That's right, Eager Readers, Blackwood State # 1 Comes to NY Comic Con Rune Works Booth # 1061 next week from October 8-11, 2015!
The first full issue is action packed with Englishness and drunken debauchery, and you can get it signed by the creators at the home of the New York Comic Con 2015, the Jacob Javits Center.
Rune Works Productions & Pentian will have the booth all four days at # 1061, and you can meet R.J. Huneke as he signs copies of his novel Cyberwar and the comic he's edited, that was written and drawn by creator Ivan O'Neill, the very first issue of Blackwood State from POWkabam Comics!
You can also meet colorist and artist Kara Zisa there as well, and all will be singing the Blackwood State # 1 issue!
For Blackwood State, O'Neill calls on a notorious state college and the life of a young lady struggling to live in a world that has no idea how not to crap on those that value the study of English writing. Alongside her fellow literary comrades, Guinevere Katz must attempt to keep her sanity and her grade as she survives one of the most obnoxious experiences of her academic career . . . and her professional career . . . and her life as a sentient being.
Calling on father Bill Shakespeare, as her god, and Falstaff as her inner muse and bartender, Gwen's deteriorative, drunken English career is a journey that seems perennially poised on the brink of disaster. Just how the hell does one make a living with a degree in English anyway?
The first official publication of POWkabam, the graphic novel titled Blackwood State, by author/artist Ivan O'Neill, colorist Kara Zisa, and editor R.J. Huneke, aims to be released in serialized form with multiple 24-25 page issues. We sold out of the Preview comic, Issue # 0, at the Rune Works booth 1061 at the 2014 New York Comic Con and had rave reviews. We are looking for a larger publisher to partner with to bring this series to readers regularly.
R.J. Huneke has spent years researching for his latest sci-fi thriller Cyberwar. A longtime writer and columnist, Huneke has interviewed cyber security professionals, carefully examined advances in science (including robotics and artificial intelligence) and compiled modern day speculations on technology and spun them into an electrifying journey into a dystopian society dominated by cybernetic hackers. His extensive knowledge on cyber warfare, robotics, and political protest, as well as his strong female protagonist are what set the riveting story apart.
If you cannot meet R.J. on his Cyberwar Book Tour, be sure to grab a rare signed copy of the work - there are very limited quantities on hand in the world's greatest independent bookstore, the Book Revue of Huntington, New York.
