    So much of a series hangs on the ending In many ways, it doesn t matter how good a series is if the ending doesn t fit properly This is one of the things that makes Sandman such a stand out success Not just that it has an ending Not just that the ending is good But that it has an ending that is as near to perfect as an ending can be An ending that you read and think, Oh yes Of course And even if you wish it might have gone a little different, you know deep in your heart it had to b So much of a series hangs on the ending In many ways, it doesn t matter how good a series is if the ending doesn t fit properly This is one of the things that makes Sandman such a stand out success Not just that it has an ending Not just that the ending is good But that it has an ending that is as near to perfect as an ending can be An ending that you read and think, Oh yes Of course And even if you wish it might have gone a little different, you know deep in your heart it had to be that way If you want an example of the other sort of ending, just think about the Matrix So let me say This series has a good ending An ending you remember An ending that ties things up well, but not too tightly An ending you might wish were slightly different, but that you know deep in your heart is right

    What a ride that was I did not except to love this series as much as I did, and be sad that it ended, as much as I am.The finale was just as epic as i excepted It wrapped things up perfectly And the ending was so bittersweet, but when I think about it, I wouldn t change a thing.In conclusion, amazing series, and I would recommend it to anyone who is into graphic novels.

    This is a review of all nine volumes of Bone.I m not as wild about this series as some people seem to be.While the artwork is spectacular, the story takes forever to arrive at what I thought was a rather unsatisfying conclusion Too many of the books featured the main characters being chased over hill and dale by one manner of large scary creature or another I know that sometimes the journey isimportant than the destination, but to methey just kept wagon training So three stars from m This is a review of all nine volumes of Bone.I m not as wild about this series as some people seem to be.While the artwork is spectacular, the story takes forever to arrive at what I thought was a rather unsatisfying conclusion Too many of the books featured the main characters being chased over hill and dale by one manner of large scary creature or another I know that sometimes the journey isimportant than the destination, but to methey just kept wagon training So three stars from me I ll add another half star for the feisty old lady who stole the show, and another half for the fact that the stories were engaging enough that my youngest son, aka The Boy Who Hates to Read, eagerly devoured every book in the series

    This is a series that grew tremendously from the first volume At first, it felt like a very light, jokey comic, and I wasn t really into it But as the story went on, it became much deeper and a good bit darker By the end of this volume, this was an epic fantasy that can rightfully draw comparisons to Lord of the Rings It was pretty cool to see it grow, and so naturally.

    When I began this series, I tried to write a review of each volume I had to give that up because the beginning of the series is like a completely different animal than the end and I was feeling frustrated, but now that I ve really finished, I feel I have to say something.I m not a traditional comic reader I preferadult titles, and especially those that have a beginning , middle and end Those that can be collected and you don t need to search out titles from the 30s to get the right feel When I began this series, I tried to write a review of each volume I had to give that up because the beginning of the series is like a completely different animal than the end and I was feeling frustrated, but now that I ve really finished, I feel I have to say something.I m not a traditional comic reader I preferadult titles, and especially those that have a beginning , middle and end Those that can be collected and you don t need to search out titles from the 30s to get the right feel for the characters This seemed right up my alley Authors I really enjoy rave about it, my sons love it, all nice volumes were at hand, win win I am so pleased to have the entire series available before I began I know myself If I had started with volume one and had to wait to buy or receive volume two, I would not have waited I finished volume two and was unsure if I should bother with three, but am so, so glad I did How can I say that, and still not be sure how to review Because if I had read these as published, I would never, ever have finished This story doesn t evolve so much as become something else entirely.I can only guess that those reading this from the beginning that fell in love must have begun as early teenagers and aged with the series That may be a great system of publishing, I mean, look at Harry Potter, but with Potter the story was complex enough to begin with, it was the darkness and reality that ramped up as the series progressed Here, the story goes from one seemingly written for five year olds to one I wouldn t want a child reading At least not a young child.Overall, I enjoyed the tale of the Bones, Thorn and Gran ma Ben, but only because I could race through it I definitely would not have enjoyed this doled out over years

    Since this is the last volume, this is a review of the series overall I really enjoyed it It was funny and full of excitement, employing just enough fantasy tropes to keep the story on the track, but with enough originality, humor, and flair to be its own thing The characters are constructed slowly, over the course of storylines, so that by the time the ending comes, you re wholly invested in what s happening As such, Bone is greater than the sum of its parts, and as a cohesive comic book, i Since this is the last volume, this is a review of the series overall I really enjoyed it It was funny and full of excitement, employing just enough fantasy tropes to keep the story on the track, but with enough originality, humor, and flair to be its own thing The characters are constructed slowly, over the course of storylines, so that by the time the ending comes, you re wholly invested in what s happening As such, Bone is greater than the sum of its parts, and as a cohesive comic book, it doesn t get muchengaging

