Jeff Smith created a classic funnybook for the nineties, combining Walt Disney/Chuck Jones-style artwork with strong storytelling and characterization. Bone is the story of a little character called Fone Bone. Originally from Boneville, he finds himself trapped in our world along with relatives Phoney Bone and Smiley Bone. This gaggle of characters has a host of adventures (and misadventures) while searching for a way back home.

Winner of numerous awards including the 1994 Eisner for Best New Series and the 1995 Eisner for Best Continuing Series, Bone has appeal for young and old alike.
