Titan Comics are publishing the debut graphic novel from Norm Konyu, The Junction. The story of a missing boy who mysteriously reappears after being missing for over a decade:
“When a missing child, Lucas Jones, reappears on his Uncle’s doorstep in his hometown of Medford after an absence of 12 years, the brief moment of joy is clouded by mystery. Where has he been? Where is his father who disappeared at the same time? And how is it possible that Lucas is still 11 years old?
As Lucas is uncommunicative, it is left to Detective Sergeant David King and child psychologist Jean Symonds to attempt to find some answers from the few belongings Lucas returned with; little more than four Polaroids and a personal journal which speaks of his time in a place called ‘The Junction’.
The story unravels through interviews, medical and police reports, and, ultimately, through visits to The Junction via the pages of Lucas’s diary, jumping back and forth in time, revealing pieces of the puzzle in a mystery that keeps the reader guessing right up until the end.”
Professional animator, Konyu explained how this project has been a long time coming:
“I’m so excited that Titan Comics has given me the opportunity to share the world of The Junction, a project I began way back in 2012 with some notes scrawled on scrap paper. I had to rediscover my personal style to tell the tale, stitching together memories of growing up in small town Canada with dream imagery. It’s been a challenging project, but a deeply personal one that I hope resonates with readers.”
The Junction will be released by Titan Comics in April 2022 and is available to pre-order on Amazon (US) and Forbidden Planet (UK and Europe) now.
