When a missing child, Lucas Jones, reappears on his Uncle's doorstep in his hometown of Medford after an absence of 12 years, the brief moment of joy is clouded by mystery. Where has he been? Where is his father who disappeared at the same time? And how is it possible that Lucas is still 11 years old? As Lucas is uncommunicative, it is left to Detective Sergeant David King and child psychologist Jean Symonds to attempt to find some answers from the few belongings Lucas returned with; little more than four Polaroids and a personal journal which speaks of his time in a place called 'The Junction'. The story unravels through interviews, medical and police reports, and ultimately, through visits to The Junction via the pages of Lucas' diary, jumping back and forth in time, revealing pieces of the puzzle in a mystery that keeps the reader guessing right up until the end.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A mystery that keeps the reader guessing right up until the end." -CBC Books "Without hyperbole, Norm Konyu's THE JUNCTION is probably my favorite graphic novel. Gorgeous in every way, it is hallucinatory, moving, and always mesmerizing. A free fall through Grace, Sorrow and Remembrance, what a joy it is to see Mr. Konyu - and his hero, Lucas - pay Humans, Love and Life the aching, hysterical and heartfelt respect they deserve. Bravo" - Jordan Roberts (Writer of Big Hero 6, March of the Penguins) "...an utterly compelling read from first page to last ... if we read a better book than this in 2020, then it will have to be something really special." - Pipedream Comics "This is an outstanding graphic novel, an essential book to acquire, and a remarkable debut from a truly skilled storyteller." -Broken Frontier "Utterly, utterly stunning... so intriguing, a complete page turner. You'd be mad to miss out on The Junction." - Tom Stewart (COMIC ART FESTIVAL PODCAST) "A heartfelt, engaging & fantastical story at its core that quickly shows you that it has the beating heart of a classic. 10/10" - Comics Anonymous "Norm Konyu could have not written a better piece of work for his debut as a graphic novelist." - A Place To Hang Your Cape "A classic and creepy fairy tale albeit set in the modern(ish) world... I was drawn into this book totally." - Never Iron Anything! "This is a whole new level of storytelling." - The Valkyries Online
