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).

I just reacquired a Playstation2 for nostalgia's sake, and the first game I boot up is SSX3, one of my favorite game from childhood/youth.
Now, I already knew of you being here on DA from years past, but just had to check in to thank you for being a part of that experience, and happy to see you still rocking the same art style :)

Cool to see you posting here again! You were one of my big inspirations for drawing when I was a teenager. More specifically, Dirty Pair: Run from the Future.

Dear Mister Warren

Are there already any Spooky/Hannah/Maidman cosplays? Haven't found any.
Anyway, we did them :D

You can find them in my gallery, some examples:
dark-columbia.deviantart.com/a…
dark-columbia.deviantart.com/a…
dark-columbia.deviantart.com/a…

I hope you like them :)

I want to thank you for the story about Hannah and Theresa. It was one of the most touching stories I've read in a long time. I was REALLY in-character when cosplaying Hannah.

We parcitipated with it on the cosplay contest. We mostly played the farewell scene. It's in german unfortunately, but if you're interested, from minute 17 to 20: www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NpfD5…
