Bone Vol. 2: The Great Cow Race
Jeff Smith
$12.99 (Paperback)
**** (out of five)

It could always be said that Bone was a very colourful comic series, but this book takes the Great Cow Race to new heights.
The second colourized edition of Bone, released through Scholastic’s Graphix imprint, gives new depths to what is the most fan-friendly and funny volume of the Bone adventures.
The plot, which revolves around Phoney Bone’s plot to rig the betting on the annual cow race (against the rugged Gran’ma Ben), is riotous in black and white, but gains new depths with a glorious canvas of colours on it.
Those who poo-pooed the idea of dressing up this black-and-white classic should really take a look — it’s an eye opener.
