paw comments: Bone is amazing and well worth tracking down if you haven't read it.
I still have the original run. It was the only book other than Preacher that I faithfully read around that time. I also have the original color reprints.
Waiting for the issues to get released was a pain in the ass and why I dropped TWD in the 30's and picked it back up in the 50's. Going to the comic shop to buy one book that didn't get shipped again kills the excitement for me, and that happened too often with Bone. Once Kirkman started doing the same, my Bone scars resurfaced and I didn't want to do that all over again.
Didn't Jeff Smith come to comics from animation? I don't want the Kung Fu panda guy directing this at all.
