Jeff Smith Reveals New Info. about New Bone Books
Straight from the source (i.e. Jeff Smith's blog), some more info. about the new Bone books from Jeff Smith:
"Tall Tales...is a major repackaging of a book I did with Tom Snigoski a few years ago called Stupid, Stupid Rat-Tails."
"BONE: Quest for the Spark is slightly different kind of thing. It is not a comic; it’s a novel. A series of three novels written by Tom Snigoski that follow a new generation of Bone characters into the Valley."
I'm not sure what to think of this just yet. While I've seen a couple of copies of Stupid, Stupid Rat-Tails floating around comic shops (in fact, for collectionists, it's still available) here, it'll be nice for these stories to see the light of day again. As far as the novelizations go, this could be a great opportunity to see how well reluctant readers transition from the comics format to traditional print.
No matter what, any new Jeff Smith work is a cause for celebration!
