Moby Bone

 

Repot from @jonathanhliu: Moby Dick was published (in the US) on November 14, 1851. I’ve never read it, but I did read the Bone series by @jeffsmithsbone so I pretty much know what it’s about, right?

BONE Recommended Reading – Emory University Library Research Guide

Dr. Brad Hawley outlines the merits of Graphic Novels in his piece: ‘Why You Should Read Comics: A Manifesto!’ and gives BONE the highest compliment imaginable: “if your child has never read Jeff Smith’s Bone, I consider it the equivalent of never having heard of Shakespeare. Bone is a masterpiece of literature that should be in every single home.” WOW!

TUKI: Fight for Fire

BOOKLIST *STARRED* REVIEW:

“If Smith’s iconic BONE weren’t proof enough, TUKI resoundingly restates his status as a master cartoonist of our era…New readers will love it, and fans of BONE will delight in Smith’s return to fantasy adventure with an ensemble of idiosyncratic characters.”

For Indie Comics, The Return Of Small Press Shows Is A Big Deal

Forbes article about the return of small press festivals: “We saw that in Europe, they would have festivals that took place all over town, so attendees could really get a flavor of the city. We wanted to bring that style of festival here to Columbus, so we coordinated with the local arts institutions to build a comics-focused event.” said CXC co-founder Jeff Smith, creator of the beloved comics series Bone.
