Pulp mystery series ‘Junction Jones and The Corduroy Conspiracy’ coming February 2023

For fans of Moebius and the Hernandez brothers, comes a unique dystopian sci-fi tale that mixes cyberpunk with a jazz era silent film, coming 2023 from Scout Comics.

Courtesy of Scout Comics, AIPT can exclusively reveal a new series from Scout Comics called Junction Jones And The Corduroy Conspiracy coming Feb 22, 2023, written by TC Pescatore (The Boxcar Bop), with illustrations and cover by up-and-coming Argentinian artist Luciano Cruzado, and variant Covers by underground artist Patrick Sparrow (Dirt Baby & Bone Cat) and Ewan McLaughlin (Fairyland).

So what’s Junction Jones And The Corduroy Conspiracy about?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

In the derelict slums of the multidimensional town of Junction, Mister Nibs and Junction Jones scour the dangerous alleyways in search of illicit organic material to sell off at the local black market chopshops and transmutation garages, until an anonymous tip leads them to the remains of a murdered Earth hobo. The evidence they uncover on the body points to a vast government cover-up, a conspiracy of which they’re now inexplicably at the center. Their first instinct? Run and hide! But a suspicious maintenance team that just so happens to arrive at the same time, looking for the same body, may hamper that. In the ensuing stand-off Jones decides the best option may be a joke; will it fall flat or land?

Check out covers by Luciano Cruzado, Patrick Sparrow, and Ewan McLaughlin below.
