Casting Bones follows the story of a young boy (Colin) whose father traded him to a crusty old oracle for a chance at power. Yeah, sounds crappy to me too. What's really interesting about Casting Bones, is that we get glimpses into the boy's life as he turns into a man. We see him at ages 8, 10, 14, 18, and 23. Writer/creator David Wrangham has really crafted a great little story that I could read again and again. Since we weave in and out of the story over the years, we never quite get the full tale. There are many things within the pages of Casting Bones that are never explained, and probably never will be explained. That's nice sometimes though. Too often, especially lately, it seems that books and films feel as if they have to explain every little thing to you; it's like, "Yeah, we get it already." Each segment of the comic is handled by a different artist, which really helps not only the entire book, but each segment itself. A lot of things can and will change over the course of a few years. Having someone different handle each part really makes that stand out. Jordan Sgandurra handles Colin at age 8. Kevin Coron has years 10-14. Age 18's art comes from Nate Hamel and that's followed by Lucas Schneider on age 23. While they all have their strengths, I was particularly fond of Nate Hamel's work. It has an exaggerated Bill Sienkiewicz-esque feel to it.
