Netflix has secured the rights to Jeff Smith’s award-winning and New York Times best-selling international comic book series, “Bone”, with plans to develop an animated kids series that follows the iconic Bone cousins on an adventure through a vast, uncharted desert and into a mysterious valley filled with wonderful and terrifying creatures. The series has been running since 1991 and is among TIME Magazine’s “Ten Best Graphic Novels of All Time” and winner of more than 40 national and international publishing awards.
I’ve waited a long time for this. Netflix is the perfect home for BONE. Fans of the books know that the story develops chapter by chapter and book by book. An animated series is exactly the way to do this! The team at Netflix understands BONE and is committed to doing something special – this is good news for kids and cartoon lovers all over the world.
