    1. I could tell you a whole lot about the origins of Bone and how it went from a struggling self published title to a phenomenon, but if I did, I d spoil a lot of this book for you It s not that I would spoil the story itself the story at the beginning of this book is just a lagniappe to the larger story but about two thirds of this title is comprised of Smith s own recollections and The Bone Companion, a literary look at the entire saga So the book is nonfiction than fiction, really.That being sa [...]


    2. A mixed bag The volume starts with a Bone story which picks up at the end of the big ol Bone One Volume edition It s charming, funny, and completely unnecessary to the Bone storyline just a nicely appreciated piece of lagniappe Then you get an essay from Jeff Smith on the history of Bone, complete with pictures and reminiscences on the self publishing scene A fun read for me as the 90 s was when I got into independent alternative comics Finally, there s the Bone Companion, which is mostly just e [...]


    3. Reading Bone introduced me to the world of graphic novels and comics, so purchasing this was a no brainier Besides I have all the original black and white hardcover volumes I love everything by Jeff Smith in this little book, but I was pretty bored by the rest of the material I now want to go back and read the whole series again.


    4. Un postre bastante apropiado para cerrar el delicioso fest n que es la serie Contiene un breve cuento que narra un peque o suceso en el camino de vuelta hacia Boneville y una serie de textos divididos en un breve estudio de la obra, la historia de su publicaci n y una entrevista a Jeff Smith Interesante complemento.


    5. I love Jeff Smith s one, but this really is a volume for die hard fans and completists only The biggest draw is obviously the New Bone Chapter is good fun, but if Bone was an epic blockbuster movie one day, I can but hope then this new chapter is little than an extended post credits scene It s fun but doesn t add anything to the main story and we still don t get to see Boneville The next bit, A Moveable Pizza Party is quite an interesting account by Smith about his struggles to write Bone in a [...]


    6. This collection contains one chapter past Bone s mega collection, an essay by Smith about the ride and development of Bone and its role in the birth of the graphic novel, and a few chapters about where Bone came from and its place in literary evolution.I loved the chapter It was fun to be reminded of the Bone brothers and their personalities and see again how their tempers and personalities get them into trouble and how they seem to get out of it in a completely unexpected and humorous way.I als [...]


    7. Bone Coda I had no idea what this book was when I placed it on hold I just saw another hold copy and knew I needed to check it out since I m reading my way through Bone this month If you re looking for information on comic book publishing history and how Bone fits into that then this book is for you I wasn t really feeling it, so I stopped reading after Jeff Smith s part the end of Part I It is interesting how much comics have changed in the last 25 years I did enjoy the comic at the beginning [...]


    8. This volume was surprising, as only a small portion was an actual story concerning the Bone cousins Some time after leaving the Valley, Fone Bone, Phoney Bone, Smiley Bone, and Bartleby the Baby Rat Creature run into a giant vulture, and things get crazy Included in the volume is a behind the scenes essay by Jeff Smith, titled A Moveable Pizza Party describing how the series came about and its place in the rise of the graphic novel as art form and literature of the nineties A second essay by Ste [...]


    9. The short coda story was cute and the kiddo loved it, so worth it right there But, if you are expecting this to be a full trade, its not Only about a third of the pages is a traditional comic Personally, I loved the added history from the creator and academic look the BONE from the other contributor.


    10. I enjoyed Smith s new Bone short story and his memoir about Bone s creation and history But beware Half the book is padded out with a tedious, amateurish, redundant, and overly worshipful and aggrandizing companion written by some random other guy His half of the book is 1 star, but I m weighting my final rating heavily in Smith s favor.


    11. There was a lot of rehash summary in this book, which was redundant for me as I had just finished the series The insights into Smith s history, inspirations, etc were interesting though, as was the history of the creation of the graphic novel art form.


    12. What a wonderful little ancillary adventure for the Bones to go on just after the close of the real story nothing changes, the characters end up exactly where they started, but that was kind of the point no growth is necessary, the story is over, and this is simply a coda.



    13. Was disappointed, believed the comic would be longer, but instead it s filled with documentary stuff from the Bone development.


    14. Ich erinnere mich noch gut im Sommer 1995, als ich im Zuge des Zivildienst mit der Rettung im Rahmen eines Krankentransports in Amstetten war Auf dem R ckweg zur Dienststelle sind wir noch schnell bei einem McDonald s vor der Autobahnauffahrt stehen geblieben und dort eingekehrt Die hatten dort eines ihrer selbstproduzierten Werbebl ttern, das waren oft schlechtproduzierte manchmal kopierte Hefte Beim Durchbl ttern, insbesondere au der letzten Seite war eine Information ber ein neues Comic, welc [...]


    15. I could never justify my love for this series in terms of a review, seriously, just read it BONE is a piece of art that I will carry with me for the rest of my life, I read the series first a few years ago, have read endless books since then and re read bone a million and one times and I honestly believe I will never find anything so enchanting in my whole life.In terms of bone coda, I cried my eyes out when I finished it The characterisation of the bone cousins makes it hard for me to ever acce [...]


