‘Bone’: Netflix Will Animate Jeff Smith’s Acclaimed Comic Book Epic

The story follows the Bone cousins — the intrepid Fone Bone, the scheming Phoney Bone, and the affable Smiley Bone — on their adventures through a vast, uncharted desert that gives way to a mysterious valley filled with wonderful and terrifying creatures. The trio look like they might be made of marshmallow, while their adventures draw on high-pedigree influences: J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, Jiminy Cricket, Walt Kelly’s Pogo, Charles Schulz’s Peanuts, and Carl Barks’ sublime Disney work with Donald Duck and his relatives. – Geoff Boucher, Deadline Hollywood » https://ift.tt/2pmVQZB [Photo: Bone Comics, Out From Boneville]
