What's New in Version 1.01
Addresses panel sequence issue.
Well done considering the format.
Bone is alive and bright on the ipod. This is the first chapter and just the beginning of what becomes a very charming fantasy tale with excellent artwork, clever writing, and well thought out story and character development. If you were to purchase the first Bone book in a store, this app is equal to 24 pages. As much as I really enjoyed the app and Bone comic, I can't give it a full 5 star review, because the artwork can't really be displayed in its true form in this format. If you pick up one of the books and compare it to the app, you'll see the developers did a nice job preserving as much as they could, but much of the artwork just can't be captured on the small ipod screen. Aside from that, it's a wonderful introduction to this colorful tale for kids and adults. And I will confess, this one app inspired me to buy all 9 of the Bone books. I hope you enjoy as much as I did!
I love Bone! I have all 9 B/W collections, the One Volume Edition, and a few of the Scholastic color editions too. And now I'm still buying it. Sure does look nice on that bright screen in beautiful color thanks to colorist Steve Hamaker's talents as well as Smith's classic beautiful brushwork. Only the first issue unfortunately, so we haven't met our beautiful protagonist Thorn yet, but it's a great start that the comic is here at all and I sure hope we see more of it. I don't know how we're going to fit all 55 issues all as separate apps on here? Maybe condensing each volume into nine $6 apps would be better? Isn't it called "Out From Boneville" though? Or are we calling this something else?
Fun for all ages!
I work with middle school kids, and a they lot read Bone. I was wondering why? After buying a couple of issues I wondered no more. I was so impressed I've purchased all 11 issues offered through the App store far. Actually the first book didn't impress me that much. But, the more I read, the more I fell in love with the caracters and their story. And I'm normally not a big fan "fantasy", aka Lord of the Rings type of stories. But this is different. Besides the adventure, it has a gental loving humour that I liked. And at the same time there is fun stinging wit too. And it's not totally politically corrrect. In general, it's wonderful!
