The book act is vibrant with lots of details to the characters (human and other) as well as they scenery around them.
We got Volumes 1-5 at a comic shop in Albuquerque, just to test the series. Very good series, with mixtures of epic fantasy and humor. In this volume, most of the characters head for Old Man's Cave, both as a refuge from the rat creatures and to learn the origins of the old kingdom and the Lord of the Locusts. Phoney is ultimately captured by the Hooded One, and the revelation of who this sinister character is disturbing. Things are getting more grim in the storytelling, but there's still some humor to spice things up, such as the revelation of the reason Phoney is supposed to be a threat to the forces of the Lord of the Locusts. Definitely take the adventure with these characters!
My 7 year old boy LOVED all the Bone graphic novels. He read each book in one sitting. He was absolutely engrossed. He wrote about the series multiple times at school during his writing assignments. He says it's his favorite series.
If you've gotten this far, you know what a kick the Bone series is. Strong, stylish and effective graphics (think Alex Toth) merges with writing that mixes grand epic fantasy with strong character work and riotous slapstick humor. What you need to know is that volume six carries more than its weight in the saga-- a whole raft of mysteries are cleared up here including yet more info about the royal family, the hooded bad guy, and the search for the one who bears the star. It's a masterpiece of plotting-- nothing is expected and yet Smith doesn't pull any of his solutions out of left field. Buy this (and any of the others you're missing), plunk down in a comfy chair, and read straight through all six!
I can't tell you how many people I have recommended Bone to. Every time I am in a comic book store and see a mother and a youngster looking for something to break into in the comic scene. The first thing that comes to mind is Bone. It's a great all ages book, it's well written and your kids will love it. With all the "adult" stuff out there... you really need to be cautious what your children are reading. Bone is quality and safe. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