    Awww, the ending wasn t super special happy Serious sniffles for Lucius.It s kind of funny Smith really did set it up so that there didn t appear to be a win win situation I was really hoping the Bone cousins wouldn t split up, but also that Fone Bone wouldn t have to leave Thorn, but also that Phoney and Smiley would be happy though I think Smiley would be happy anywhere It seemedobvious to have them stay Thorn HAS to, and Fone Bone is in love with her, whereas nobody HAS to go ba Awww, the ending wasn t super special happy Serious sniffles for Lucius.It s kind of funny Smith really did set it up so that there didn t appear to be a win win situation I was really hoping the Bone cousins wouldn t split up, but also that Fone Bone wouldn t have to leave Thorn, but also that Phoney and Smiley would be happy though I think Smiley would be happy anywhere It seemedobvious to have them stay Thorn HAS to, and Fone Bone is in love with her, whereas nobody HAS to go back to Boneville indeed, how do we know they won t just get chased out again I was especially surprised that they still left after Smiley revealed that they didn t have the treasure, which I d assumed was Phoney s ticket to re acceptance in Boneville That would have been an ideal moment for them to turn around, but they don t.Smith must have had this ending planned way in advance, or something, because one of the early comics I got back in the 90s had, as a bonus chapter, the episode at the end with the winter solstice celebration I guess he could have made it up as an extra, then decided it fit well here .Anyway, if I had to choose, I d have the Bone cousins stay together like they do rather than Fone Bone and Thorn It s nice, for once, to have the protagonist stick with the family that s always loved him and will always be there for him over the romantic interest, who proooobably will always love him because Their Love Is Legend, but it isn t the same Glad Bartleby stays with them, too.Would have liked for Grandma Ben and Lucius to live happily ever after, but I guess you can t have everything.I do love how the dragons join the fight in the end and the big red dragon s role, saving Fone Bone and Thorn And I like Rock Jaw s cameo.Random note how come Kingdok can suddenly speak again His whole tongue was gone Oh well

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here My God, what a let down Looking at the reviews of this book, I must be the only one who thought the final battle and the ending were awful There s so much to dig into, but mostly 1 Lucius dies without any real explanation There were some questions about his loyalty that were never truly addressed Perhaps the prequel will explore them And did anyone else notice that his crutches were magically gone in the final battle 2 The entire final battle with Briar was anticlimactic and left a lot My God, what a let down Looking at the reviews of this book, I must be the only one who thought the final battle and the ending were awful There s so much to dig into, but mostly 1 Lucius dies without any real explanation There were some questions about his loyalty that were never truly addressed Perhaps the prequel will explore them And did anyone else notice that his crutches were magically gone in the final battle 2 The entire final battle with Briar was anticlimactic and left a lot to be desired 3 The Crown of Horns really, all it takes is one touch to destroy Briar and the Locust After the story has spent NINE volumes creating twists and turns for Bone and Thorn It was such a cop out in my opinion I was expecting an epic final battle Also, if Briar knew that Fone and Thorn were going to the Crown of Horns, and she knew that Gran ma and Phoney were trying to intercept her, then why didn t she know that Lucius and his army were attacking her from the rear How convenient 3 We never actually saw the Locust We see Mim for a quick moment, but the dragons presumably kill her which is unexplained because it states in an earlier issue that they re too afraid to face their queen It didn t make sense 4 Phoney Bone s transformation was thin at best I didn t buy that simply running away to gettroops constituted a change in his character Sure, he could have gone back to Boneville, but he wouldn t have gone anywhere without his cousins I would have liked to seegrowth with him Smiley grows a lot throughout the story and so does Fone 5 The gruesome violence against Thorn was unsettling and borderline gratuitous.6 There was no treatment at all between the forming relationship between Fone and Thorn I was expecting a kiss, a confession of feelingssomething Instead, it felt like the growing emotions in the previous issues were just ignored I don t read much romance, but now I understand why romance readers get so mad when there s not a happy romantic ending Gah All in all, I loved the series This is probably one of the best graphic novel series I ve ever read, but it s also got the worst ending out of any series I ve ever read, and that s saying a lot I was expecting so much

    Brilliant series It came recommended from a friend, and in all honesty I thought I d at best like it, at worst have to hedge about hating it, but it was genuinely one of the most enjoyable things I ve read since the beginning of this term.To begin with, the Bones are perfect And hilarious Like, guffaw out loud in the middle of class hilarious not the best idea, really Smiley is so adorable I want to adopt him, Fone Bone grows on you despite his righteousness, and even annoying Phoney Bone Brilliant series It came recommended from a friend, and in all honesty I thought I d at best like it, at worst have to hedge about hating it, but it was genuinely one of the most enjoyable things I ve read since the beginning of this term.To begin with, the Bones are perfect And hilarious Like, guffaw out loud in the middle of class hilarious not the best idea, really Smiley is so adorable I want to adopt him, Fone Bone grows on you despite his righteousness, and even annoying Phoney Bone is cute when it comes to taking care if his cousins The two stupid rats are my favorite characters, and I would kill for a Bartleby, I really would Lucious is stereotypically lovable with his gruff ways, and Grandma Ben is badass The only one I didn t like much was Thorn when she was in her whiny stage It got a bit annoying Also the ending was a bit anticlimatic for me, a bit Anyway It was quite well drawn, too, and very easy to read, unlike the Sandman which took me a while Definitely recommended, if you re looking for a good epic graphic novel series
