WCG Comics Makes 21st Exhibitor Appearance at San Diego Comic-Con


For Immediate Release

New bookmarks for the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con
When the Small Press Area debuted in 1993 at the San Diego Comic-Con, WCG Comics—the imprint for Randy Reynaldo, writer-artist of the independent globetrotting action-adventure comic-book series, Rob Hanes Adventures—was among the inaugural class of exhibitors. With the series still going strong, this year's Comic-Con, scheduled July 18–22, will mark Reynaldo's 21st appearance as an exhibitor.

Reynaldo and his WCG Comics imprint will be at Booth K1 in the Small Press Area, a location he's held for several years.

“I’m proud to be a regular exhibitor at Comic-Con,” said WCG publisher and Rob Hanes Adventures writer-artist Randy Reynaldo. “I began as a true small press publisher, first selling my work in zine format. My work has grown with Comic-Con and I’ve made many friends at the show. I'm grateful and amazed by the level of support and attention I've received from Comic-Con and fans over the years.”

The 2018 show promises to be especially memorable for Reynaldo—perhaps in recognition of his longevity as an exhibitor and indy publisher, he is a Special Guest at this year’s Comic-Con!

Highlights for Reynaldo's' appearance at the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con include:
Issue 19 will be released at the
2018 San Diego Comic-Con
  • A spotlight panel on Reynaldo, entitled “Adventures in Self-Publishing,” where he will speak about his work and experiences and insights as a longtime self-publisher, on Thursday, July 19, 12:30–1:30 pm, in Room 4. He will be joined by moderator Barry Gregory, CEO, Ka-Blam Digital Printing. Attendees will receive a free sample issue and other souvenir items.
  • A new issue of Rob Hanes Adventures (#19) will debut at the show, featuring a new direction for the series inspired by current events, as announced earlier.

  • Also available at the booth will be pin buttons and a new collectible bookmark debuting at the show.

Reynaldo will also be posting on social media throughout the show on Twitter at @randywcgcomics and Facebook.
