Read full description of the books Bone, Volume 1: Out from Boneville:This comic shook up the comic industry something fierce when it came out.
From what I understand, it was one of the first big comics to not use any narration boxes or thought bubbles at all. The story was entirely what you saw people doing, and what you heard them saying.
Needless to say, this is a *huge* change from the 60's style of superhero comic where people were constantly flying around and thinking stupid things to themselves like, "It's a good thing I can use my freeze breath to stop this forest fire!"
The first time I read it, I didn't know any of that. I just thought it was a good story.
Reading it again now, I still enjoy it. It holds up amazingly well given that it's over 20 years old. A lot of things I read from 20 years ago seem really dated. Or I find that I remember them differently than they really are. (Like Sandman.) But not this one.
It's worth your time. Especially if you want to read the "classics" in the genre. This is one of the foundation stones of modern comics.
Dealbreakers: It's in black and white. That didn't bother me at all. But I'm guessing it might throw some people off.

Born and raised in the American mid-west, Jeff Smith learned about cartooning from comic strips, comic books, and watching animation on TV. In 1991, he launched a company called Cartoon Books to publish his comic book BONE, a comedy/adventure about three lost cousins from Boneville. Against all odds, the small company flourished, building a reputation for quality stories and artwork. Word of mouth, critical acclaim, and a string of major awards helped propel Cartoon Books and BONE to the forefront of the comic book industry.
In 1992, Jeff’s wife Vijaya Iyer joined the company as partner to handle publishing and distribution, licensing, and foreign language publications. In the Spring of 2005, Harry Potter’s U.S. publisher Scholastic entered the graphic novel market by launching a new imprint, Graphix with a full color version of BONE: Out from Boneville, bringing the underground comic to a new audience and a new generation.
In 2007, DC Comics released Smith’s first non-creator owned work, SHAZAM! Monster Society of Evil, a four-part mini-series recreating a classic serial from comic’s Golden Age. Between projects, Smith spends much of his time on the international guest circuit promoting comics and the art of graphic novels.
