Go Read a Comic Book Right Now, for Free

Posted by on Fri, Apr 4, 2014 at 4:15 PM

Jeff Smith, the cartoonist creator of the excellent Bone and the flawed-but-interesting RASL, has made the first "season" of his new prehistoric adventure comic book Tüki Save the Humans available to read for free online. For a gorgeous Friday afternoon when you're stuck indoors, this is about as good as it gets. I especially like that Smith included notes under each page, which helps to demonstrate how much research he's devoted to this project. Go give it a try.

If anyone prehistoric saved humans it was Mitochondrial Eve:

"the matrilineal most recent common ancestor (MRCA) of all currently living anatomically modern humans, who is estimated to have lived approximately 100,000–200,000 years ago. This is the most recent woman from whom all living humans today descend, on their mother’s side, and through the mothers of those mothers, and so on, back until all lines converge on one person."…

Sorry, but it irks me whenever I hear that mankind came from Africa: unless there was a pregnant Eve along for the trek, nope.

And hey, Y-chromosomal Adam isn't even the father of us all: such as "some Cameroonians and one African American, who did not inherit their Y from that "Adam"

Mitochondrial Eve Saves Humans: that's the comic I want to read.
