Descriere: At the age of nine, Jeff Smith dreamt up a cute, little character he named Fone Bone. More than a decade later, Bone became an overnight success, rocketing Smith to a level few independent cartoonists achieve. Published world-wide and winner of countless awards, Bone would seemingly be a career unto itself, but Jeff Smith isn't one to rest on his laurels. DC's Shazam: Monster Society of Evil and his newest creator-owned series RASL are proof that he is still one of the best cartoonists in the business. Now, Eric Nolen-Weathington explores the career of Jeff Smith, a true Modern Master, through a career-spanning interview with the artist, a discussion of his creative process, and mountains of rare and unseen art, including a huge gallery of commissioned pieces, plus 8 pages of full-color work.
