Rose Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The hit comic book mini-series Rose now comes to you in a single handsome package with a brand-new cover! Released over a yearlong period to rave reviews (and an Eisner nomination for best painter), the Bone prequel by Jeff Smith and Charles Vess can now be read as it was originally intended — as one massive epic.

In the old days, when Bone's Gran'ma Ben was a teenager, a terrifying dragon laid siege to the small towns of the Northern Valley. Unknown to Princess Rose (young Gran'ma Ben), the strange dragon is actually the minion of the Ancient Enemy called the Lord of the Locust. Rose seeks the counsel of her advisor, who tells the young princess how to destroy the dragon — but at a terrible cost.

About the Author

Born and raised in the American Midwest, Jeff Smith learned about cartooning from comic strips, comic books, and watching animated shorts on TV. While most adults consider cartoons to be children's fare, Smith discovered early on that no topic of human experience — from the introspection of Peanuts or the politics of Doonesbury to the lyricism of Pogo — was beyond the wonderful world of comics. After four years of drawing comic strips for Ohio State's student newspaper starting in 1982, Smith co-founded the Character Builders animation studio in 1986. Then, in 1991, he launched the comic book Bone. Currently printed in thirteen languages around the world, Bone received the 1998 Eisner Award for Best Writer/Artist — Humor, as well as the 1998 Harvey Award for Best Cartoonist, Italy's Yellow Kid Award for Best Author, Spain's Premios Expocomic for Best Foreign Comics, and Finland's Lempi International for Best International Cartoonist.

Charles Vess was born in 1951 in Lynchburg, Virginia and has been drawing since he could hold a crayon. He graduated with a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, and moved to New York City in 1976. His award-winning work has graced the pages of numerous comic book publishers, and has been featured in several gallery and museum exhibitions across the nation, including the first major exhibition of Science Fiction and Fantasy Art (New Britain Museum of American Art, 1980). In 1991, Charles shared the prestigious World Fantasy Award for Best Short Story with Neil Gaiman for their collaboration on Sandman no. 19 (DC Comics) — the first and only time a comic book has held this honor. In the summer of 1997, Charles won the The Will Eisner Comic Industry Award for best penciler/inker for his work on The Book of Ballads and Sagas (which he self-publishes through his own Green Man Press) as well as Sandman no. 75. In 1999 he was awarded the World Fantasy Award for best artist for his work on Stardust.
