For Immediate Release - 2015 San Diego Comic-Con

Rob Hanes Adventures #0 to Debut at 2015 San Diego Comic-Con

Visit WCG Comics at Booth #K1 in the Small Press Area


Following the May 15 announcement that the next issue of the long-running comic-book indie series Rob Hanes Adventures will feature a “soft re-boot” with a special “zero” issue, WCG Comics has confirmed that the issue will debut at the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con, scheduled July 9-12, 2015.

Publisher-writer-artist Randy Reynaldo, under his WCG Comics imprint, will be at exhibitor’s booth #K1 in the Small Press Area (off aisle 1400—see maps below). WCG has been a regular fixture at Comic-Con, with this year’s show marking WCG’s 12th consecutive appearance as an exhibitor and 18th overall since the founding of the Small Press Area in 1993.

While the new issue 0 provides new readers with a fresh entry point for the series, Reynaldo noted that every issue in the series is self-contained and can be enjoyed without prior knowledge of the series. Fifteen issues of the series have been published to date as well as two trade paperback collections of earlier material, and all remain in print and available for purchase.

In addition to the new issue, the series’ full back catalog will be available in its entirety for $45 or in specially-priced value packs of four issues. Free give-aways will also be available with every purchase.

Inspired by the classic adventure comic strips like Milton Caniff's Terry and the Pirates and Roy Crane's Buz Sawyer but set in the modern day—with dashes of light-hearted humor reminiscent of Will Eisner's Spirit—readers and fans alike have lauded Rob Hanes Adventures for carrying on the spirit of the classic adventure strip genre for modern day audiences. Rob Hanes Adventures has been reviewed, spotlighted and featured in numerous respected comics industry news publications and websites, including the Comics Buyer’s Guide, Newsarama, Comic Book Resources, and Bleeding Cool. The series also was featured at wired.com and included in 1000 Comic Books You Must Read by Tony Isabella (Krause Publications, 2009). The year 2014 marked WCG’s twentieth anniversary as a comic-book publisher.
