Image Comics will rush the latest from Geoff Johns and Gary Frank—Junkyard Joe—back to print in order to keep up with demand. The new series joins Geiger in “The Unnamed” historical shared universe of heroes at Image Comics.
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, via Simien’s Culture Machine production company.
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.

Bestselling Geiger creative team Geoff Johns, Gary Frank, and Brad Anderson reteam for an all-new series in the upcoming Junkyard Joe, telling the story of a mysterious robot soldier and the cartoonist who he believes created him. Expanding Mad Ghost’s historical universe of heroes known as The Unnamed, this explosive new story is set to launch from Image Comics this October and will feature a special black and white edition to benefit veterans.
Proceeds from the Junkyard Joe #1: Special Black & White Veterans Edition will be donated to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans in honor of Johns’ grandfather and to Veterans Aid in honor of Frank’s grandparents. All three served during WWII.
Junkyard Joe strives to highlight veterans’ perspectives through a comic book lens and raise awareness and funds to support NCHV and VA, two of the leading charitable organizations committed to ending veteran homelessness in the US and UK, respectively.
Additionally, Johns’ Mad Ghost Productions will donate $2 for every issue purchased.
