Comic Artist Arrested as Alleged January 6 Rioter

A graphic and comic book artist who was part of a group of insurrectionists who charged and attacked Capitol police officers on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol was arrested yesterday by the FBI.

Robert Wayne Dennis, 61, of Garland, Texas, was caught on police body cameras fighting with police officers trying to control the violent mob near the stairs to the Upper West Terrace, according to federal court records.

Comic artist Robert Dennis specializes in comics art restoration and comic book grading through his Comic Art Restoration Services.

Hello, My name is Robert Dennis and I would like to offer my services in the area of comic art restoration, and text & logo stat reproduction. Over the past several years, I have worked on hundreds of pieces for dozens of clients.

My background in the graphic arts, as well as my knowledge of the comic book field, enables me to take a less than desirable piece of original art and transform it – through stat reproduction, cleaning, tape removal, tear seals, and image reconstruction – into a product that displays all of the merits that the work was originally intended to present.


According to the Raw Story report Dennis has been charged with:

  • Assaulting, Resisting or Impeding Certain Officers.
  • Civil Disorder.
  • Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building or Grounds.
  • Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building or Grounds.
  • Engaging in Physical Violence in a Restricted Building or Grounds.
  • Act of Physical Violence in the Capitol Grounds or Buildings.

  1. It’s bizarre that these “law and order” folks can actually fight a cop, and still believe that it’s unfair to arrest them.
