Next week, I'll be flying off to faraway San Diego to attend the ol' Comic-Con International for the first time in three years. If you're one of the few, the lucky few, who managed to get passes to the show, feel free to drop by and say hi! (Er, assuming you won't be spending all four days of the show in line for the Hall H movie and TV extravaganzas, that is.)

I don't have an Artist's Alley table as such at the con, but will have signing-and-sketching times each day at booth #4529, home of the kind and generous folks of UdonCrew. By the way, check out some of the sweet SDCC-exclusive books that Udon will have on hand at the booth, several of which I'll very likely be buying for myself:
  UDON at San Diego Comicon 2015 Preview: Round ONE!
With roughly a month left until the awesome madness known as San Diego Comic-Con, we wanted to announce and preview some of the many exclusives (and we really do mean many) that we will have at the UDON booth this year. Now, without further ado, we present to you ROUND 1 of UDON's Comic-Con 2015 EXCLUSIVES! Let the want list commence!
First: Capcom Fighting Tribute
CAPCOM FIGHTING TRIBUTE - EXCLUSIVE HARDCOVER WITH COVER ART BY LONG VO
UDON's popular series of tribute projects is back, and it’s packing a bigger punch than ever! We are proud to present CAPCOM FIGHTING TRIBUTE! This 280-page art book brings together artists from across the world to celebrate their love for all Capcom fighting games and beat 'em ups, including Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Rival Schools, Captain Commando, Red Earth, and more!  The Special Convention Edition Hardcover features exclusive cover art by Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD

My signing-and-sketching schedule at the :iconudoncrew: booth is as follows:
THURSDAY: 5pm-7pm
FRIDAY 9:30am-2pm, 5:45pm-7pm
SATURDAY 9:30am-12pm, 5pm-7pm
SUNDAY 9:30am-12pm

Also, on Sunday, July 12, I'll pop over over for another morning signing at the Dark Horse booth (#2615) from 10:00-10:50 AM, with a free signing card giveaway dealie promoting the looming (August 19) release of Empowered vol.9. If you can rouse yourself early enough, drop by, snag a freebie, and make me look good in front of my employers! 

Some relevant Empowered vol.9 images below:

Anyhoo, have fun at the convention if you're going, and please try not to get trampled in any Hall H stampedes, okay?

1997 DIRTY PAIR 'Devil Kei Angel Yuri' doujin illo by AdamWarren
1997 DIRTY PAIR 'Devil Kei Angel Yuri' doujin illo
A recently unearthed illustration dating back to 1997 that was, I believe, intended for use in a doujinshi of some sort; pretty sure the piece never saw print, though.

Anyhoo, the characters depicted are "Devil Kei" and "Angel Yuri," virtual-reality iterations of the Lovely Angels who appear in bad guy Kevin Sleet's "harem simulation" in SimHell,  my fourth Dirty Pair miniseries (presently out of print, alas).

Friday, I'll be heading off to New York City to attend the comics-focused convention Special Edition: NYC, which takes place June 6-7 at Pier 94 (located at 711 12th Avenue, New York, NY). More info on the show here: www.specialeditionnyc.com/Home…

Quite the impressively badass list of comics pros in attendance, so I'd recommend taking a look if you're in the area: www.specialeditionnyc.com/Crea… Haven't been to NYC since before the Guiliani era, myself, so this should be an interesting (if brief) little trip.

Anyhoo, I'll be set up at table K18 for any of your signing or sketching needs. Feel free to swing by and say hi!

EMPOWERED vol.9 (pre)order-form printout by AdamWarren
EMPOWERED vol.9 (pre)order-form printout
I'm maddeningly late in the game on this one, but here's a printable order form you can take down to your Local Comics Retailer to ensure that they preorder a copy of Empowered vol.9 for you. (Otherwise, your Local Comics Store might not be likely to order many copies of the book, and you might end up without one; a grim scenario indeed.) Problem is, you'd have to fill out this form and present it to said Retailer very, very soon, as the dreaded "Final Order Cutoff" for the book is on Monday, May 18th. Sorry for taking so damn long to work up this sucker, but better late than never, right?

Further clarification: Empowered vol.9 is the latest installment of my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy*" series published by Dark Horse Comics. The book hits the shelves of Your Local Comics Store on August 19, and the shelves of conventional bookstores a few weeks later. More info on Empowered vol.9 can be found here: www.darkhorse.com/Books/25-831…

Here's the book's solicitation copy:

Already under official suspicion by her distrustful superhero peers, costumed crimefighter Empowered finds herself the bewildered target of every major supervillain in the capes-and-tights field for her supposed access to apocalyptic alien technology. With a trick or two up her tattered supersuit's sleeve, can our tirelessly plucky but sadly underestimated heroine outwit her army of tormentors—and escape the long-simmering revenge of the sinister Fleshmaster?

I'll soon be winging my way northwesterly to attend the Toronto Comic Arts Festival this weekend, on May 9th and 10th: torontocomics.com/ Admission is free, by the way. Wheeeee! A truly impressive array of (much-cooler-than-me) artists will be attending the show this year, so I definitely recommend swinging on by if you're in town!

I'll be set up at the show, for any and all of your signing, sketching, and original-art-perusing needs, at table #229 upstairs in the Toronto Reference Library's Salon area: torontocomics.com/attending-tc… Courtesy of the kind folks from host retailer The Beguiling, I'll have a heaping supply of Empowered books on hand, in case you're missing anything. That should, of course, include the most recent release, Empowered Unchained:

Managed to catch up to Empowered 8, really good work.  I wished Emp had been tied up a bit more, but that's just me :)
  I do feel that you've got more storylines than anyone seems to think you do, I have no idea why anyone would think this series has an end point.  Just the interplay between Emp and Spooky is worth another book at least.  It was good to see Spooky finally grow past her damaged childhood, but I have to wonder about her parents and if they just stuffed her into that school or was there something more to it? 

  I also think you've got something interesting in Divangellic and the others now that you have an origin that's left a lot of questions open.  How did CynderBlock's parents react?  I can guess from what was mentioned about KTL in the previous story that his parents were ok, but how do you adjust to you're son having stones for head and hands?  With Divangellic I was reminded of the Star Trek episode where the transporter split Kirk up into two personalities.  I do feel sorry for the dead heroes.

Fun read, thanks.

Finally got around to reading Empowered #8: excellent stuff, but bottom of pg. 191? Man, your universe's cosmic justice system is seriously fucked.

(If in fact it has anything at all to do with justice or even plain old retribution. Hell is...aliens? I suspect we're only going to get a clear explanation if we meet you blackout drunk.)  :D (Big Grin) :D (Big Grin)

Well, whatever you learned about me, hope it wasn't too appalling; I couldn't make it through enough of the video to find out.

Really the new thing was you working on that Titans comic Nothing really appalling there...certainly nothing to cause me to dislike you. Just felt like you should know.

I've got a question. First take a look at this magazine cover www.oldgames.sk/mag/excalibur-… Arent those two Kei and Yuri before you adopted them?
