Behold, the cover artwork for EMPOWERED: NINE BEERS WITH NINJETTE, the latest one-shot installment of my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series published by Dark Horse Comics. This 32pp "floppy" comic is on the shelves of your Local (well, North American) Comics Retailer as of today, or can be ordered online from Dark Horse's retail website here:…

Or, if you like your comics in digital form (and in a form that actually contributes to the series' ongoing survival, as opposed to a frickin' torrent), you can snag the one-shot right now from the Dark Horse Digital Store:…

The main story in NINE BEERS WITH NINJETTE features beautiful artwork by guest artist Takeshi Miyazawa, best known in the US for his Marvel work on Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane and Runaways, as well as his long-ago debut on the Oni Press superhero-school series Sidekicks. More recently, he's drawn honest-to-Gawd manga in Japan, such as the Capcom game-tie-in series Lost Planet: Bound Raven. For this cover illo, he drew everything but the Empowered figure at left, which is my line-art contribution to the image. The cover's pretty, pretty colors were painted by the great Christina Strain, who once colored Takeshi's line art for Runaways covers back in the day.

Say, here's the solicitation copy for the book:

Kick back and have a cold one with hearty-partying Ninjette, Empowered’s Best Friend Forever, as she weaves a boozy yet poignant tale of ninja magic, complete with fighting, flirting, and swing-dancing with the Maidman—not to mention the outwitting of ’Jette’s monstrous thug of a father. Drink up!

For the record, I wrote the main story and drew a 4-page prologue dealie introducing it; also, the issue also features a preview of the upcoming EMPOWERED vol.8, due out Dec.18. More details on that puppy here:…

In closing, I must of course paste in the requisite general-purpose Emp-related floggery: Print copies of Empowered's first seven volumes (and numerous 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… or on… .

All the existing Empowered books can be purchased rather more cheaply in digital form as well, via the Dark Horse Digital store:…
