The eleventh volume in the immensely popular Bone series, Tall Tales collects previously published material along with an all-new framing sequence that weaves it all together, featuring Smiley, Bartleby, Ring, Bingo and Todd telling the "tall tales" that fill the collection. The largest portion of the book is a now-colored-by-Steve-Hanamaker representing of the out-of-print, B&W collection Stupid, Stupid Rat Tales, which features the adventures of Big Johnson Bone, that was written by Tom Sneigowski and drawn by Bone-creator, Smith. In addition there is a hard-to-find short story that originally appeared in Disney Adventures Magazine. Technically, the story-telling framing sequence takes place after the conclusion of the Bone saga, while the stories that they tell take place before, making them prequels of a sort. This volume will set snugly on the shelf next to the previous ten volumes in the Bone saga, and is sure to be enjoyed by all its fans.
