Full-color Bone One Volume Edition coming in 2011

BONE: 20th Anniversary Full Color One Volume Edition

Is it okay to start making my Christmas wish list for next year?

2011 is the 20th anniversary of the publication of Bone #1, the comic that kicked off a Jeff Smith’s epic tale and launched his successful career. To celebrate, Smith announced today that a full-color version of the Bone One Volume Edition is coming next year.

“The technology has finally caught up!” Smith posted on the Bone site. “Through a combination of sewing and glue, we can make a nearly 1400 page color One Volume Edition that lays flat when open!”

The Bone One Volume Edition, previously only been available in black and white, collects the entire Bone comic series. Scholastic, meanwhile, has been publishing color collections of the story over the last few years. With a trio of Bone films on the horizon. the timing for this couldn’t be better.



Aaaaaaaah! That is a gorgeous looking book.

dizammnn. just what I’ve been waiting for.

I’ve been trying to decide how to buy this series, because I’ve never read it, but it looks great. I think I’ll wait a little longer for this edition.

I’m seriously debating whether or not I’ll buy this, even though I already own the B&W One Volume Edition.

I already have the B&W one but I’m getting this too. Seriously.

What Arnaud said.

Wow. I gave away my copy of Bone to a wide-eyed 12-year-old last year and had planned to pick up the One Volume again or get into the Scholastic reprints. But this will do just fine. So great that this is coming!

Usually I don’t re-buy collections I already own, but the color version of Bone is really nice and the thought of a one-volume edition that actually lays flat when open is too much to pass up.

This looks amazing! Even though I already have the single books, the one volume edition sounds awesome.

I really want this but at $350 I say F**k that! We have all the scholastic books and I think $350 is way too much for a HC One book.
