Felt I should mention that today sees the release of the new one-shot Empowered: Pew Pew Pew!, the next installment in my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series published by Dark Horse Comics. This is the first "floppy"-format issue of Empowered to be written and drawn entirely by yours truly since 2010's one-shot The Wench with a Million Sighs; thought I'd try drawing a new one myself to see how well it would sell in today's market. (No idea, to be honest.)
Here's the issue's solicitation copy:
The laser blasts fly as costumed crime fighter Empowered battles a series of puzzlingly rage-fueled supervillains, each one armed with a bigger and more destructive "supergun" than the last. Ah, but might our long-suffering heroine's own buried resentments and repressed bitterness prove to be her deadliest foes? (SPOILER: Yes, pretty much.)
You can find this issue in print form on the shelves of Your Local (North American) Comics Store, or you can order it from Dark Horse's retail site here: www.tfaw.com/Comics/Profile/Em…!
If you don't mind digital comics, Empowered: Pew Pew Pew! is presently on sale from Dark Horse's Digital Store for the surprisingly low Black-Friday-related price of only $.099(!). Not sure how long this sale will last, but here's the link: digital.darkhorse.com/profile/…
If you're not big on the Dark Horse app, Pew Pew Pew! is also available in digital form from Comixology, also temporarily available (through Black Friday weekend) for $0.99: www.comixology.com/Empowered-S…
And, hey, if you feel like weighing in on the one-shot, this journal's comment section is as good a place as any, right? Right.
