WCG Comics announced that Rob Hanes Adventures, Volume 2, a trade paperback collecting issues 5–8 of the long-running globetrotting action-adventure comic-book series, will be released summer 2018.

“With these issues, I feel the series really hit its stride,” said series creator and writer-artist Randy Reynaldo. “There’s drama, straight adventure, some comedy, and even a drawing room murder mystery, taking place in diverse locales such as Russia, the Alps, a British manor, and Africa.”

Reynaldo is an invited Special Guest at the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con.

The volume is the fourth trade paperback to date collecting the series. Prior compilations include the Rob Hanes Archives, collecting the original 1990s’ zine run of the series (plus one new story); Rob Hanes Adventures, Vol. 0, which compiled Adventure Strip Digest, the original comic-book series featuring the character; and Rob Hanes Adventures, Vol. 1, which collects issues 1–4 of the regular, current series. To date, 18 issues of Rob Hanes Adventures have been published.

Rob Hanes Adventures is a free-wheeling, light-hearted action-adventure series featuring the exploits of a globetrotting private eye and troubleshooter from Justice International who travels the world on assignment, facing adventure, intrigue and romance at every turn, with occasional dashes of good humor and forays into other genres. Every story is self-contained, making it easy for readers to jump in with any issue.

Launched in 2000, and preceded by a zine and a 4-issue comic-book run titled Adventure Strip Digest, Rob Hanes Adventures is one of the longest-running indie comics series still going! 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 praised Rob Hanes Adventures for recapturing the spirit of the classic adventure strip and updating it for modern day audiences.
