Poll: Vote on the Best and Worst Comic Book Romances, Round VIII


In today's polls: Tough love. Whether it's Jessica Jones and Luke Cage breaking through each other's tough shells, or the Baroness finding her way under Destro's skin, sometimes the best love stories happen when someone learns to let their guard down and invite someone else in. Of course, these can be high pressure relationships, especially when that special someone is the only man on the island or the last man on Earth.

Adam Warren’s ‘Empowered’ Shatters Superhero Comics Conventions Of Storytelling, Sexuality And Representation


Adam Warren's
Empowered is one of the best superhero comics being made today. Sometimes I think Empowered might end up being one of the greatest superhero comics ever. The elements are all there: engaging characters, a plot that springs from them organically, an inventive setting, and scads of emotion. Its parodical beginnings -- based in the jokey premise of superpowered woman Empowered de-powering as her delicate, stereotypically skintight super suit gets shredded in battle -- has transitioned smoothly into a darker present, and it’s an evolution that’s been met with little in the way of fan whining for “the good old days.” Yes, Empowered is funny, surprising, moving, and original.

And it's softcore.

Shrinkwrapped, bondage-based, can't-read-it-on-the-bus softcore.

The Phil Coulson Memorial Awards: ComicsAlliance’s Best Comics of 2012, Part 5


We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon...

Liquid Latex Empowers Excellent ‘Empowered’ Cosplay Photography


The outfits worn by our favorite comic book characters are routinely skintight and, particularly with female characters, often quite revealing -- sometimes in the extreme. Adam Warren's longrunning and very acclaimed (by us, especially) graphic novel series Empowered takes this dubious convention of comics and runs with it to create something delightful, a sexy superhero comedy about a heroine whose hypermembrane costume becomes a major obstacle in her life; clinging embarrassingly to every contour of her body and completely falling apart whenever it feels like it...

Art and Superheroines: Getting Sex and Cape Comics Right


Sex is a natural part of life. It's how babies are made and it's how people pass the time. It's natural that sex would be a part of superhero comics, too. What's strange is how rare it is to find a well-done sex scenes, or sexy scenes, in cape comics...

‘Empowered’ Is Back With More Sexy Superheroine Comedy! [Exclusive Preview]


Superheroines have a less than savory history when it comes to certain aspects of anatomy. To get to highlights like "Sky Doll" and Kevin Maguire-drawn nudie scenes, you've got to wade through a veritable forest of wasp-thin waists, women standing on tiptoe, men with nonexistent packages, and breasts that are more like gravitational anomalies than anything even remotely sexy...
