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

greatestcouples-0225

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

Untitled-1


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

05philcoulson

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

untitled-1-1337896947

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...
