Bone is an independently published American comic book series, written and illustrated by Jeff Smith, originally serialized in 55 irregularly released issues from 1991 to 2004.
Smith's black-and-white drawings were inspired by animated cartoons and comic strips, are singularly characterized by a mixture of both light-hearted comedy and dark fantasy thriller. The author, Jeff Smith, describes the comics as "a fish-out-of-water story. There are three modern characters, who happen to be cartoons in the mold of Donald Duck or Bugs Bunny, who get lost in a fairy-tale valley. They spend a year there and make friends and enemies and get caught up in the trials and tribulations of the valley and even a war." The series was published bimonthly with some delays from June 1991 to June 2004. The series was self-published by Smith's Cartoon Books for issues No. 1 to No. 19, by Image Comics from issues No. 20 to No. 28, and back to Cartoon Books for issues No. 29 to No. 55.
Bone has received numerous awards, among them ten Eisner Awards and eleven Harvey Awards.In October 2019, Netflix announced the production of an upcoming Bone animated series.
