Immediate Release

Jeff Smith’s TUKI Save the Humans #4 Rescheduled for December 2015

Columbus, Ohio – April 27, 2015:

The next issue of
Jeff Smith’s latest ongoing comic book, TUKI SAVE THE HUMANS #4 will be cancelled,
and re-solicited in the October Previews for December shipping. Cartoon Books
made the difficult decision to delay the release of TUKI#4, originally planned
for a May 2015 release, to allow for Jeff to properly heal a previous arm
injury that has resurfaced.

 “The past 12
months have been really busy,” says Smith, “and last month, after doing two
issues of TUKI back to back, I noticed my arm was getting numb. I’ve had
trouble with carpel tunnel syndrome before, and while I haven’t crossed the
line, it’s not something I want to mess with.”

“I also have a
secret project I’m working on that is adding to the workload,” he continued,
“so I’ve decided the best thing to do was to slow down, move the book to where
it will be best for TUKI.  Sincere
apologies to all of my readers, and I thank you for your patience. We plan to
add a few surprises to the issue and hopefully the wait will be worthwhile!”

About TUKI SAVE THE HUMANS: Jeff Smith’s latest
ongoing comic book series tells the story of a wandering Homo Erectus named Tuki,
the first human to leave Africa two million years ago, when a great ice age
gripped the earth, trapping all moisture in the polar icecaps. Vast tropical
jungles gave way to dusty grasslands, and all living creatures struggled on the
edge of extinction, including the many species of hominids. Based on the latest
findings of paleontology, TUKI blends humor, mythology, and prehistoric
adventure. TUKI won the 2014 National Cartoonist Society Silver Reuben Award.

author/cartoonist of the BONE and RASL graphic novels. BONE won numerous awards
around the world, and RASL won the 2014 Eisner Award for Best Graphic Album. In
