In anticipation of the release of Book Two, FIGHT FOR FAMILY (slightly delayed due to pandemic related setbacks and a cranky perfectionist artist) we are back with a new campaign, for anyone who missed out last time. You can still order copies of Book One TUKI: FIGHT FOR FIRE (including on  Kickstarter only, a few extremely limited copies of 1st printings), as well as an advance copy of Book  Two TUKI: FIGHT FOR FAMILY. 

Like BONE and RASL before it, TUKI is a mix of Jeff’s personal passions, in this case, his love of the fantastic heroes of pulp fiction, mythical lost realms and human evolution. 

This campaign includes two original graphic novels: 

Book One TUKI: Fight for Fire by Jeff Smith 

160 pages, 11.375 x 8.875 trade paperback, full color cover, b&w interiors 

This book is in print! It shipped to comic shops and bookstores December 2021, but available again through this campaign. 

Book Two TUKI: Fight for Family by Jeff Smith 

160 pages, 11.375 x 8.875 trade paperback, full color cover, b&w interiors 

This book will ship to backers of this campaign in June 2022 and to mass market in July 2022

What folks are saying about Jeff Smith’s TUKI: 


“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.” 


“Fans of classic adventure will not be disappointed… Smith (BONE) goes prehistoric in this fabulously drawn anthropological fantasy.… the characters and scenery remain consistently stunning to gaze at, page after page.” 


“A Masterclass in storytelling!”
