Line Break

This graphic novel stars Yorick. He’s a skeleton who comes back to life when a witch accidentally drops a jar of magic potion on his grave. Yorick is dug up by a dog named Bones.

At first, Yorick thinks Bones is annoying. But eventually, he realizes that Bones is the only one who’s able to see past Yorick’s skeletal appearance and become his friend. This is the first book in a new series. Yorick and Bones are sure to have many fun adventures to come.
