At the Spotlight on Jeff Smith, Jeff announced his next project – Tüki Save the Humans. He said he missed the humor and fantasy of Bone and wanted to get back to that.
It will be about the first human to leave Africa. It takes place about 2 million years ago during the Ice Age and Africa has been turned into a desert. Everyone is trying to stop Tüki – the Animal spirits, other humans, and more.
Looking to do this in color from the beginning. Plans to release it weekly online as free webcomic, and eventually releasing the chapters or arcs for sale. Jeff said he would need to have at least 6 months of the book in the can before he started to make sure he stays on schedule.
He said this will be something that kids will be able to read and that Scholastic will like eventually publish it.
