PORTLAND, Ore. 10/20/2022 — Image Comics will rush the latest hit from powerhouse creative team Geoff Johns and Gary Frank—Junkyard Joe—immediately back to print in order to keep up with rapidly growing customer demand. This exciting new series joins Geiger in “The Unnamed” historical shared universe of heroes at Image Comics.
Earlier today DEADLINE broke the news that "Geiger will be adapted for TV by Justin Simien alongside Johns for Paramount Television Studios. Johns will write the pilot, serve as showrunner, and executive produce alongside Jamie Iracleanos for Mad Ghost, and Frank. The project is also executive produced by Kyle Laursen, and Simien, who recently signed a three-year overall deal with Paramount Television Studios, via Simien’s Culture Machine production company."
“Thank you to Image and all the retailers and readers! Gary and I couldn’t be happier with the response to Junkyard Joe," said Johns. "It’s been an exciting time with the world of Geiger and The Unnamed, and we’re just getting started!”
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 strives to highlight veterans’ perspectives through a comic book lens.
Frank added: "I’m so glad that we’re going to get more copies into people’s hands because I know what’s coming and, when it comes, I think people will wish they’d been onboard from the start. I can’t express how proud I am of this book."
