If you love Jeff Smith’s Bone, or if you just have an excellent memory, you may remember when the full-color, one volume, 20th Anniversary Edition of Smith’s most famous work was announced a few months ago. Now we have even more information about the massive tome, particularly that it will come in three different editions.
The standard slipcase hardcover has the entire series, a brand new essay, a cover gallery, a history of the series’ publication, and a lovely slipcase, and will be $150. There will also be a collector’s box set (pictured above), which includes the hardcover, a mini comic of the first issue, a 22k gold coin with Phoney Bone’s image on it, a signed and numbered piece of Bone art, pewter figurines of the three Bones, and a documentary DVD. This will be $350, and will be limited to 2000 copies. Finally, there will be the most limited edition of all: similar to the box set, only this time replacing the print with an original piece of Bone artwork, drawn by Smith and painted by Steve Hamaker.
There will only be 50 of these, and they will sell for $1000. The two box sets will be available in July of this year, and the slipcase will be available in November. Any one would be the perfect gift for your favorite comic lover — or yourself. The best part? For every copy sold, a tree will be planted.
