Excellent, inspirational review of Jeff Smith's work and influence. I definitely wouldn't recommend this to anyone who hasn't read Bone, but having read the comic, I enjoyed this and it made me want to go back and read Bone again.

Very cool read for anyone who's interested in doing their own comics or graphic work, as well.

If you didn't get to see the exhibit of Jeff Smith's work on display at the Wexner Center this summer, this book is a close approximation. It features an interesting, in-depth interview with Smith, as well as essays full of gushing praise from Neil Gaiman and Scott McCloud. The presentation is very handsome, and even though it reads quickly, there is plenty of art that makes you want to sit and study every detail.
