Rob Hanes Adventures Experiences "Regime Change

High adventure and real-life headlines collide again this July in the pages of Rob Hanes Adventures when issue 14 of the long-running indie action-adventure comic-book series finds international troubleshooter Rob Hanes the catalyst for an Arab Spring uprising in the Middle East.

In “Regime Change,” globetrotting adventurer Rob Hanes is asked by the CIA to travel to the Middle East country of Koman as the bodyguard of a jet-setting member of the exiled royal family in the hope that her presence will lead to the coup of General Amra, the country’s military dictator. However, Rob soon finds his assignment complicated by a love triangle involving Amra, the princess, and the head of the insurgency.

"Current events like the Arab Spring uprisings are really just a backdrop for telling an entertaining story full of old-fashioned adventure, romance and intrigue," said writer-artist Randy Reynaldo about the upcoming issue. "Real-world events have fueled many of Rob's adventures and the Middle East has been the setting of many stories in the series, so it was a natural fit to portray these events in a story,"

An advance preview of the series is available below, at the WCG Comics blog, and as a slideshow at WCG Comics' Facebook page. As with all stories in the series, the story is complete and self-contained.

About Rob Hanes Adventures
Inspired by classic adventure comics 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—writer-artist Randy Reynaldo’s work on Rob Hanes Adventures remains a standard-bearer for breezy, fast paced action-adventure reminiscent of Indiana Jones and James Bond, and the work of cartoonists like Alex Toth. Debuting in 1991 as part of the era’s storied wave of small press black-and-white comics, the series has built a dedicated following for recapturing the spirit of the classic adventure strip genre for a modern day audience.

The entire series remains in print, including 13 issues to date of Rob Hanes Adventures and two trade paperback collections of earlier work. For more information about the series, previews and to place an order, visit the WCG Comics at or on Facebook at

Over the years, Rob Hanes Adventures has been reviewed, spotlighted and featured in numerous respected comics industry news publications and websites. The series was also featured in Tony Isabella’s 1000 Comic Books You Must Read (Krause Publications, 2009).

Looks like I'm going to have to track you down at SDCC again this year. The books looks good as usual.
