So much of a series hangs on the ending.

In many ways, it doesn't matter how good a series is if the ending doesn't fit properly.

This is one of the things that makes Sandman such a stand-out success. Not just that it *has* an ending. Not just that the ending is *good.* But that it has an ending that is as near to perfect as an ending can be. An ending that you read and think, "Oh yes. Of course."

And even if you wish it might have gone a little different, you know deep in your heart it had to b

What a ride that was! I did not except to love this series as much as I did, and be sad that it ended, as much as I am.

The finale was just as epic as i excepted. It wrapped things up perfectly. And the ending was so bittersweet, but when I think about it, I wouldn't change a thing.

In conclusion, amazing series, and I would recommend it to anyone who is into graphic novels.

This is a review of all nine volumes of Bone.

I'm not as wild about this series as some people seem to be.

While the artwork is spectacular, the story takes forever to arrive at what I thought was a rather unsatisfying conclusion.

Too many of the books featured the main characters being chased over hill and dale by one manner of large scary creature or another. I know that sometimes the journey is more important than the destination, but to me...they just kept wagon training.

Since this is the last volume, this is a review of the series overall. I really enjoyed it! It was funny and full of excitement, employing just enough fantasy tropes to keep the story on the track, but with enough originality, humor, and flair to be its own thing. The characters are constructed slowly, over the course of storylines, so that by the time the ending comes, you’re wholly invested in what’s happening. As such, Bone is greater than the sum of its parts, and as a cohesive comic book, i ...more

This is a series that grew tremendously from the first volume. At first, it felt like a very light, jokey comic, and I wasn't really into it. But as the story went on, it became much deeper and a good bit darker. By the end of this volume, this was an epic fantasy that can rightfully draw comparisons to Lord of the Rings. It was pretty cool to see it grow, and so naturally.

When I began this series, I tried to write a review of each volume. I had to give that up because the beginning of the series is like a completely different animal than the end and I was feeling frustrated, but now that I've really finished, I feel I have to say something.

I'm not a traditional comic reader. I prefer more adult titles, and especially those that have a beginning , middle and end. Those that can be collected and you don't need to search out titles from the 30s to get the right feel for

Awww, the ending wasn't super-special-happy! Serious sniffles for Lucius.

It's kind of funny. Smith really did set it up so that there didn't appear to be a win-win situation - I was really hoping the Bone cousins wouldn't split up, but also that Fone Bone wouldn't have to leave Thorn, but also that Phoney and Smiley would be happy (though I think Smiley would be happy anywhere). It seemed more obvious to have them stay; Thorn HAS to, and Fone Bone is in love with her, whereas nobody

Brilliant series. It came recommended from a friend, and in all honesty I thought I'd at best like it, at worst have to hedge about hating it, but it was genuinely one of the most enjoyable things I've read since the beginning of this term.

To begin with, the Bones are perfect. And hilarious. Like, guffaw-out-loud-in-the-middle-of-class-hilarious (not the best idea, really). Smiley is so adorable I want to adopt him, Fone Bone grows on you despite his righteousness, and even annoying Phoney Bo

Reason for Reading: next and last in the series.

A powerful, exciting finale to a most enjoyable series. Coming up to this last book I had some trepidation. Would it be worth the journey? Would it be a satisfying end? I can wholeheartedly say yes to both those questions. First off we are presented with a nice fat volume considerably larger than previous volumes, letting us know we can settle down for a good read.

This book was about a bone creature and a girl named thorn save the whole village from these evil circles called ghost circles. Thorn has the locust in her and a bone creature helps her through all the way to the crown of horns. When Thorn touched bone he got the locust in him too. When they touched the Crown Of Horns everything goes back to noramal.

Tore through this final book of the series. Everything wrapped up nicely. Great humor that has been a cornerstone of the series is still present. By far the most action of all the Bone books. All characters from past books made an appearance. Fun stuff.

I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys graphic novels with a touch of fantasy. Maybe a tad more than a touch, like a heavy pet of fantasy.

Oh gosh, Bone, how were you such a superb series? Why do you have to be done?

I first knew of Bone when I worked in a bookstore and saw the complete set for sale on the shelves. Bone The Complete Edition it was. The cover intrigued me, as did the sheer massive size of the book. It's a veritable tome, the cover of which is irresistible.



