It was no accident that Bone was the selected as the first graphic novel for the iPhone. Originally launched in 1991 as a self-published comic book, it was available only on the shelves of specialty stores. Bone quickly gained momentum and became a national phenomenon with a dedicated fan base. Word of mouth, critical acclaim and a string of major awards later propelled Bone to the forefront of the comic book industry.
