TUKI Fight for Family! 5 Out Of 5 Stars!

TUKI Fight for Family! 5 Out Of 5 Stars!

Special ‘thank you’ to librarian Sarah Szeszol  for this wonderful review of TUKI Fight for Family on NetGalley, and for recommending TUKI through Readers Advisory, Book Clubs, LibraryReads lists and for purchase for her library!

“This book series is nothing like Bone, but the artwork and story telling is so so good! I can’t wait to find out what happens next. It’s another journey story, similar to Bone in that way with a diverse cast of characters, but it is less comedic. There are a lot of questions to be answered, so it keeps the story going!!”

TUKI Fight for Family! 5 Out Of 5 Stars!

Special ‘thank you’ to Patria Ferragamo of Goodreads for this glowing review of TUKI Fight for Family on NetGalley:

“Anthro-paleontology? Adventure? Mystical forces? The Motherherd of all Buffalo?? Jeff Smith’s signature, always charming, creative style? Comic book fans and lovers of great storytelling, what more could you want?! As it is, I am sad that I will have to wait for the next volume to be published, but you can’t rush great art.”

TUKI IS A HIT! Jeff Smith’s New Prehistoric Graphic Novel Gets A Third Printing!

TUKI IS A HIT! Jeff Smith’s New Prehistoric Graphic Novel Gets A Third Printing!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 13, 2022

Key West, FL – TUKI: FIGHT FOR FIRE by JEFF (BONE) SMITH, which shipped in December, is going back to press for a third printing. FIGHT FOR FIRE is the first book in Smith’s new series of graphic novels set 2 million years ago at the dawn of the human race. Heavily researched and lushly drawn, TUKI has received rave reviews, and industry support.

“After taking a couple of years off, partly to help establish CXC, a cartoon arts festival in my hometown of Columbus, it feels good to get back to the drawing board,” said Smith, “TUKI is a project I have been working on for years. I’ve long been fascinated with questions about our origins, Fire and human evolution.”

Both the third printing of Book One TUKI: Fight for Fire, and its sequel Book Two, TUKI: FIGHT FOR FAMILY will ship in July!

BOOKLIST *STARRED* REVIEW: “If Smith’s iconic Bone weren’t proof enough, Tuki resoundingly restates his status as a master cartoonist of our era. New readers will love it, and fans of Bone will delight in Smith’s return to fantasy adventure with an ensemble of idiosyncratic characters.”

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY: “The characters and scenery remain consistently stunning to gaze at, page after page!”

BIG BANG COMICS: “A masterclass in storytelling!”

YOUR COMIC BOOK GUY: “Tuki is a return to form for Jeff Smith who has created his best series in years!”

ABOUT TUKI: Two million years ago more than one species of human existed at the same time, but only one could control FIRE. At the dawn of humanity, when multiple species of humans existed side by side, three lost children and two missing links fall in with a mysterious traveler named Tuki who carries with him the secret of Fire. A rival species, who hunt and kill anyone found using fire, gets word of the small band of misfits, and the new companions find themselves under attack!

ABOUT JEFF SMITH: Jeff Smith is the New York Times Best-Selling author of the award-winning series, BONE, which is published in over 30 countries and is among TIME MAGAZINE’s “Ten Best Graphic Novels of All Time.” BONE was a pioneer in comics publishing for kids when it launched Scholastic’s graphic novel imprint, Graphix, in 2005, kicking off today’s YA Graphic Novel explosion. Smith’s other award-winning and acclaimed comics include SHAZAM! The Monster Society of Evil, RASL, Little Mouse Gets Ready!, ROSE and BONE: Tall Tales. Smith splits his time between Columbus and Key West with his wife and business partner, Vijaya Iyer.
