Hello, there! I'll soon be heading up to Toronto once again to attend FanExpo Canada on September 3-6. General FanExpo info here: fanexpocanada.com/

I'll be tabling at booth #P83B on the main floor for all your signing, sketching and saying-hi needs. No panels, no shenanigans, just four days of straight behind-the-table time, guaranteed! I don't think I'll actually be listed in the printed guide for the show, but I am indeed mentioned on the FanExpo website (no, really): fanexpocanada.com/comic-guests… (Really wish I'd gotten around to getting a stand-up display banner, as I suspect my table will be rather easily overlooked in the midst of the FanExpo mob scene...) 

EMPOWERED vol.9 (out Aug.19!) front and back cover by AdamWarren

If you're missing any Empowered volumes, I should have plenty on hand, as I'm planning to sell backstock from fine local comics emporium The Beguiling at my table, as I did at TCAF a few months back. If you haven't yet snagged recent releases Empowered vol.9 or Empowered Unchained, those should be well-represented at the table, I believe.

I'll also be hauling along original art of various sorts, from cheap(ish) roughs to cover art to that one giant clump of Dirty Pair vellum-based inks that no one ever wants to buy, alas. Plus, I'm almost certainly taking on some sweet commissions while I'm there, along the lines of these pieces:

So, if you're attending, feel free to swing on by!

As of today, Empowered vol.9, the latest installment of my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy*" series published by Dark Horse Comics, hits the shelves of Your Local Comics Store after the better part of two years in the making. (Well, sorta; some poor choices in outside work delayed its production considerably.) Thought I'd post a journal in case any Empowered readers still on DA wanted a place to discuss the book.

EMPOWERED vol.9 (out Aug.19!) front and back cover by AdamWarren

Note that, while it's on sale now in comics stores, Empowered vol.9 hits shelves of conventional bookstores (including Amazon, where the book is strangely, even alarmingly inexpensive) on September 2; the latter date is also when digital versions of the volume will become available from Dark Horse Digital and Comixology. 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?

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).

Volume 9 was amazing (no surprises there) and that little reveal about a certain big bad might have blown my auto-assuming mind when it really shouldn't have, shame on me.

Please keep working hard good sir, Empowered (Elissa especially) is inspiring with how good it (she) is.

Whoa. Having a slight fanboy meltdown here. I was reading Empowered Unchained just now (I bought it weeks ago and have been saving it as a treat for myself) and I happened to glance at the bio page between stories and... holyshityou'vegotaDeviantArtaccountomgwtfbbq. Sorry. I'm just going to go back to freaking out, 'kay? Looking forward to Emp Vol 9. Bye now. *slinks away, face set in ingratiating rictus*

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.
