Jeff Smith’s Bone Coming to Netflix

This is a harder one to track down, but if you own a copy, you could be able to sell this one for a good profit. Jeff Smith’s comic, Bone, is in the works at Netflix for an animated series.

Most of the key characters first appeared in the now classic Bone #1.

Deadline.com had the scoop.

Netflix has secured the rights to Jeff Smith’s Bone, the whimsical fantasy epic that’s widely viewed as one of the Holy Grail properties among unadapted comic book classics. Netflix will develop the Bone shelf of international bestsellers as an animated kids series.

The writer, artist, and creator of Bone had an animated reaction to the Netflix acquisition and its ambitions.

“I’ve waited a long time for this,” Smith said. “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.”
