The multi-award-winning Bone comic book series is being adapted into an animated series for Netflix with, writer and illustrator, Jeff Smith leading the creative team.
Originally published between 1991 and 2004, Bone focuses on Fone, Phoney, and Smiley Bone, three cartoonish cousins that have to leave their home town of Boneville and end up in the mysterious fantasy lands of the Valley, where adventures abound. It’s sort of like a comedic Lord of the Rings.
The Netflix series will be child-friendly and Smith appears to be highly optimistic about the project.
I’ve waited a long time for this. Netflix is the perfect home for Bone. Fans of the books know that the story develops chapter by chapter and book by book. An animated series is exactly the way to do this! The team at Netflix understands Bone and is committed to doing something special — this is good news for kids and cartoon lovers all over the world.
