Cartoonist and 2018 Inkpot Award recipient Randy Reynaldo will release the landmark 20th issue of his long-running indie action-adventure series, Rob Hanes Adventures, in July 2019.

Inspired by globetrotting soldier-of-fortune adventure strips like Milton Caniff’s Terry and the Pirates and Roy Crane’s Wash Tubbs and Captain Easy (whose more modern descendants include Jonny Quest and Indiana Jones)—with dashes of humor reminiscent of Will Eisner's Spirit—Rob Hanes is a 21st century troubleshooter for Justice International, a detective, espionage and security agency rolled into one.

Issue 20 completes a story arc begun in issue 18 — after a divisive and polarizing figure named Chester A. Humbert ascends to the nation's highest elected office, Justice International is nationalized by the new administration as its own private spy and security agency. When Rob is assigned to track down Humbert's missing daughter, however, his investigation uncovers evidence of deep corruption and moral decay in the nation's highest office and among its most senior advisors. (Any resemblance to actual persons, living or otherwise, is purely coincidental.)

About the Series

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.

The title is one of the longest-running indie comics series still running. Readers and fans have praised Rob Hanes Adventures for recapturing the spirit of the classic adventure strip and updating it for a modern-day audience. Series creator-writer-artist Randy Reynaldo was honored with an Inkpot Award for Achievement in Comic Arts at the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con, where he was also a featured guest at the show.
