Earlier this week Bone creator Jeff Smith teased on social media that his next project would be announced at Comic-Con this week, and lo and behold, here it is:
According to a post on Smith’s Boneville website, it looks like we have new Bone material to look forward to — or Smiley Bone material, to be specific. Whether that’s a new comic, a children’s book or something else remains to be seen. All we know is it’ll come from Scholastic/Graphix, which publishes the color Bone collections.
Update: According to the Graphix Twitter feed and the press release, it’s a picture book, and it arrives next summer. Scholastic says it’ll be the first of two picture books featuring Smiley Bone and the Bone cousins.
