EMPOWERED vol.9 (out Aug.19!) cover colors by AdamWarren
EMPOWERED vol.9 (out Aug.19!) cover colors
Behold, the full-color cover illustration from Empowered vol.9, the upcoming installment of my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy (except when it isn't)" 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…

You can currently order the book from the Previews catalog at Your Local Comics Store, which is a course of action I'd strongly recommend, as otherwise said store won't likely stock very many copies. Empowered vol.9 can also be preordered from Dark Horse's retail website here: www.tfaw.com/Profile/Empowered… or from Amazon here:  www.amazon.com/Empowered-Volum… (For the record, I should note that the book will ship a few weeks earlier from DH's site than it will from Amazon.)

Pencils and inks (with my new pal, the PITT Artist Pen) on the piece by me, as seen below; color art by the great :iconrobaato:.

Also, I should note that Empowered Unchained will be hitting the shelves of your Local Comics Store on April 1. This book collects all the Empowered one-shots released between 2009 and 2014 in a single volume, and features some badass work by a team of great Guest Artists:

So... I'll be (half)-tabling at the great Emerald City Comic-Con this weekend, March 27-29. I'm set up at table HH-10, which is in the NW corner of the front rank of Artists' Alley tables. There, I'll be available all convention long for your signing and/or sketching requirements, and will have a selection of original art and copies of Empowered-related books on hand. Feel free to drop by and say hi! 

No panels for me this year, but I do have a signing at the Dark Horse booth (#802) from 2:00-2:50 on Friday, March 27, complete with a snazzy new giveaway signing card and everything! Feel free to swing by there as well, and perhaps make me look good (or good-ish) in front of my DH peeps!  

Empowered Unchained, the newest collection from my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series, was originally slated to debut before the show; alas, due to shipping issues, it won't be released until April 1. However, a very limited number (25, total!) of advance copies will be available at both the Dark Horse booth and my own table, if you care to get a jump on the comics-store release. More info on Empowered Unchained here: www.darkhorse.com/Books/26-508…

Final colors for MRS. DEADPOOL variant cover by AdamWarren
Final colors for MRS. DEADPOOL variant cover
Behold, the full-color version of a variant cover I drew for the upcoming Marvel series Mrs. Deadpool and The Howling Commandos, featuring Deadpool's widow Shiklah and a host of Marvel's old-school monsters swept up in Secret Wars/ Battlezone-related shenanigans. More info here: marvel.com/news/comics/24231/s…

Here are the base inks for the piece:

Is it just me, or does Lady Shiklah's reptile buddy, Bug, have an oddly Kevin (Justice League International) Maguire-esque look to his face? If so, the effect was not intentional, I can assure you.

Empowered is a great comic book series which starts out as pure farce, then adds an element of dramatic tragedy, but remains pleasant and upbeat no matter how sad things get within the story. Just like the TV show Buffy Vampire Slayer which the comic directly referenced at one point. I think I've read the first seven trade paperback volumes, the last one I read came out in 2012 I think, this website indicates 8 hasn't come out yet.

Since the series spoofs every "web fanfic fetish" trend, I'm surprised it hasn't done the "inflated girl" trope which is a favorite of mine (think Violet Beauregard). Emp's Supersuit looks like it's just asking to be inflated and popped several times as it always regenerates. I can just imagine her complaining that she looks fat as she floats away from the air in her spherical suit.

honestly, on its face, the comic just looks like a morass of ass an' titty shots, coupled with some shameless beta male finger wagging about not objectifying women and some generic girly dialogue about body issues and men who can't commit. 

 On its face, I said. 

 Upon inspection, it seems purty self aware and, while it does indulge in cheesecake, it's got some snappy dialogue and the heroine actually is pretty damn funny at times.

I don't know: I tend to roll my eyes at the shy beauty trope; because it's so goddamn rare, to the point of unbelievability. Women are not, as a rule, oblivious to their sex appeal and honestly the so-called standards of beauty for women are not as rigorous as most women would posture. I have discussed this at length before. The dark truth of the matter is if women stopped wearing makeup and propping up their lackluster busts with wonder bras...we'd still hit on the hottest ones of the bunch. makeup is just a nuclear arms race among women.

You'll be seeing Empowered: Unchained (a collection of the Guest Artist one-shots) and Empowered vol.9 in 2015, possibly along with a new Guest Artist miniseries as well. (The last one's still in the planning stages, at present.)

Thanks for reading my goofy little series!
