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.
