9. Crown of Horns by Jeff Smith Bone series

This is the ninth and final installment in the series.  It is considered a YA graphic novel.  The premise of the series is that three bone characters are kicked out of Boneville and end up in a valley.  While in the valley they get caught up in the affairs of the ruling family and the dragons.  In the end good must struggle against evil, and allegiances are tested.  The series encompasses some grim scenes as it progresses, but keeps a light humor throughout, as well.  Issues such as racism, relationships, greed, and loyalty are touched upon with a light hand at times and a heavier hand at others.  Overall, the series is well written, and the release of each volume in color enhances the pathos it conveys.
