All Aboard On “Nutmeg Junction”


They’re creating Connecticut’s cartoon, a comic strip called “Nutmeg Junction.” The artists behind this creation are Joe Quirk of Torrington and Jessica Ponticelli of Vernon.

Nutmeg Junction features a trolley which really gets around the state to it’s many gems. There are big plans for this Trolley and you’re going to see it every where.

The two met at work in their day job and discovered they could create this work together. And they discovered that “Tony” the trolley can point out marvelous places in the state to children, to families.

Watch for Quirk and Ponticelli to grow their comic strip for the good of the state of Connecticut, and you’ll love the adventures of the trolley. You will see their comic strip featured here on NetworkConnecticut.com
