The next issue of Jeff Smith’s latest ongoing comic book, TUKI SAVE THE HUMANS #4 will be cancelled, and re-solicited in the October Previews for December shipping. Cartoon Books made the difficult decision to delay the release of TUKI#4, originally planned for a May 2015 release, to allow for Jeff to properly heal a previous arm injury that has resurfaced.
“The past 12 months have been really busy,” says Smith, “and last month, after doing two issues of TUKI back to back, I noticed my arm was getting numb. I’ve had trouble with carpel tunnel syndrome before, and while I haven’t crossed the line, it’s not something I want to mess with.”
“I also have a secret project I’m working on that is adding to the workload,” he continued, “so I’ve decided the best thing to do was to slow down, move the book to where it will be best for TUKI. Sincere apologies to all of my readers, and I thank you for your patience. We plan to add a few surprises to the issue and hopefully the wait will be worthwhile!”
