Rose (Bone 0.5)
The hit comic book mini-series Rose now comes to you in a single handsome package with a brand-new cover!

In the old days, when BONE'S Gran'ma Ben was a teenager, a

This has more of a faerie tale feel to it than the original series, both in the art, and in the meat of the story itself. And because of that, I might have actually enjoyed it more than Bone.
That said, I wouldn't advise reading it alone. It works best as a prequel read *after* you've finished the original series.
Would definitely recommend this to anyone who read and liked Bone series. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
Naravno iako su nam i sami likovi kao i situacije poznate iz glavnog serijala, nacin na koji je sve prikazano je ipak i originalan i odlican.
Svaka preporuka narocito za ljubitelje Bone srijala mada ako i to niste citali slobodno procitajte posto je prica ipak zaokruzena celina.

All that whining out of the way, this was a very good story and should be read by anyone who doubts the comic book medium's ability to portray depth(these people still exist, sadly).

Although it was odd to have a switch of illustrator, Vess did a very nice job with illustration. The charac ...more
This was a really hard book to give a rating to. The story is written by Jeff Smith and the cover illustration is by him as well but once one opens up the book all familiarity is gone. The illustrations are by Charles Vess, who has a completely different style than Smith, and the font used is actually a little hard to read. I loved the story but did not like, at all, the illustrations, even though Vess won an ...more
This book is a prequel to Bone series. This book incorporates the world of fantasy including magnificent and unrealistic elements such as dragons and princess. Also, the illustrations of the book were beautiful and fascinating. The story is about the princesses called Rose and Baiar who are sisters. However, Rose is more adored by people than Bair and she also can see through her "dream eye" which is a special skill set. Always being shaded by Rose, Baiar dedicates her s ...more

Why I Read It: I read and ended up really enjoying Smith's Bone series earlier this spring/summer so I knew I had to read the prequel at some point. Spoiler-free review ahead.
A prequel Bone comic with Gran'ma Ben (though she's a strapping young lass here and nowhere near a grandmother) as the main character? HELL YES!! I was quite excited to read this, especially since the original comic series doesn't touch on the past with Rose and Briar all that much. You know i ...more
