Jeff Smith debuts Season 2 of 'Tüki: Save the Humans'

Jeff Smith's Reuben Award-winning webcomic Tüki: Save the Humans kicked off its second season today, ahead of the July release of the first print edition from Cartoon Books.

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

"Tüki is loner, and I think it's pretty clear that he wants to be a loner," Smith told Comic Book Resources in May. "In Season 2, he's going to have a little trouble with that. He's certainly going to attract some more followers. He's already got those little hominids, which are actually australopithecines like the famous Lucy creature. They're following him, and their interest in Tüki has something to do with the old man lizard guy's interest. I don't want to say too much, but I am actually looking very forward to this new season because you're going to meet a lot of interesting characters very quickly -- including a giant."

The 32-page Tüki: Save the Humans #1 arrives in stores in July.
