November: Even Scarier!

Wow -- and I thought October was scary!  November is shaping up to be quite a doozy. Here's where and when you can find Amazing Arizona Comics, and my other attempts at hogging the spotlight.

Of course, fear and November are going hand in hand this year, thanks to the election. I'll unpack the ramifications of Election Day's results soon, but in the meantime here's a detail of the "Sheriff Joe -- No More!" panel I drew for Nerdvana Media in real time, as the numbers were rolling in.  Just click HERE the detail to see the whole image!

October Is Gonna Be Scary!

October is shaping up to be a busy month in and around the world of Amazing Arizona Comics.  The weekends you don't see on my handy-dandy flyer above are booked with private caricature gigs (I am available, folks!), but those events help fund the publication of my minicomic, so I can't complain.

You'll notice at least two chances to find Amazing Arizona Comics in October: at the first ever Phoenix Zine Fest, and at the second ever Cottonwood Comic Book Show. Mention seeing this post at either event and I'll give you the latest issue for free!

As always, thank you for visiting!  Come back soon!  I know I will!

Update!  Here's a direct embed of the latest podcast, featuring my interview with DJ Robin Nash on Phoenix Tonight, and some poems I performed at the Big Pine Comedy Festival.

The Donald Trump/Amazing Arizona Comics Connection (UPDATE)

Donald Trump's frequent visits to Phoenix during his Presidential campaign may be the first times he and Sheriff Joe Arpaio have appeared together on stage publicly, but readers of my local superhero satire Amazing Arizona Comics know that the two have met before.  They actually share a birthday -- June 14, Flag Day -- so, by their birthright and celebrity, they also share a title as Agents of F.L.A.G.!

That's right: When American iconography is threatened, the spirit of Betsy Ross summons those influential celebrities born on Flag Day to protect our nation's strongest symbols . . . as The Agents of F.L.A.G.!  This pin-up appeared in Amazing Arizona Comics #12. . . and foreshadows a story to come.

Donald Trump's harsh views of immigration are no stranger to Amazing Arizona Comics readers, either, as first revealed in this strip from back in November 2012, when Trump, Arpaio, and others were still clamoring for copies of President Obama's birth certificate.  Here is the strip, reprinted in its entirety.

Amazing Arizona Comics President Obama immigration

That's right, folks: Donald Trump is actually hosting a cosmic parasite seeking to expose President Obama as overlord from outer space with a no tolerance policy on illegal "aliens."  And, as the strip implies, there's more to come . . . 

. . . and here it is!  Amazing Arizona Comics #24 exposes the truth behind the Agents of F.LA.G., and the Trump/Arpaio dynamic.  Coming soon!
