Michael D Hamersky On Comics Presents His Take On:
Rob Hanes Adventures #13! 

TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3687 -   Well... Here's another comic book that I found recently from our five days at the 2012 Comic-Con International: San Diego, (aka San Diego Comic Con or SDCC). 

That comic is Rob Hanes Adventures #13.   Here is my review blog on the series, from #1 - 4 and then 9 - 12.

Okay... Back?!

Here's what Randy Reynaldo, Publisher, has for the promo for this comic book:

"Rob Hanes Adventures #13 will feature two complete stories: “Crime Takes a Holiday” and “Not Your Father’s Private Eye.”

In “Crime Takes a Holiday,” Justice International private investigator Rob Hanes goes on vacation in the French Riviera. However, when he discovers that an international crimelord named Nicolai Korda is also in the area, Rob interrupts his plans for some long-overdue R&R to investigate what his longtime nemesis is up to!

Then, in “Not Your Father’s Private Eye,” Rob gains notoriety when he is the subject of a print and online news magazine article about modern-day private investigators while on assignment in a Middle East country on the verge of regime change. Set in the fictional Middle East kingdom of Koman that has been frequently used in the series, the story echoes the real-life upheavals that have occurred in the Middle East over the past year.

As in all stories in the series, both adventures are complete and self-contained in the issue."

Well... Here's 'My Take' on just issue #13:

Front Cover - You know... I really like this front cover!  Great pose on 'FIND' magazine, and the text stands out just right.  Plus I see there are 2 complete stories!  Let's dig in!

Inside Front Cover -  Which is called the "Rob Hanes Adventures Primer".  Good job telling the reader, whether returning or new to the series, about all you need to know!  Great job!

Splash Page - Not really a splash page, but since there are two complete stories in this issue, I'm not going to complain!

Interior Pages for story #1 - 'Crime Takes A Holiday'.   Not bad, not bad at all!  I like Randy's artwrok and the lettering is just fine for the artwork!  Plus the storyline for these 11 pages fits perfectly!  Great job on this story!

Hanes Briefs - 'The Letters Page' - Good use of the page to separate the two different complete stories in this issue!

2nd Story - 'Not Your Father's Private Eye' - Again, the lettering, text, word balloons, and artwork all mesh very well together.  I'm wondering how this would look in color, but just for a little while, as the story is a good one!

Eight pages later... Another special page - Liner Notes - From the Publisher. 

Last Interior Page - A house ad for WCG Comics.

Inside Back Cover - The Ka-Blam printer's house ad page.

Back Cover - Sales Promo aboout what the series is about...

All in all... Not a bad issue at all!

My rating for this comic book issue #13?  A Near Mint  (NM) 9.4 out of a possible 10.0 comic book grading scale.  Thanks to Publisher Randy Reynaldo for bringing this issue to my attention at his booth at the 2012 Comic-Con International: San Diego!

You can find this item, along with the other 12 comics at the WCG Comics web site.
