NCHV’s CEO Kathryn Monet said: “NCHV is honored and grateful to be a part of Junkyard Joe. It is wonderful to work with such legendary ﬁgures in the comic world to raise awareness for the issues veterans face, and our work to end veteran homelessness simultaneously. We thank the Junkyard Joe team for including NCHV in this unique project.”
CEO of Veterans Aid, Dr Hugh Milroy, said, “We were surprised and delighted to be beneﬁciaries of this unusual venture and deeply moved by Geoff and Gary’s commitment to honouring the veterans in their own families. The bond that unites those who have served is special and although readers of Junkyard Joe will probably never meet the former servicemen and women helped by their donations, they too will have done something special in enabling us to restore independence and dignity to their lives at a time when they most need it.”
From the beloved pages of Geiger comes the story of Junkyard Joe. The world knows him as the comic strip by cartoonist Muddy Davis, but the truth stretches back to the Vietnam War. This is their story of sacriﬁce and brotherhood. Throughout history, unlikely and strange heroes have risen and fallen, their identities and lives a secret. But for a Great Evil to be stopped, their stories must be told. They are The Unnamed ﬁghting The Unknown War.
Junkyard Joe #1 and Junkyard Joe #1: Special Black & White Veterans Edition will both be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, October 5. Junkyard Joe #1 will also be available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play. Check out a preview below.
