The Long Run takes place outside of our normal continuity of episodes, and features table discussion of an entire work or long selection of a series.

In this episode of The Long Run??we talk about??Bone, by Jeff Smith. Published independently between 1991 and 2004, Bone follows??the three Bone cousins???cartoon character-like people exiled from the town??Boneville (in the same sense that Donald Duck is from Duckburg)???who,??after crossing a vast desert, find themselves trapped in a magical valley filled with monsters, dragons, lost princesses, and ancient prophesies.

The series is filled with high-stakes adventure, light-hearted humor, and??it’s fair share of loss and sorrow. It’s an amazing comic for all ages, and is a particularly good introduction to the world of comics for younger readers who have never read a comic before.

On the next episode of The??Long Run??we will be reading??Doom Patrol, by Grant Morrison.

Our hosts on this episode are Tobiah Panshin,??Joe Preti, Audrey Preti, and Cade Reynolds.
