Rune Works is ecstatic to announce that R.J. Huneke's newest thriller novel will also become a graphic novel written by the author!
"I feel this work has a lot of intrigue for potential readers, and with its sharp, visual qualities, making a dystopian graphic novel makes a lot of sense," says Huneke.
"I think that my vision for the grim 2020's world built in the novel will fit extremely well into one of my favorite realms of literature, the graphic novel. I have been a huge fan of comic books for most of my life, and I owe them with my starting to read and create art (and writing) in my life; at four I began making my own comics, and I have yet to cease to read/write in some kind of medium. I am going to greatly enjoy this process and see where this work - which I think has innumerable possibilities - can take me. Anything's possible!"
There is no word yet on who will be penciling the graphic novel, or its title, but we are busting in anticipation to find out more.
Author R.J. Huneke recently posted to his blog this:
So here it goes:
I recently won a contest online and received a custom painted coffee mug with a quote on it, and the quote has become one of my all time favorite inspirations and it is from one of my all time favorite bad-ass, innovative, and revolutionary authors of the 20th Century. Can you guess who wrote this?
"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you."
And the answer, of course, is the genius behind Fahrenheit 451 himself, Ray Bradbury! Cheers!
The story has been written, and the first draft of my newest dystopian thriller novel is complete!
It has been quite a ride, and my arduous research and many months of writing have yielded an incredible tale that shakes the notions of societal norms and controls.
Looking back on the process it seems clear to me now that the Jeremy Bentham Panopticon concept - especially as it was utilized by philosopher Michel Foucault - was in the back of my mind fueling me as I worked on this piece.
Do not let my inner philosoph scare you; this book is a thriller of epic proportions from start to finish and the dystopic world built has haunting echoes of what our world's immediate future could become.
Thanks to everyone for all of the support over the past year as I've worked on this. It's been a fun part of my life that is going into unknown territory now, which is exciting and terrifying at the same time.
