Update for our Australian Kickstarters

An update for our Australian Kickstarters! 90% of your pledges for TUKI Book One have shipped, and hopefully most have been received before the USPS delivery restrictions were enforced. Due to Covid there are labor shortages there that are effecting our ability to fulfill these orders. Some shipments have already been returned to us, with more likely on the way. Additionally we are no longer able to print postage for your packages, so we will hold these orders until the restrictions are lifted. If you have any questions about your pledge, please contact Kathleen: kathleen@boneville.com. Thanks for your patience and support!

Recap: Jeff Smith in Conversation With David Filipi at Wexner Center

The Wexner In Conversation with Jeff Smith held Friday evening was a lively and engaging discussion! While most of the events for CXC were virtual, this gathering was held at the Wexner Center on Ohio States Campus, where Jeff talked about everything from his comics research, inspiration, his current series TUKI and so much more! So much fun! Thanks to everyone who came out!

TONIGHT! Jeff Smith in Conversation With David Filipi Tuki, Bone, and 30 Years of Cartoon Books

Jeff Smith in Conversation
With David Filipi
Tuki, Bone, and 30 Years of Cartoon Books
Fri, Oct 1 / 7pm
Free, In Person, Ticketed (reserve online or pick up ticket at the desk)

As part of this year’s Cartoon Crossroads Columbus (CXC), Jeff Smith joins Wex Director of Film/Video David Filipi for a wide-ranging conversation about Bone, his most famous creation; TUKI, his most recent release; and thirty years of Cartoon Books, his independent comic book company.

Columbus-based cartoonist Smith is no stranger to the Wex—he was the subject of a 2008 exhibition cocurated by Filipi—and this conversation promises to be a memorable one about his extensive career.

TUKI: Fight for Fire and TUKI: Fight for Family!, his latest releases, are set two million years ago, when many different types of humans roamed upright on two legs across east Africa. The story introduces the reader to a number of these groups: Australopithecus (the branch that included the famous Lucy); the Habiline people, whose bigger brains led to stone tool creation; and new humans who entered with an amazing new power, the ability to create and control fire!

A signing in the Wexner Center lower lobby follows the conversation.

This year’s CXC festival features both virtual and in-person events presented by Ohio State’s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum, Columbus College of Art & Design, Columbus Museum of Art, and Columbus Metropolitan Library.

Kickstarter TUKI Updates!

Hello!
At this point everyone should have their digital copies of
TUKI: Fight for Fire, and many of you already have soft covers of the regular edition.

Well, now we have a couple of updates!

UPDATE 1: After many production delays, all versions of book one, TUKI: Fight for Fire, soft & hard covers of both the regular and special edition covers are in our warehouse! We are packing those up for shipping!

UPDATE 2: Jeff says book 2 will be ready to ship in February 2022*. This is a few months later than we thought, so we are going to switch things up. We are going to ship all Kickstarter orders for book one in October. All backers will receive their TUKI book one graphic novels before they ship to the mass market in early December. All add-ons and stretch goals will still ship with book 2.

Please make any necessary address changes to the backerkit survey asap. 
*Jeff will post a video update next week to share the work in progress

 
Thanks for your support and patience!
