Bone: Rock Jaw, Master of the Eastern Border: 09/09/10

By Volume 3 of Bone, Eyes of the Storm, I knew I wanted to finish reading the entire series. I grabbed every volume I had read yet from my local library and proceeded to read them. Unfortunately what I didn't realize was that Volumes 5 and 9 were missing. In fact, my local library doesn't have those two volumes. So I had to put them on hold and read them out of order from the rest of the series.

In Volume 5, the Bone cousins are separated from the group. They've befriended a rat creature pup whom Smiley has named Bartleby. Along the way they meet up with Rock Jaw, an enormous mountain lion who knows the history of the valley. He's basically the ambassador Kosh of this series and his knowledge of the situation shows that the war isn't as cut and dry as the villagers think.

Rock Jaw was the first volume I read without the full color panels. While I missed the luscious colors at first I did find the black and white kept me more focused on the plot. I also finally realized that Bone cousins do in fact look like bones. It's only really obvious when they're black and white.

I wish I had been able to read this volume in order but I didn't mind going back to read it when it was finally available.
