Scholastic Celebrates 10 Years of Graphix With Bone Tribute Edition
It will have been 10 years next year since Scholastic started the Graphix comic imprint to publish graphic novels for kids and teens. To celebrate, they have announced a new edition of Bone: Out From Boneville, the first volume in the immensely popular fantasy series by Jeff Smith. That book launched the imprint in February 2005 with its color edition.
Bone: Out From Boneville, The Tribute Edition will be published on February 24, 2015, with two new content items: “a brand-new illustrated poem from creator Jeff Smith plus original Bone tribute art from sixteen additional top artists in the form of mini-comics and full-page artwork. The contributors include major artists working in comics and illustration today, such as Kate Beaton, Jeffrey Brown, Kazu Kibuishi, Dav Pilkey, Raina Telgemeier, and Craig Thompson.” I think that lists indicates just how many creators of a certain generation were influenced by Smith.
