Nice article on the conclusion of the "Bone" and "Cerebus" comic sagas. I've been a big fan of "Bone" since my ex-roommie Matt introduced me to it a few years ago. I have all of the bound collections of the "Bone" comics, since they're much easier to store and keep track of than the comics themselves, and I'm glad to see that the last chapters will be available soon, though of course I'm sorry to see it come to an end. I totally agree with this:

More than any other current comic title, "Bone" deserves -- and could support -- the kind of popular attention that elevated Harry Potter from the rank and file of children's books.

Yep. I'd love to see this adapted as a full-length animated feature, though sadly I know it'd never get the support it needed to justify the expense. Anyway, do yourself a favor and check out "Bone". You'll be glad you did.

I dunno. A lot of pretty obscure comix have been turned into movies in the last decade or so (Tank Girl???) It could happen.
