Bone Volume 09: Crown of Horns 05/20/11
Jeff Smith took a decade to write the Bone series. It took me nine months to read them; I had the advantage of waiting until they were republished with the color artwork. The last book in the original series is Crown of Horns.
Crown of Horns wraps up everything. It also ends in a parallel structure to the first volume, Out from Boneville. After the battle in the kingdom is resolved and the ghost circles vanquished, it's time for the Bone cousins to say goodbye to the people they've been living with.
When I started the series I wasn't very impressed. I liked bits and pieces of Out from Boneville but revisiting familiar locations and themes helped me better appreciate how the story started.
