Legendary Comic Book Writer Jeff Smith to Appear Locally at Free Event

Fans of graphic novels and comics are in for a treat as Vroman’s Bookstore welcomes renowned comic book writer and artist Jeff Smith for his “Dawn of Man Tour” on Thursday, April 27, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. 

The event is set to showcase Smith’s celebrated career in the industry.

Smith is the mastermind behind the critically acclaimed comic book series Bone, which has garnered numerous accolades and has been translated into over 30 languages. With 10 Eisner Awards and 11 Harvey Awards under his belt, Smith’s creativity and talent are undeniable. His latest series, TUKI, has been receiving rave reviews as well and has already earned the “2022 Best Graphic Novel for Adults” award from the American Library Association.

Set two million years ago, TUKI follows the adventures of a small band of early humans who controlled fire in a time when gods and giants were real, and fire was taboo. This hand-drawn story is a thrilling fantasy adventure with an ensemble of idiosyncratic characters that both new readers and fans of Bone will enjoy.

During the “Dawn of Man Tour,” Jeff Smith and his publishing house, Cartoon Books, will embark on their first national tour in years in support of TUKI. This is an incredible opportunity for fans to meet Smith in person and learn more about his creative process.
