NY Comic Con 2018 Art: RJ Huneke, Elizabeth Yoo, Fred Harper and more folks will be at the Rune Works Booth #1061 with SPY WOMAN SPY, loads of art, free swag, and more at the Javits Center!
I could not be more excited for New York Comic Con this year.
I am STOKED!
I am currently pitching the follow-up to my novel CYBERWAR, and am releasing, at NYCC, alongside my good friend and amazing artist Elizabeth Yoo, the very first preview issue of the CYBERWAR World prequel graphic novel series SPY WOMAN SPY!
This comic book features Xera Finn and Fae Yu from CYBERWAR.
SPY WOMAN SPY takes place in the near future, in the CUSA, where the two disillusioned foreign agents, friends, and lovers struggle to cope with breaking ties to their past. As their birthplace, Wangluo, demands more and more heinous acts of allegiance from Xera and Fae in the Cold Cyberwar, a horrible act of government-sanctioned child trafficking is uncovered rattling the two spies to their core. Betraying orders will be costly!
SPY WOMAN SPY written by (yours truly) R.J. Huneke, and art by Elizabeth Yoo, will be premiering the first preview book SPY WOMAN SPY Issue # 0 at the New York Comic Con.
It has been five years since my car accident, and I am not yet at 100% (getting close), but my creative drive has never been stronger.
Many new projects (children’s book series anyone?) and art are coming very soon, and though I have struggled to work I have by no means been idle.
I am thankful to have befriended some great people who also happen to make art and are going to be on-hand with me at NYCC 2018.
So back to the Rune Works Booth #1061 NY Comic Con 2018!
The talented illustrator Fred Harper will be there – badass Hulk prints in tow – and he will be doing commissions throughout the Con as well as painting and possibly even taking a musical turn on his infamous cowbell.
My longtime friend and now bookmate artist Elizabeth Yoo has been producing amazing cover art for novels and even movie sets and productions.
Her work is truly unique and resonates deeply on many levels, and I am ecstatic that she is producing a deeply noir-esque and never-before-seen take on the comic book art form as a co-creator and the artist of SPY WOMAN SPY.
I could not have imagined anyone who grasps the feel of the Cyber world more than Elizabeth.
Along with Fred having prints, original art, and commissions, Elizabeth will have many limited edition prints on sale, as well as a host of other goodies.
Liz’s amazing “Joker” piece and “Pyscho” piece will be on a heavy-duty tote, and the Mr. Romero’s Joker lips will be hand-colored by Ms. Yoo at the table! They are $10 a piece or $5 with any other purchase!
There will be magnets and Comic Con-only discounts to Liz’s art!
And yes, the author R.J. Huneke, yours truly, will have a limited number of copies of his book CYBERWAR and will be signing them.
I recently uncovered a box while moving that had the sold out hardcover in it and I have a few paperbacks left as well!
Please check in at the booth for signing schedules for all of the artists.
And be sure to talk to CD. Chenet, whose Dare2Draw non-profit has brought comic books, published artists and aspiring artists together for education, amazing lessons, and fun exploration of the craft.
From their site Dare2Draw.org: The Dare2Draw is a non-profit mentoring and networking platform for all comic book and creator artists, an opportunity to connect with each other, face-to-face, encouraging good health and business practices for cartoonists. Established artists and arts organizations meet in a supportive setting, putting the art back in sequential art.
And, as always, there will be free candy, bookmarks, Joker playing cards, and fun swag galore!
On behalf of the Rune Works team, I’ll see you there, at NY Comic Con, in just ONE WEEK! ~RJ Huneke