    16. This was my first read in the Bone series It seems to be geared towards people who are already into the series.


    17. The new material from Jeff Smith that is ostensibly the reason this thing exists is by no means essential, and anyone whose last memory of Bone is the high fantasy that closed out the series will probably be sorely disappointed by the results, but it s highly enjoyable all the same and characteristic of the Bone cousins, who were always the heart of the story Included is a lot of bonus material to fill out the release, scholarly articles that explore Bone s history, impact, and storytelling, plu [...]


    18. This is a fun little Bone adventure as a way of celebrating 25 years As the back cover states, the adventure is completely superfluous , but it s a great reminder of how entertaining the Bone cousins are if you haven t revisited the story recently.The rest of the book is taken up with text Jeff Smith s own reminiscences over the time he spent working on Bone, and A Bone Companion Both provide an interesting look at comics self publishing and Bone s place in that field in the 90s, when it looked [...]


    19. After growing up having the BONE series as my favorite book and still I until this day when I saw this book I got it right away The book overall is not bad, although I feel like there is still not enough closure with the BONE characters yet We see them lost in the desert, lost trying to find their way home When they fall off a cliff and are forced to fight off a giant vulture But that s about it You do get laughs and that s probably about it, the story doesn t change and nothing is really added [...]


    20. Bone and I have a very complex relationship I started reading him as a child, in the Disney Adventures magazine A serious girlfriend had a large plushie of Fone Bone, and we all started reading it together But when she broke up with me, I had about 800 pages of the original book left I finished it, and the journey taken by the Bones and Thorn will always be a special one because it s a journey I took with them I felt every joy, every heartache, every thrill because I chose to finish the journey [...]


    21. First and foremost it should be stated that the comic only covers about a third of this book It s a good little story, a fitting epilogue that features the Bone cousins on their way home from the Valley It doesn t have any of the epic fantasy trademarks from the original story, but instead focuses on the personal dynamics of the cousins, with a dash of humor and adventure More than anything, it s just nice to see Smith working with these characters again.The rest of the material, a series of ess [...]


    22. Oh How I missed the Bone cousins If you have read the original series, you will find much to love here Fone Bone, Phoney Bone, Smiley Bone and Bartleby are back and it is almost as if they had never left This little adventure left me lusting for The humor was still spot on The characterizations were tight The linework was, as always, amazing.This is not a book meant as an introduction to the world of Bone The comic portion does not give any real spoilers beyond mentioning some of the characters [...]


    23. The new story is nice and fun, but a bit short, and Well It just adds nothing to what was already told.The second part, which is interviews, background info, etc, is stuff I had mostly read before, and though it s good to have it physically instead of online, I wasn t exactly blown away by it.To top it all off, the entire book is in black and white I know Bone was published like that originally, but I got to know the series through the 9 volume colored series This one just doesn t really fit in [...]


    24. It s hard for me to put a rating on this I love the Bone series so much, and having a little bit from Jeff Smith is a treat I read the author notes and Bone companion bits first in order to save the comic for the end The author notes were interesting, the Bone companion pieces varied from interesting to a rather dry recitation of the storyline or the original comic series The new Bone piece, Coda, was fittingly titled a little ending similar to the previous pass through, but slightly different [...]


    25. BONE is my favorite comic book graphic novel whatever you want to call it I have the One Volume Edition in its almost 1500 page glory, and have read it at least 3 times So, I was a shoe in to get this 25th year special with a new BONE chapter The new chapter, while it was as the cover states completely superfluous, was exactly right and fun Something nice and nostalgic The book also contained two other pieces One was an article from Smith about the history of BONE The other was an academic artic [...]


    26. I wish this coda were a little longer it s really just a vignette, so it has basically given just enough to make you want I ll probably reread the series now.I can see how some people would be disappointed I was too, at first, but it was so nice to see the Bones and Bartleby again that I m okay with it Smith s blurb saying it s completely superfluous is correct it s short, sweet, and fun around 45 pages Also included there s a section written by Smith, A Moveable Pizza Party and Weiner s Bone C [...]


    27. 3.5 starsThe new story is exactly what the title claims a coda to the main story and nothing Nice to see Smith revisit these characters and their comedic interaction as well as Smith s own comic timing His essay reminiscing about BONE in the context of the comics scene and industry is a nice addition, as is the now legitmized BONE COMPENDIUM.Not essential for readers who are satisfied with the original closure of the series, but a nice addition for the longtime completest.


    28. The actual comic is very short, about 40 pages, and is fine but not really spectacular It s followed by an essay by Jeff Smith about his making Bone, which was pretty neat Then a boring companion to Bone, and a mildly interesting interview with Smith which might be interesting if 90% of its content wasn t already covered in Smith s essay 50 pages earlier.All in all, I guess it d be worth picking up if you REALLY like Bone, but it s really nothing special.


    29. The new comic portion of this is totally fine It s advertised as superfluous and that is exactly what it is That said, it s still a nice little Bone story The essay by Jeff Smith is alright and the Bone companion section would be good for young kids looking to do a research project or something Overall, not for me, but not terrible.
