EMPOWERED + NINJETTE as the White + Black Queens by AdamWarren EMPOWERED + NINJETTE as the White + Black Queens by AdamWarren
Behold, a Sharpie-rendered illo of my characters Emp and Ninjette (from my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series Empowered, published by Dark Horse Comics) cosplaying as Marvel's White Queen and Black Queen. And yeahp, 'tis true, Ninjette is a tad less well-endowed than any of the various women who sported the Black Queen costume in X-Men continuity...

Here's a previous pic of Emp as the White Queen...

...and, just because I like it, here's another (non-cosplay) pic of Emp and Ninjette:

So, the newest installment of Empowered, vol. 7, is now on sale at your Local Comics Retailer Store and/or conventional bookstore, and is also available in digital form via the Dark Horse Digital Store [link] and on Barnes & noble's Nook: [link]
More info here: [link]

If you've read the book and care to weigh in on the experience, feel free to leave a comment here, in a SPOILER ALERT zone: [link]

And now, further floggery: Empowered vol. 7 can be found at your Local Comics Retailer (or bookstore, possibly), or online at Dark Horse's retail website [link] or on [link] .

Say, here's Empowered vol. 7's cover, without the logo:

And here's the book's back-cover copy:

While costumed crimefighter Empowered makes a startling discovery regarding her unfortunate status as an all-too-frequent "damsel in distress," her hard-drinking best friend Ninjette confronts her own sordid past, violent present and frighteningly uncertain future as she fights a desperate, single-handed battle against a entire clan of supernaturally durable ninja warriors. Can our two hard-luck heroines also withstand the further perils posed by supervillainous minivans, dueling sets of "daddy issues," doomed-but-still-hot boyfriends, undead karaoke party-crashers, and even "spoiler alerts from hell itself" voiced by diabolically omniscient demonspawn?

In closing, I must of course paste in the requisite general-purpose Emp-related floggery: Print copies of Empowered's first six volumes (and a pair of one-shots in comics format) can be found on the shelves of your Local Comics Retailer or bookstore, or online at Dark Horse's retail website [link] or on [link] . All the existing Empowered books can be purchased rather more cheaply in digital form as well, via the Dark Horse Digital store: [link]

Emp and Ninj are just plain adorable in any incarnation.

As for the Hellfire Queens, they always look to me like they're on the verge of a riding crop catfight which will leave their sweet buns sore and red, especially Emma who looks to be the weaker of the two.

Word to the Ninjette, it takes more than big boobs to make a rockin body. I think she's doin fine.

I seriously thought Ninjette was Sistah Spooky, unmasked, from the thumbnail.

I DO believe Ninjette needs some SERIOUS loving, Mr. Warren! :jawdrop: :blush: :wow: :O I mean... SERIOUSLY, sir! Why shouldn't Ninjette have some... uuuhhh, "development" in the looks department? :? I may have yet to purchase one of the issues of Empowered, but let's be honest: Ninjette seems like quite the great gal and she REALLY needs to *ahem* grow up physically, you know! :) Really, after several issues, it's high time she does, don't you think so? :D :rofl:

Whether she might be a late blossomer or whatever the reason it might be for her lacking a generous amount of curves in some parts of her body, Ninjette could TRULY use some morale booster and what better way to achieve that than... well, giving her more of a body! ;) I, for one, wouldn't MIND AT ALL watching the new and improved Ninjette! :heart: :love: :blush: :heart: :love: :blush:

After all, female ninjas (kunoichis) ARE quite the BEAUTIFUL lookers, aren't they? :XD: ;)

Gotta disagree.
I like the fact Warren puts a variety of shapes on display, including the athletic, streamlined shape of Ninjette.

You drew this with a *Sharpie*?? Holy cats, you're *amazing*.

Empowered dressed as Emma Frost?
Even just THINKING about this idea is automatically made of pure WIN!
