11 March 2010 by

Comics Artist Andy Kuhn will be on the scene at the 2010 Phoenix ComiCon in May.

Phoenix, AZ March 9, 2010: Andy Kuhn has been a professional comics artist since 1994.  He has worked for every major American publisher and many smaller ones as well.  His titles have included Marvel Adventures, Spider-Man Unlimited and Marvel Team Up (Marvel Comics), Blue Beetle, The Flash, Young Justice, and The Joker:  Last Laugh (DC Comics).

“When I heard the artist of such classics as Flash, Spider-Man and Blue Beetle was coming on board for the Phoenix ComiCon, I about hyperventilated!  Have you seen this guy’s art?” Anabel Martinez, Marketing Director for the Phoenix Comicon, excitedly stated.

With writer Phil Hester he co-created Firebreather, the critically acclaimed succession of miniseries for Image Comics.  Firebreather is currently being adapted into an hour and a half long CGI animated movie of the week for Cartoon Network which will act as a pilot for a potential animated series.  Andy Kuhn is also currently at work on a new Firebreather mini-series for summer release.

Matt Solberg, Convention Director said, “I’ve had a burning need to discuss Firebreather with Mr. Kuhn.  Get it?  Burning!”

Other recent works by Kuhn include the crime drama Easy Way (IDW), Keith Giffen’s violent opus 10 (Boom Studios), Robert Kirkman’s high tech super-spy Brit (Image), and the short lived series Rex Mantooth:  Kung Fu Gorilla with writer Matt Fraction.

In a 2008 interview with Newsarama, Mr. Kuhn said, “I have always loved making comics. It’s all I’ve really ever wanted to do.”

His clients outside of comics have included RCA, GE, Blizzard Entertainment, Cartoon Network, and Upperdeck Entertainment.

Phoenix Comicon is the signature pop culture event of the southwest, presenting guests and programming for hobbyists and fans by attracting the top segments of the comics, anime, sci-fi, film, TV, and gaming industries.  Entering its ninth year, Phoenix Comicon is expected to draw over 10,000+ attendees to its May 27-30, 2010 convention held at the Phoenix Convention Center and Hyatt Regency located in downtown Phoenix.
