About WCG Comics

WCG Comics logoWCG Comics is the publishing imprint and studio name for cartoonist Randy Reynaldo, publisher-writer-artist of the comic-book series Rob Hanes Adventures.

WCG Comics officially began publishing in 1990 with a digest-sized zine called Adventure Strip Digest. Four issues of the zine were published before the series was launched in 1994 as a full-size independent comic-book series under the same title. After four issues, the title was relaunched in October 2000 as Rob Hanes Adventures.

The series also is being collected in trade paperback format: the Rob Hanes Archives, which collects the early zine stories of the series and was funded by a Xeric Foundation grant in 1996; and in 2010, Rob Hanes Adventures, Vol. 0, which collects issues 1 to 4 of in digital remastered form. Volumes 1 and 2 collect the regular series through issue 8. (See our online store for details about these titles.)

About Randy Reynaldo

Photo of Randy ReynaldoCartoonist Randy Reynaldo is the writer, artist and creator of Rob Hanes Adventures, a contemporary comic-book action-adventure series in the tradition of Will Eisner's Spirit, Roy Crane's Buz Sawyer, and Milton Caniff's Terry and the Pirates. The series has been described by critics as a "grown-up Jonny Quest," and compared to Tintin, James Bond, and Indiana Jones.

In 2018, Randy was a featured Special Guest at the San Diego Comic-Con where, during his spotlight panel, he was presented with the prestigious Inkpot Award from Comic-Con International for his Contributions to Comic Art (prominent past recipients include Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steven Spielberg, and George Lucas).

Rob Hanes Adventures is an independent comic-book series published under Randy's WCG Comics imprint. Two trade paperback collections of earlier stories that predate the current series have also been published to date: the Rob Hanes Archives and Rob Hanes Adventures, Vol. 0. Randy's work has appeared in several anthologies, including Love in Tights #2 (Slave Labor Graphics), Negative Burn #30 and 39 (Caliber Comics), and Wolff & Byrd #7 (pinup for Exhibit A Press).

Randy's high-contrast black-and-white art has been compared to master comic-strip storytellers like Milton Caniff and Alex Toth, and earned him extensive coverage and numerous positive accolades from critics and industry trade publications like the Comic Buyer's Guide, Wizard, Back Issue, and indy. More recently, Randy and Rob Hanes Adventures have been also profiled, reviewed and featured on wired.com, Comic Book Resources, Newsarama. He also has been interviewed on "Talk Audio Soup," a public radio show devoted to popular culture.

In addition to the Inkpot Award, Randy is a 1995 Xeric Foundation award recipient and was a nominee that same year for the Russ Manning Award for Most Promising Newcomer, which is presented in conjunction with the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards. The Xeric Award made possible the Rob Hanes Archives, a trade paperback collection of early and previously unpublished work from the series. Randy also is a longtime member of the Southern California-based Cartoon Arts Professional Society (CAPS), for which he has served several times as vice president and treasurer.

Born and raised in New York City, Randy now resides and works in Southern California with his wife and two children.
