Supercontext: Bone, Volume 1: Out From Boneville

This independent comedy/fantasy comic book series wasn’t intended to be for kids necessarily, but because of how savvily Jeff Smith marketed his self-publishing business, it became a hit for all-ages. We discuss Bone‘s impact on the library market, as well as its struggles with female representation and censorship.
