Bone: Out from Boneville by Jeff Smith
This comic features a blob-like creature named Fone Bone who helped his cousin escape from being mobbed by running away from the town of Boneville. While wandering around he loses his two cousins and finds his way into a beautiful valley. Unfortunately, there are rat-like creatures that want to eat him, a dragon that seems to be following him around, and the snow has blocked his way out of the valley to find his cousins.
This is a fairly popular comic with younger children. I picked it up as part of the Banned Books Week challenge this month. I'm not quite sure why it was banned. I don't really see anything offensive in this first volume. It seems to be a fairly tame adventure fantasy comic for children.
