The BONE: One Volume Edition is back in print and will be in stores this week. However, the books are completely sold out at Diamond, which is the exclusive distributor of this title.

Jeff Smith, the cartoonist of BONE and co-owner of publisher Cartoon Books said, " We were surprised to get a call from Jim Kuhoric of Diamond Comic Distributors telling us that they shipped the entire print run of 20,000 copies out to stores this week. The Diamond warehouse is empty! Plans are being made to go back to press immediately."

This current printing of the BONE: One Volume Edition has a new cover and is technically the seventh printing of the 1300 page graphic novel. It retails for $39.95US.

Cartoon Books debuted the BONE: OVE in 2004 at the San Diego Comic-Con International and went out of print a year later to make way for the new color editions being put out by Bone's new publisher Graphix, an imprint of Scholastic Books, Inc.

Citing their belief that the huge success of the color books proved that there would be room for more than one version in the marketplace, a rare agreement was made earlier this Spring between Cartoon Books and Graphix/Scholastic allowing the return of the original black & white compendium.
