TUKI Fight for Family – 5/5 Stars!

Thank you to Jared from Goodreads for posting this nice review of the second volume of TUKI (Fight for Family):

“Lots more adventure and fun in a time when so many of our ancestors roamed the same lands. I could stare at Jeff Smith’s art for hours, completely stunned by the power and expression in those ink lines..”

The Great BONE Hunt!

The Great BONE Hunt!

Thank you, For the Love of Comics for your succinct explanation of the many versions of the BONE series. Your videos are quite enjoyable! Cartoon Books is the original publisher of the b&w editions, of which we released in many formats over the years (single issue comics, softcover ad hardcover trades, slipcased editions, omnibus’ etc.) Scholastic/Graphix then began publishing in color, also releasing the graphic novels in various formats over the years. Lastly, our foreign publishers have also released versions in b&w, color, different formats in their respective languages over the years, so there are A LOT of books out there! Happy hunting!

September 11, 2001

September 11, 2001, Jeff and Vijaya had just arrived in Norway for a comics festival in Bergen. Illustrating the experience of what it was like to be far from home that day, these original art pieces were donated to the “9-11: Emergency Relief” graphic novel which was a fundraiser for the American Red Cross.
