Meet Rasl, an art thief searching for his next big score - and trying to escape his past! Where other thieves plan their heists with breathtaking precision, Rasl has an ace up his sleeve - he can travel through the light between dimensions, affording him access to museums that no ordinary thief could access! In this issue Rasl faces an assassin's bullet and stumbles across a mystery that not only threatens to expose his own illicit activities, but could also uncover one of the world's most dangerous and sought after secrets. Smith's first major independent work since the critically acclaimed and award-winning Bone will be 32 pages long.

They learn about sacrifice and hardship in "The Ghost Circles," and finally discover their own true natures in the climatic journey to "The Crown of Horns".

Rotting James Robinson (Starman, Earth 2) tells of Springfieldians who become ferociously feline in a flesh-tearing little foray called "Bart People." Alarming Mike Allred (Madman, iZombie) turns the screws on a screaming story of botany and gluttony gone awry called "Little Shop of Homers." And, Jaundiced Jeff Smith (Bone, RASL) stirs the brew with a whiteknuckled whale's tale entitled "Call Me Homer." Three scarifying stories to whet your nocturnal appetite! But be forewarned: These grim tales may cause you to laugh yourself to DEATH!
Earlier, Billy was enjoying some hot soup with an older homeless man, Talky. Billy sees a man that looks like his father across the street. Billy follows him into the subway. They get on a red and yellow train with a yellow lightning bolt on the side. The train makes a stop and the mystery man tells Billy to get off.
Long before the Bone cousins were ever lost in the uncharted desert on the outskirts of the Valley, Big Johnson Bone, the discoverer of the Rolling Bone River, founded Boneville. But little is known of the mighty explorer's adventures before he started his famous trading post. So when Smiley Bone sits down with a group of young campers to retell the legendary stories of Boneville's origin and its tough, no-nonsense founder, what they hear are tall tales in typical Bone fashion, wild antics complete with rat creatures, dragons, and a snarky little monkey!
