Full-color <i>Bone One Volume Edition</i> coming in 2011

Is it okay to start making my Christmas wish list for next year?

2011 is the 20th anniversary of the publication of Bone #1, the comic that kicked off a Jeff Smith’s epic tale and launched his successful career. To celebrate, Smith announced today that a full-color version of the Bone One Volume Edition is coming next year.

“The technology has finally caught up!” Smith posted on the Bone site. “Through a combination of sewing and glue, we can make a nearly 1400 page color One Volume Edition that lays flat when open!”

The Bone One Volume Edition, previously only been available in black and white, collects the entire Bone comic series. Scholastic, meanwhile, has been publishing color collections of the story over the last few years. With a trio of Bone films on the horizon. the timing for this couldn’t be better.
