“I’ve waited a long time for this. Netflix is the perfect home for Bone. Fans of the books know that the story develops chapter by chapter and book by book. An animated series is exactly the way to do this! The team at Netflix understands Bone and is committed to doing something special — this is good news for kids and cartoon lovers all over the world,” said Smith, who will oversee the animated series.

Bone was originally published in 1991 and ran until 2004, with Smith publishing 55 issues. The series remains one of the most celebrated comics and has received 10 Eisner Awards in addition to 11 Harvey Awards. Smith’s Bone series, which he began working on when he was 10, is considered a pioneer in comics publishing for kids. It even served as the launch title for Scholastic’s Graphix Books in 2005.
