Netflix has acquired the rights to Jeff Smith’s Bone and will develop an animated series based on the series. Bone was first published in 1991 and ran for 55 issues until 2004. It earned 10 Eisner Awards and 11 Harvey Awards throughout its run.
The series centers on the Bone cousins, bald cartoon characters. In the opening pages of “Out from Boneville” the three Bone cousins, an avaricious and greedy Phoncible P. “Phoney” Bone, a goofy cigar-smoking Smiley Bone, and an everyman character Fone Bone, have been run out of their hometown of Boneville after Phoney’s campaign for mayor went awry.
No release date has been announced.
