it was amazing

A friend gave the Bone single volume collection to me a gift one year. I wasn't familiar with the series prior to that but had just finished a semester of graduate english lit courses that focused on cultural studies and serial fiction. Bone is Lord of the Rings meets Dickens. I loved it. The beginning pages hooked me with humor, the middle turned into serious plot with social commentary, then wrapped everything up but was a little too ladden with explanations, I thought, of the authors vision and Bone mythology. I would recommend this to comic and graphic novel lovers, serialized fiction lovers... anyone who likes to read really. It looks intimidating because the book is so hefty, but it'll rest nicey on any coffee table or nightstand wihout clashing with the decor of the room until you can read through to the end.
