearly everyone, Cartoon Books has been working remotely during the pandemic and we’ve all set up home workspaces. We decided to share pics. Here are some photos of Tom and Kathleen’s home offices as well as the new Boneville Store home base!

It’s a new year and we’re looking forward to bringing you some cool new stuff! What kind of items would you like to see us offer this year? Shirts? Lithos? Bookmarks? Stickers? Put on those thinking caps!
ComicBooks for Kids has a new sister organization – ComicBooks for Troops! We recently partnered with this very worthwhile organization who donates graphic novels to children in medical facilities. They also donate to our servicemen and women! Here is a pic of one of our overseas troops with a copy of RASL! If you can, consider donating to this great organization!
As with many of the events this year, Brazil’s CCXP festival went virtual. As part of their programming, Jeff was interviewed by the great Fabio Moon! Here is a link to the interview, which we hope you find as enjoyable as it was participating in. CCXP was a huge success, reaching more than 1.5 million people!
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2021! Cheers to better days, friends!
Out with the old is right. Good riddance 2020!
Why yes. The Bone One Volume Edition is not only a wild ride in graphic novel form, BUT it also doubles as a pillow! Thanks for the awesome photo, @APESD25
