The Monsterjunkies An American Family Odyssey
THE MONSTERJUNKIES SANCTUARY
A Graphic Novel
In a small New England town called Foggy Point. At 1313 Road to Nowhere. Secluded behind massive stone walls. Lies a Gothic Mansion. A home to a most usually family and their menagerie of protected strange exotic and ‘non existing’ legendary creatures called the Monsterjunkies. Follow the adventure as teenagers Crow and Indigo are confronted with harsh “bullying” from their high school peers for being “different”. Simply because of their “odd” personal style and their strange funny name. But mostly because of the secrecy that lurks behind the wrought iron gates of Monsterjunkie Manor. This “secrecy” evokes an imagined fear from the Foggy Point community that allows for an atmosphere of distrust to flourish that sets the stage for the hurtful behavior brought to bear by the entire Monsterjunkie Family. With the guidance of their parents Talon, an accomplished cryptozoologist and Pandora, an extraordinary botanist, who’s slightly mystical, they learn to overcome the town’s harassment and eventually the Monsterjunkies throw open the gates to their private sanctuary. To everyone’s surprise, once the secret is exposed, the fear disappears and acceptance of the family’s “unique” individuality begins to grow.
