The book collecting the entire series of Bone is available for pre-order on Amazon, $27 for 1300 pages is a great deal, but I wonder how well the book will hold together. It probably wouldn’t be a great purchase for a library, I don’t think it would stand up to book drops and repeated circulation. I read a few issues of Bone here and there, but I was starting in the middle and always intended on going back and reading the series from the beginning, so I put in my order for the monster collected edition.

Onion A.V. interview with Smith. I’d forgotten that Smith once threatened to punch Dave Sim in the face, the Salon piece compares the finales of Bone and Cerebus.
