Jeff Smith’s ‘Tüki’ will be published in full color

Originally solicited as black and white, the print edition of Jeff Smith’s Tüki: Save the Humans will instead be released in full color at the same $3.99 cover price.

According to the cartoonist, readers of the webcomic, which features gorgeous colors by Tom Gaadt, have been lobbying for the same treatment in print. “That’s what I hear over and over while I’m on the road at comic shows,” Smith said in a statement. “To which I say: It’s on!”

Smith’s previous self-published comics, Bone and RASL, were originally serialized in black and white.

Set two million years ago, as a great ice ages grips Earth, the Reuben Award-nominated adventure is the story of the first human to leave Africa.

The 32-page Tüki: Save the Humans #1 is due in July from Cartoon Books.
