(Contains: sexual themes)
Here be a pair of pages from EMPOWERED vol. 5, the latest installment of my ongoing* "sexy superhero comedy" published by Dark Horse Comics... and now on sale, I'm happy to say!

Needless to say, I chose these pages since they seemed at least semi-relevant after the Lakers won the Finals last night. (As a native New Englander and, hence, a Celtics fan, my grudgingly congratulatory "yay" is somewhat muted.) I probably should've chosen Pau Gasol, given that he actually does shoot free throws, but what the heck... (Plus, I think that Shaq's free-throw percentage has actually been much better in recent years, but again, what the heck.)

Anyhoo, these are the first two pages from "When Titans Fornicate," which eventually winds up being a torrid tale of cosplay-based sexual shenanigans between Emp and Thugboy; you can see its title page here [link] . As you can see, I decided to push the limits of Ninjette's disguise ability WAY further than before (to ridiculous levels, admittedly), the idea being that she's using internal power ("chi") to muddle folks' minds into believing an otherwise less than ideal masquerade...


I just wrapped up a long, snark-laden, heavily asterisked and parenthetical interview re: EMPOWERED vol. 5, which you can read here: [link]


You can also see a wee preview of the book here: [link] Note that I got the idea for the fake version of EMP's suit having high heels from a real-life EMP cosplayer: [link]

The book's front and back cover can be seen here: [link]

You can preorder EMPOWERED 5 online at Dark Horse's retail website at: [link] or at Amazon.com: [link] Keep in mind, though, that while Dark Horse's site has the book in stock, bookstores--including Amazon-- may not get it in stock for some time yet. (Comics retailers, including online sites like TFAW, often get EMPOWERED volumes well before the bookstores do.)

Note that both sites have links for ordering previous EMPOWERED volumes, as well; or, you can quite possibly find these volumes on the shelves of of your friendly neighborhood comics retailer or bookstore, though not at MY local Barnes & Noble, annoyingly enough... And if they don't carry the books, just ask said retailer to order 'em for you; believe me, they'd be happy to take your money.



*"Ongoing" as in, there WILL be a vol. 6.

Hey Adam,

I've been following your DA page for awhile now, and I have this question burning on my lips for awhile now. Do you use a special font for the text, or is it all handwritten?

I wish your comic was free. Not for everybody, cause then you wouldn't get money. Just for me. So I wouldn't have to pay to read all of them. The little bits I catch here and there are so teaser-riffic that it makes me wish I already had issues 1-4

Mmm... somehow, i'm under the impression that the difficulty of finding EMPOWERED around here is related to American self-censorship... even if the Comics code doesn't exist anymore... weird.

It has Lakers on it and beverage-mongering barely clothed Ninjette, really great.
Although being from Spain, I'm slightly disappointed it is not Pau Gasol... but it's still an awesome page :lol:

OMG OMG OMG!!! Book 5! I'm so excited, you have no idea how badly I've been waiting for this to hit the shelves. I've been a comic collector my entire life, I used to even co-own a comic store with my husband, and Empowered quickly shot it's way to becoming my favourite comic book ever (yes, it even topped the Tick in my books, I really love it).

I have to say that Emp and Thugboy are probably my favourite comic book couple as well. I so have to draw some fan art of them. ^^

Keep up the great work, and I'm quivering with excitement about book 5. :D

Nothing wrong with amping up the powers of characters, as long as they aren't asspulls a la Silver Age Superman.

Thanks for saving Super-books for me as a medium, and thanks for mixing up all that fandom/fanfic/slash/fetishism into a supers-reality.

I KNOW that would totally happen.

I'm guessing that sales are pretty nice, seeing as how you're on volume five now? Could the fame and glory you've worked so hard to achieve (since the Terminator days, if I remember!) finally be knocking upon your mighty door!? Just please, Mr. W, promise us all one thing... no matter how lucrative the movie rights may be when they appear, don't say yes if Michael Bay is involved!! EMP would be a guy, Ninjette would be Lucy Liu (or just not in it at all), and the camera would shake so much we wouldn't be able to see what was going on anyway...

I picked up all the issues so far and read them pretty much back to back and, though I still pine for the days of Plague of Angels and Grand Mal, and wish you would draw noses again and tone down the puffy lips, I thoroughly enjoyed each story and applaud you for actually making a bad guy that's... well... incredibly disturbing (you know the one I'm talking about!)..(!)

I'm also glad you got some karaoke in there, even if it wsn't Faith no More this time! Heh heh! Actually the whole thing is a bit of an emotional rollercoaster at times... hmm...
