BONE – Book Two: The Great Cow Race – Jeff Smith

Bone 02Despite this following directly on from the last there is a marked difference. This book follows the cow race and is played almost entirely for laughs. Gone is the tingling mystery of the opening volume as we spend all our time in the safety of the fair.

The art is consistently good with a commanding use of black and white and all the established elements from the first work are here. The characters are well designed and even the bulky, shaggy monsters can emote with great versatility and flair.

It is quite a change of pace and despite the bigger plot getting a mention this is definitely the comedic interlude. Let’s hope we are back on track next time.

Thumbs Up!
