NEWS RELEASE - For Immediate Release


Love Is in the Air in Rob Hanes Adventures #16!


This October, Rob Hanes Adventures #16 takes a detour from the series’ usual menu of action and adventure in a throwback to classic romance in a tale called “The Real Julianne Love.” In the story, globetrotting adventurer Rob Hanes becomes entwined in a love triangle involving his co-worker Julianne Love and a costumed crimefighter with super powers known as Guardian Angel. Unbeknownst to Rob, however, Julianne Love and Guardian Angel are one and the same!

Originally produced for a comic-book anthology that mashed up classic romance comics with super heroes, the story is being released for the first time in the pages of Rob Hanes Adventures.

This is not the first time the series has engaged in genre-bending storytelling. Issue 7, “Death on the Moors,” featured a classic drawing room murder mystery, while issue 10, “The Pride of the Chickenhawks,” was a sports tale centered on semi-professional baseball. (The latter story earned the issue a spot in Tony Isabella’s 1000 Comics You Must Read.)

“I’d always wanted to do a classic romance comic and this story was a great opportunity to do one,” said Rob Hanes Adventures writer-artist-creator Randy Reynaldo. “Although the series is primarily an action-adventure series, I think some variety helps keep the series fun and refreshing."

Also rounding out the issue will be two additional stories, both re-lettered for their appearance in this issue: “The Glowworm Conspiracy,” which originally appeared in the Rob Hanes Archives
trade paperback and “Pact with the Devil,” a 4-page story set in South America.

About Rob Hanes Adventures:
Inspired by 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 have lauded Rob Hanes Adventures for recapturing the spirit of the classic adventure strip while updating it for modern day audiences.

Though themes and characters recur in the series, every issue of Rob Hanes Adventures is self-contained. The entire series remains in print, including 15 issues to date and two trade paperback collections of earlier work.
