Jeff Smith returns to BONE for one last time!

Cartoon Books just released news that Jeff Smith will return to do an original graphic novel of Bone, entitled BONE : CODA this summer!

Bone Coda

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 collection!

BONE: CODA is scheduled to arrive in July.
