Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) January 20, 2009
"Out From Boneville," the first complete volume of Jeff Smith's critically acclaimed hit comic book series Bone, is now available for download on the iPhone App Store.
"Out From Boneville" is the introductory story arc in Smith's 9-volume epic, originally published over a 13-year span. The six issues comprising "Out From Boneville" are available for the iPhone in six downloadable apps from digital entertainment provider Uclick, the #1 distributor of comics and games on mobile phones.
Originally a self-published black-and-white comic, Bone quickly became a national phenomenon. Critical acclaim and a string of major awards later propelled Bone to the forefront of the comic book industry.
The iPhone Uclick apps feature new full-color artwork with tap-and-swipe, panel-by-panel controls, creating a truly engaging graphic novel experience.
"Out From Boneville introduces iPhone users to the colorful world and whimsical characters that captured readers' hearts from the very beginning of the series," said Uclick CEO Douglas Edwards. "Jeff Smith's unmatched creativity and artistry are in full display on the Uclick iPhone player. This is a comic book presentation that sets a new standard for what can be done on a mobile device."
Uclick will begin releasing the second volume of Bone, "The Great Cow Race," in February.
Uclick has created dozens of comic apps for the iPhone in recent months, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Godland, Halo & Sprocket, as well as webcomic collections Pibgorn, Basic Instructions and We the Robots.
