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.
P.S. There is a simple message delivered entirely in binary printed in this comic. Enjoy!

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

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.
