Blaze, currently a one-shot release, follows a group of characters in Capital City that are as complex as they are powerful. Blaze is joined by fellow superheroes Lady Fox and Shock, who are a crime-fighting couple, in his every day battle to take on villains as well as his mental illness.
Blaze is written by Project-Nerd Publishing founder, Iggy Michniacki, and will feature the art of newcomer Mario Alberto Diaz Guerra. The issue will focus heavily on Blaze’s mental well-being, but will do so in a way that it doesn’t detract from an entertaining and complete story.
“I want to take a look at superheroes as we know them and introduce real issues that people deal with today,” noted Michniacki. “Depression is something millions of people suffer with and are often too quiet about because it still can be considered a taboo topic.”
Depression is a common but serious mood disorder. More than 3 million people are diagnosed with it each year and it is often not discussed openly because of the stigmas it still carries.
