While news that RASL (and BONE)  is getting the digital comics treatment from comiXology is really cool, I couldn’t help but see this little bit of information from creator Jeff Smith that has me quite down.

In fact, RASL will probably be my last serialized comic book…RASL #15 will be the last issue.

If you haven’t read the book, then you are missing out on a fascinating story. Of course the every other month (or later) release schedule probably hurt ongoing sales.

On the plus side, the collected edition should be an awesome read.

“I think the RASL collection will be close to 600 pages when it’s all said and done, so it’ll look nice and chunky sitting next to BONE.

  1. Stephen, thanks for the nice words about RASL!
    I just want to make it clear that I’m not canceling RASL. RASL is ending at issue 15 because the story will be complete. The original plan was for RASL to last 9 issues, and it ended up 15.
    In any case, it has been a very fun book to make, and, like you, I can’t wait for the One Volume Edition!

  2. I really need to pick up those issues of RASL, if for no other reason than to find out what the heck RASL means. Actually I just bought the One Volume collection of Bone and I’m tearing my way through it loving every minute (and wondering why I hadn’t read it sooner), so that’s enough of a reason to get RASL too.