Knowing nothing of the series, wouldn't you want to pick that up? It went up on my to-read list and was unfortunately forgotten, the copies sold quickly, life moved on. Then the series

The epic conclusion to this series left me feeling a bit melancholy. I wish there was some more time to spend with these delightful characters, but I am at least grateful for how the story panned out. There is much excitement in these final chapters, and the potential world-ending work of the Locust creates a sense of imminent doom as our lovable characters do their best to save the valley and all its inhabitants. With lots of ups and downs, close calls, and general excitement, this felt a very ...more

This is the final book. Fone Bone, Thorn, and Bartleby enter a big cave system where all of dragons live to try and touch a object that will kill the hooded one and The lord of the locusts. All while Kingdoc, the hooded one, the pawa men, and the rat creatures, try to enter the kindom of Atheia to try and kill the queen. All while the lord of the locusts has entered the most powerful beings body, Mim, the queen of dragons, he is heading towards the kingdom to destroy everyone and everything.

I loved this series and I think that this was one of my favorites. This one was scary sad and very adventurous. It was very amazing and i am so sad that it is over but I am excited to read another graphic novel series. And read more books by Jeff Smith.

There are a few parts I would nitpick a little, but overall this is a great ending to a great story. This is as epic a tale as any I've ever read; there are dragons, monsters, talking animals and bugs, queens, princesses, mystical warriors, ancient evil, love, humor, betrayal and TREASURE! Every volume became more and more of a page turner, more and more intense, more and more engaging, more and more enjoyable, but I can still only give it 4 stars overall.

And thus I end one of the greatest sequential art series I have ever read. It wasn't perfect. I wanted so badly for it to be perfect. And it was close, oh was it close! Every page building up to the climax was gold. The climax was golden as well. So suspenseful, played out brilliantly in a page by page, beat by beat manner. One of the only things, if not the only thing, comics has over prose novels is that you can pace your action and revelations in a page to page manner that would be very, very ...more

The first time I'd heard about the Bone cousins was in the back pages of Dave Sim's Cerebus. There was a short preview and it immediately drew me in. The art was simple yet clean, it reminded me alot of Walt Kelley's Pogo, and the story content actually got a chuckle.
At that time, Bone was just starting out and had maybe 4 issues of the regular comic printed out on the market. I chased them down and read them in a single sitting... I was hooked!

Bone, Volume 9: Crown of Horns, by Jeff Smith was a fascinating read that served as the conclusion of the Bone series. In this volume, a full-fledged war ensues as Briar, the rat creatures and the Pawan army invade the city of Atheia, the royal city. In order to defend their beloved city, Fone Bone and Thorn embark on an epic quest in search of the Crown of Horns, which they considered to be their last hope in winning the battle. The book, which is 212 pages in total, was fast-paced, action pack ...more

The Crown OF Horns was a really good book. It was about this girl named Thorn and a little Bone guy named Bone. And they go off to find the Crown Of Horns. Back at the village they had a war going on against the Rat Creatures. When they find the Crown of Horns Thorn got bit by a Rat Creature. When she got out of the Rat Creatures jaws they touched the stone and had to go because they woke up the dragons. They finally made it back to the village and Thorn became the queen of the village and Bone ...more

Book nine of the Bone graphic novel series, this is the indispensable final chapter. I don’t know what kind of creature Fone Bone is, but he stumbles into high fantasy when he gets lost in the woods on the way to Boneville, and meets rat creatures, princesses in exile, and even dragons. It all culminates here, with the rat creatures massing for war, and a kingdom to retake.
Highly recommended, each book is a chapter in the overall story, and you’d better own all of them!
For ages 10 and up.

Guarded by dragons, the Crown of Horns is the only thing that can stop the Locust and end the war. But there is a problem. They don't know how they can defeat Locust but Fone Bone believes he knows the answer.

A bittersweet ending, resolution for all the characters involved, epic and funny intertwined, and tough choices for everyone involved. Which all comes together to make an appropriate ending to a great series. My son and I were both satisfied, and enjoyed this several month journey together. He even said, "let's read it again!" I'm hoping to wait until his brother is old enough to listen too.

I still like the quiche rat creatures the best.
