Bone concerns three cousins - Fone, Phoney & Smiley Bone - recent exiles from Boneville who wander into a valley which propels them into an epic fantasy adventure. Although the Bones are drawn in a cartoonish style similar to Carl Barks or Walt Kelly, the human characters are depicted in a more realistic style, which makes for interesting visuals.
But although Bone has plenty of laughs - notably a scene where Phoney was captured which led to a visual that made me laugh so hard I had to stop reading - it takes the epic storyline fairly seriously. The lead antagonist is an impressive visual, with the speech balloons trailing out from her hood like a trail of vapor:
Overall, Bone was engaging fantasy adventure, so much so that its 1300 pages breeze by all too quickly.
