NY Comic Con exclusive DNA ANCESTORY DEMOLITION comic sale is ongoing, folks, as a precious few of the limited edition of 50 comic books signed by author R.J. Huneke and artists Elizabeth Yoo and Cheryl Huneke remain available after the con.
It seems we left some back at the studio!
Printed in a gorgeous oversize comic book size and format by Rune Works Productions Ltd. for New York Comic Con 2019, DNA ANCESTORY DEMOLITION features two Cyberwar Series Tales that have never been printed anywhere before, sport stunning illustrations of the pieces, and an exclusive preview to R.J. Huneke’s upcoming graphic novel SPY WOMAN SPY.
Here is some more about the short tales contained within:
The first short has never been released anywhere, neither digitally, nor on paper, and it is called, "DNA Ancestory Demolition":
A widowed mother of two infants, Alexandra stands in the mudroom of her home attempting to keep a salesman from DNA Ancestory at bay, while crowds of people on her front lawn shout, “Murderer!” at her. The quiet man explains that the new deal the company has offered her will be liberating. Her attempt at learning genealogy online has led to her DNA being used by researchers and they say they have found the cure for all types of cancer. If Alexandra will just agree to their testing . . . But the sales pitch, of riches and her being the savior of humankind, is amiss. Something is off, and their meeting in the small home grows tenser by the minute. The quiet man seems too monotonous, too robotic. Has artificial intelligence come so far as to invade her home? When the full terms of the agreement finally emerge, they do not sit well at all...
And the second short Cyberwar Series Tale has up until now only been available digitally on Cyberwarseries.com. "The Cyber Warrior Awakens" features William Waltz in his early days as a Cyber Warrior spy, hacking, hijacking a kidnapping, and finding out the hard way that a hotel is not the easy escape route he had planned...
And again, for an ADVANCED special SNEAK PEAK into R.J. Huneke's upcoming "CYBERWAR" novel prequel comic book series SPY WOMAN SPY, starring the rogue agent, Xera Finn, and the bootlegging hacker, Fae Yu, as they find their former government Wangluo has...sorry...you have to read the book to find out more!
These short story illustrated chapbooks or comic books (just not in the traditional sense of panel by panel sequential art) are being sold for $12 shipped in the continental USA (inquire for shipping internationally), just email info[at]powkabam.com.
Be vigilant, my friends.

New York Comic Con 2017 RUNE WORKS Exclusives: New CYBERWAR! was written by R.J. Huneke. And yes it is true the Rune Works NYCC Booth # 1061 will have even more New York Comic Con 2017 RUNE WORKS Exclusives coming from author and artists R.J. Huneke, Fred Harper and Elizabeth Yoo.
The RUNE WORKS schedule is as follows:
There will be a prequel comic book featuring characters from R.J. Huneke’s cyberpunk noir thriller the CYBERWAR Series titled SPY WOMAN SPY.
If you could not guess it is starring two of the leading ladies, the infamous CYBERWAR Series heroines Xera Finn and Fae Yu as they live their double lives in the shadows of the Port Jefferson black market, which is always at risk of being shut down by the Cyber United States government’s local CNYPD forces.
But that is not all.
Along with the opening pages of this CYBERWAR Series prequel the graphic novel is followed by a never before released in print spy tale, a short story of William Waltz the Cyber Warrior.
This thrilling throwback to the days when Waltz hacked his way into and out of jam after perilous jam as a Cyber Warrior is titled THE CYBER WARRIOR AWAKENS and was only briefly featured as a short online on rjhuneke.com and cyberwarseries.com.
The newest book for the kickoff novel for the CYBERWAR Series is coming very soon . . . drop by for news from the author, yours truly!
There will be five incredible pieces of artwork available in limited edition archival print runs of Mr. Romero (The Joker?), Adam West (is that Batman and Catwoman at a 60’s shindig of a soda shop?) and The Blondes of Alfred Hitchcock: the beauties of THE BIRDS Tippi Hedren and Kim Novak!
We are talking about amazing prints that reflect the paintings (see ElizabethYoo.com.
There are three sizes of prints, so that there is an affordable $5 4x6” print of each, a $20 8x10” print (or 2 for $30), and $40 each for a 13x19” masterpiece collection piece.
But there’s more: rumor has it the TIPPI piece comes in her natural blonde or her noir blue colorations . . .
And then there will be two, only two, of these pieces that are coming in a limited edition and utterly incredible magnet ($5 only folks!).
The man, the myth, the legend, Fred Harper will be bringing MARS ATTACKS pieces and we hope a bevy of his art – check out fharper.com and fredharper.com!
More announcements are coming!
Check all of our sites and come hungry for there will be FREE candy, bookmarks, and knowledge to eat up at the booth.

A slight hummmmmm sounded. The air behind Joshua trembled.
A blue glow dropped in front of his face. He jumped in fright. No one should have been able to get near him down there. Audio white noise played from the speaker that was duct-taped to the circular drone’s belly.
“How’s that possible?”
“I worked as a spy for Cyber,” said Waltz. “You might think your computers are locked down, but you seem to have forgotten who I used to be and what I used to do. What do you think a cyber warrior is anyway? Do you think it was hard to hack your security’s little air force?” asked Waltz with scorn.
The bolt struck Joshua in the chest and sent excruciating pain through his torso that spread out to the tips of his fingers and toes. Such totalic agony was wholly unknown to him.
“Fuck you!” he said.
“No you won’t,” said the loud voice of Waltz. “And just so you know: that little guy I sent down to you . . . let’s call ‘em Hulk . . . Hulk won’t stop until you’re dead . . . and I am free.”
“STOP!” squealed Joshua. He swung clenched fists into the air, but his feeble attempts fell far short of the bobbing drone. His t-shirt burned. “STOPPPPPP!”
“This whole place will blow up,” he gasped, “and gas everyone with Ebola for twenty miles!”
“What did you say?” asked Waltz.

The latest news involving Pentian’s US launch publication Cyberwar involves the thriller’s tremendous buzz and Hollywood knocking on the novel’s door.
Will the book be optioned?
In a recent talk with Pentian CEO Enrique Parrilla, Rune Works has learned that the buzz surrounding Pentian’s first major US release on the book market is leading to a whirlwind of Hollywood fervor.
In fact, “an unnamed studio in L.A. has already expressed interest in optioning the rights [for Cyberwar],” said Mr. Parrilla.
The commercial fiction thriller has a visual flair that the author, R.J. Huneke, believes would “translate well to film.”
Cyberwar will be released at the very start of Fall 2014, though the date the book will be in stores has not yet been announced.
In the description of the suspense work a grim present or possible future is laid out under the guise of a new regime . . .
It all went to hell when the world’s greatest cyber warriors chose to wage war for themselves and not on behalf of the politicians that hired them. Hackers, they used to be called.
To Xera, William Waltz was a broken spy and a fugitive, manipulated by the Cyber Elite that ruled from Canada to Peru. If she helped him, the Cyberwar could be avoided . . . but the assassin named “Sheetrock” tracked them to use his bio-hacked body to delete them both.
The research on cyber warfare and political protest, as well as a strong female protagonist set this riveting story apart.
The target audience for this book is the readers of commercial thrillers. Cyberwar resembles a cross between Miller’s Sin City and Fleming’s James Bond novels.
The book has been finished and is now a series.
For a limited time, Pentian is still crowdfunding for investors, and readers have the opportunity to have their names immortalized as a character in the Cyberwar Series. See it here: http://pentian.com/book/fund/601
