GlobalComix Exclusive: The Jonesey and Dr. Long Adventures by Unlikely Heroes Studios

Kevin Partnerships • Apr 23, 2021

We’re excited to share an amazing new series that you’ll be able to access exclusively through GlobalComix or the publisher’s Patreon. The Jonesey and Dr. Long Adventures, published by Unlikely Heroes Studios, is written by John Pence (The Surgeon, Up from the Skies) and drawn by Maxim Mel (Do Well Camp with Max Bemis, Fractured Scary Tales).

The series is a loving send-up of, and homage to, the two-fisted, gin-soaked, nicotine-stained Sunday comics of the 20th Century with a pretty smooth 1:1 ratio of action and jokes. Comics fans and scholars will see nods to legends like Steve Canyon, The Phantom, or The Spirit, all built in a world of animal characters and dripping with noir ink.

The Jonesey and Dr. Long Adventures follows hard-nosed hired gun Jonesey as he drifts from one paying job to another, doing the dangerous work nobody else will. You’ll be able to catch the stories as they unfold with biweekly releases here on GlobalComix.

The first issue is available to read now, so take a look below and click through to start enjoying the latest creation from Unlikely Heroes Studios!

“San Francisco, Chinatown, 1947. I was pretty low, but I was clean - no trouble, no enemies. Everything was tidy, square, and legal ... and I hated every second.”

The old Sunday-comics heroes have nothing on Jonesey and "Doc." In this loving send-up and tribute, the two pals chase adventure wherever it leads and there's "Enough Dough to Buy More Bullets."
