Local Artist Celebrates Five Years of Self-Publishing with Super Bowl Comic Book


Local comic book artist Russ Kazmierczak, Jr. has been satirizing Arizona history and current events with his self-published comic book Amazing Arizona Comics for five years, and the arrival of Super Bowl XLIX to the Valley is the perfect fodder for his anniversary issue. The issue uses Super Bowl XLIX as the backdrop in a story that includes Governor Doug Ducey, North Korea’s Sony hack, racial tensions with police departments, and President Obama’s recent visit to Phoenix.

Phoenix, AZ, January 28, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Local comic book artist Russ Kazmierczak, Jr. has been satirizing Arizona history and current events with his self-published comic book Amazing Arizona Comics for five years, and the arrival of Super Bowl XLIX to the Valley is the perfect fodder for his anniversary issue.

“When I started my comic book in 2010, Arizona was in the national spotlight for its immigration policies, and I used superheroes to explore those issues in a light-hearted way,” Kazmierczak explains. “Now, with the Super Bowl in town, the eyes of the world are on Arizona again, and it’s a great opportunity to explore even more issues that affect us all.”

Kazmierczak’s anniversary issue, Amazing Arizona Comics #10, uses Super Bowl XLIX as the backdrop in a story that includes new Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, North Korea’s Sony hack, racial tensions with police departments across the country, and even President Obama’s recent visit to Phoenix.

“When comics were first published just before World War II, superheroes dealt with the same conflicts as their readers -- at the time, that was namely organized crime, the economy, and Nazism,” Kazmierczak continues. “I try to do the same thing in my comic. If superheroes lived in Arizona, how would they deal with the heightened terror threats that come with hosting the Super Bowl? How would they deal with accusations of racism? How do they fight the corruption of technology?”

Amazing Arizona Comics #10 will be available at the Amazing Arizona Comic Con, February 13-15, 2015, at the Phoenix Convention Center, and the issue can be pre-purchased now at Kazmierczak’s blog, karaokefanboypress.blogspot.com.
