Here is as six-page preview of Image Comics' Jook Joint #1 by Tee Franklin and Maria Nguyen.
“As a domestic violence survivor, this is a story I’ve been working on for years," said Franklin. "It’s been extremely cathartic and therapeutic. It was important for me to have an artist who understood what Jook Joint meant to me, before inviting them to embark on this journey with me. I appreciate that Image Comics has allowed me to tackle this subject matter, in addition to working with us on charity variants for Mariska Hargitay’s Healing Heart foundation. I now have an opportunity to use my talents to help survivors like myself. People have helped me when I was going through a rough time in my life and now I want to give back.”
The five-issue series is scheduled to debut in October.
