This weekend, I'll be attending the BigWow Comics Fest on May 17-18, represents my first (non-San Diego) con appearance in California in a very, very long time! If you'll be at the show, feel free to drop by and say hi! General Big WOW info here:

I'll be set up at Table 421H for all your signing, sketching and saying-hi needs. No panels, no shenanigans, just two days of straight behind-the-table time, guaranteed! Here's the Big WOW floor map:… As you can see, my table's position in the hall is "back, and to the left... back, and to the left," a la Oliver Stone's JFK.

While I'll bring at least one full of Empowered volumes and one-shots, I'll mainly have a healthy supply of my 2011 sketchbook Empowered: Extra Sketchiness on hand, in case you never snagged a copy. Some images from the 28-page book:

Note that rikki , the ace cosplayer upon whom the third pic above is based, will be attending the show as well! Alas, she won't be wearing her Emp costume this time around...
Empowered by Riddle1

I'll also be hauling along original art of various sorts, from cheap roughs to cover art to that one giant clump of Dirty Pair vellum-based inks that no one ever wants to buy, alas. Plus, who knows, I might be taking on some sweet commissions while I'm there! (Or, if no interest is afoot, slaving away at the script for the Airwolf/ Knight Rider crossover I'm currently writing for Lion Forge Comics.) Wheeeee!

  • Listening to: COMEDY BANG BANG (podcast)
  • Watching: THE RETURNED
  • Playing: ODIN SPHERE yet again
  • Eating: King's Spicy Kimchi
  • Drinking: Aitch Two Oh, yo

What's your opinion on the ornately verbose speech patterns of EMPOWERED's Caged Demonwolf? 

1,138 deviants said Pour it on, baby! To paraphrase Billy Idol: "Too much Demonwolf is not enough."
658 deviants said As long as the Sin-Sensing Celestial's vocabularily rococo rants are deployed in moderation, I can deal
159 deviants said A little (VERY little) of him goes a long way, as the Blazing-Eyed Devilgoat's ultra-alliterative, thesaurus-abusing dialogue often hurts my brain
65 deviants said Other (clarify in Comments below)

Will your story for Giant-Size Kung Fu Bible Stories be a new Empowered story?

Damn it, if I have to miss another Emerald City Comicon and miss out on getting your autograph I am gonna set something on fire!

Anyways, I've been a big fan of your art since I was about 12. Love your style!

Just read through the whole series of Empowered again for the first time in years. I love everything about your work, and totally hate you for what happened to poor Hannah. =<

I really can't wait to see more, and I hope you're still going strong with that series. Your work has evolved so much, and it STARTED strong. Volume 8 had remarkable theming, a masterful use of vignette storytelling, and it brought me to tears all over again. Even for Spooky.

Emp's bouncebackaliciousness, even in the face of all the horrible things she thinks about herself... Ninjette's strength and ability to push aside her darkness to help those she cares about... Hannah's strength in overcoming what her brother did to her... I can't tell you how much these characters have meant to me over the years. They've kept me going. I'm a mess too... and they inspire me. All the way.

I always get the jitters when I try to recommend Empowered to friends, because, well, it started as DiD art. (Not that I have ANY problem with that.) But even despite its (very welcome!) cheesecake art (which may have, in fact, drew me to the series in the first place, but i'll never tell)... I identify with your characters far more than any character in mainstream comics. How is it that I feel more respected and welcome here than I do when I pick up a copy of the latest DC comic? Maybe it's that there's a real person under that mask. Someone as nervous and insecure as I am. Maybe it's a power fantasy for me, seeing Emp break out of her bonds and blast somebody. I couldn't say. All I know is that I've loved every minute of it.

Thank you so much for everything.


p.s. althoooough... can we please have a canon lesbian couple that doesn't end up with one or both parties eternally damned? pretty please? <3
