In the early days of Copernicus, when he had little bit of a different design, Matt and the fantastic artist Kyle Starks put together this two-page story that offers a twist on the classic “locked room” scenario.
Enjoy.You found me, Kid Detectives. I drew that comic.
Kyle Stark’s one shot on the Copernicus Jones webcomic is one of the reasons why I wanted to do this comic.
Why not, everybody else was doing it.
Here’s a sneak peek at the cover to issue 2!
Hey! Here’s a sneak peek at the cover for issue 2 of Copernicus Jones that I drew. I think this issue came out better than the first.
Speaking of issue 1, if you still haven’t picked it up, it’s still only 99 cents at Comixology. You can also subscribe to the series there as well and Copernicus will show up at your house and kick down the door as it’s released.
If you have any questions regarding Copernicus Jones, Future City, robot politics, etc. and you want them to be included in an upcoming issue of Copernicus Jones feel free to send them via Tumblr, or you can email them to email@example.com
And FINALLY, if you are interested in the history behind Copernicus Jones: Robot Detective you should start HERE, but for even more insight check out the latest episode of Matt’s podcast War Rocket Ajax.
That’s probably enough shameless self promotion for now (at least until something else I need to shill shows up in my feed). Back to finishing issue 3.
Another letters page option!
If you want to send us a comment or question for the Copernicus Jones letters page, but don’t want to send it via Tumblr, you can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We are planning on doing a letters column for issue 2 or 3. If you have any questions regarding Copernicus Jones submit them via the Copernicus Jones Tumblr or at email@example.com

Here is a process gif from Copernicus Jones: Robot Detective #1. I wanted to show how a panel goes from rough sketch to finished product. This page was included in the previews of the issue that were going around, so no spoilers.
In this gif you can see that I usually start with a very rough…
I posted a short thing on what it takes to make a page of Copernicus Jones. Hopefully it’s something people are interested in. If people want I can do some more in depth looks at my process.
Issue 1 of Copernicus Jones: Robot Detective is now available for pre-order on ComiXology for $0.99!
You can order the one issue or subscribe!
Here’s the solicitation:Deep in debt, and with collectors breathing down his stainless steel neck, Copernicus takes on what seems like a simple case that promises a huge payday. Turns out it’s not so simple. Figures.
More design stuff from Kevin. Copernicus has mastered the art of smoking and jumping simultaneously.
Some more early design stuff for Copernicus. It seems like such a long time since I drew these. As I have become more comfortable drawing the character he has evolved ever so slightly. Be sure to check him out on Jan 29th in “Copernicus Jones: Robot Detective” from Monkeybrain Comics on Comixology.
