Week in Comics
by Jeremy Kahn
The New York Times bestsellers lists are pretty much the same old lists compiled of the same old books from previous weeks. Scattered in a few places though are some new titles sure to grab some attention. For starters, in the paperback graphic books list at number eight is Bone: Quest For the Spark. Bone: Quest for the Spark is not quite a sequel but stays in the same universe created by Jeff Smith in his now famous Bone series. Unlike his Bone series this book starts a whole new series that tells of a new casts’ adventure in a novel form instead of a comic book. The novel itself is written by Tom Sniegoski with Jeff Smith providing illustrations (about 20 full bleed color illustrations in all).
