"Bone Sharps" in the Onion AV Club


The subject of Big Time Attic's first graphic novel, Jim Ottaviani's "Bone Sharps, Cowboys, and Thunder Lizards," has been highlighted in the Onion's AV Club. The heated rivalry between O.C. Marsh and E.D. Cope is often cited as one of the ten greatest scientific rivalries of all time. And who could blame Marsh and Cope for not being civilized when, for example, the railroads opened up great tracts of land just brimming with ancient species waiting to be discovered.

Note to Hollywood: The AV Club is right ... "Bone Sharps" is a great entertainment vehicle that will earn you billions of dollars when you buy the rights. In the meantime, click on the link to the right to buy up one of the remaining first editions of the graphic novel.

Of course, Zander and I believe that any time we touch pen to paper it merits a $30m feature film, so it's nice to see someone in the real world nod their head in that general direction as well.

Thanks to Dank! for the heads-up.
