Scholastic Makes Official New Bone Volume One To Celebrate Ten Years Of Publication


Scholastic made official something that's been discussed semi-openly since last year -- that cartoonist Jeff Smith is working on new Bone-related material for an anniversary-style celebration of his book's time at the children's publishing giant. A color edition of Bone Volume One: Out From Bonesville -- the book that launched the Graphix imprint and cemented children's graphic novel publishing as a feature of the North American marketplace -- will be released in February of next year.

In addition to the color work by Jeff Smtih and color artist Steve Hamaker, the anniversary edition will contain a "brand-new illustrated poem" by Smith, as well as a series of small-comics and pin-ups from a number of Smith's favorite cartoonists, friends, and fellow category mainstays. The PR announced Kate Beaton, Jeffrey Brown, Kazu Kibuishi, Dav Pilkey, Raina Telgemeier and Craig Thompson,

Jeff Smith appeared at Comic-Con International this year on behalf of this announcement and also in support of his new print comic book, Tuki #1.
