        Will Eisner was a comic strip artist during the 40s and 50s, know mostly for The Spirit and A Contract with God.
        The Eisner Award is named in his honor because his comics were pretty revolutionary in their respective times.

      Bone is remembered by its fans fondly.
      It would be a household name if Fone Bone had ended up with Thorn. You can talk all you want about that being unrealistic, but in the end it was a comic that went on for 12+ years about a heroic little dude that fell for a girl - a girl that ended up every bit as awesome as he'd assumed when they first met - and after they overcome incredible odds he apparently at some point offscreen sat down with her and went "I've outgrown my love for you, let's be two lonely adults and go our separate ways."
      As unimpressive endings go, that one's a corker.

        It was one of those "Gotta stick to this ending page because it was sketched out at the start of the run" situations.

        The fact that Fone Bone decided he no longer loved Thorn IN THE UNSHOWN PERIOD OF A TIME SKIP galls me to this day.
        It'd be like writing a mystery story and then having the Detective's big "here's who did it and why" reveal happen offscreen.

      I don't think I can watch this
      There was a cool fan made voiced motion comic of a PK story and when the guy doing Donald finally spoke my brain seized up. I realized I didn't really know WHAT I thought he should sound like, only that what I was hearing was wrong
      Some comics you spend enough time with, having just the vague semi-voice you hear inside your head, and anything else sounds off

      Fone Bone sounds like John Fiedler, which is the right idea, but too old. Gilbert Gottfried is dead so there's no one to cast as Phoney.

      Overall I think those voices need to be way more cartoony. Right now they sound like the Watchmen motion comic where the one guy did all the voices himself.

        That's because Dave Sims went to Jeff Smith's house to rant and espouse his beliefs about women in front of the latter's wife, leading to Smith kicking him out of the house.

            It was quite the gossip point back in the day. There was even a lot of heresay on Ye Olde Internet about tough talk between the two, with the possibility that they'd face each other in a boxing match. Obviously that never went anywhere, and I don't know if any sort of conversations like that actually happened or if it was just online bystanders getting worked up and creating their own narrative of events.

                It's actually impressive how many artists, writers, etc. lost their goddamned heads during this guy's presidency. There is something so raw about the hate the orange guy caused in these circles. Obviously something psychological, although I can't quite put my finger on what exactly.
                Also, thanks, OP, you awoke some distant memories in me. Must have read this one for the first time 10 years ago. One of the best american comics I have ever read, and very probably my favourite. For the people saying the ending is kinda lackluster, it did seem so to me when I read it, but thinking back on it now(I should reread it, yes), it might have been on purpose.

      It's a kid's comic, anon. Smith made a ton of money through the scholastic licensing deal and that's how most of these were read.
      Kids books in general get less scrutiny from censorship(in general, not to say there aren't plenty attempts at banning kid's books). Hell I remember reading Hatchet in fifth grade and being shocked at the detail of the dead pilot's head underwater being picked clean by fish. That was more visceral than even R rated movies I had seen

    Before he did Bone Jeff Smith wrote a strip for his collage newspaper featuring many of the ideas that would become Bone. It's getting a collected release in a few months. I think some kick starter backers already got their. I wish I knew. I probably would have backed.
