Empowered Strikes Back!

WE INTERUPT OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED COLUMN FOR A BRIEF, FANTASTIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Adam Warren’s AMAZING good girl comic book, Empowered is back this week with volume 7! Forbidden Planet has copies of the previous volumes for folks to get caught up on, and we HIGHLY recommend that you do. Empowered is a Tootsie Pop of human behavior; On the surface it is the continuous adventures of a scantily clad super heroine who just wants to earn respect; though she finds herself perpetually abducted, disrobed, and tied to chairs. Below that teeth-rotting candy coating of distracting sugar is a deep, chocolaty center of frailty, insight, and nuance.

Good writing check! GREAT art, check! Incredible characters and hilarious humor? You KNOW that’s a check! Empowered Vol. 7 is out THIS week, with previous volumes available HERE at the Forbidden Planet! We now return you to your regularly scheduled column, already in progress-

The Comicscological Constant

By Cornhusker T. Whiskerbooties

(Just kidding, it’s by Unkiedev.)

OFTEN times my “job” as a jet setting comic book journalist is a real grind…like when I get a paper cut on a near mint copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 and I bleed on the page and my blood lowers the resale value of Spidey’s first appearance by, like, $15,000.  Bummer. Or when there are SO many comic book groupies trying to steal my clothes that I just DON’T know what to do, ho hum.

NOT today, however. Today we get to turn our attention to AMAZING comic books FROM THE FUTURE! Yes, instead of telling you super-cool comics that you can buy this week (Hint: Captain America #1, X-Men Schism #1, Green Lantern #67,  Hellboy The Fury #2, and the IDW Berke Breathed gallery collection are a few high points,) I will instead reveal sensational new comics that you can’t buy today, tomorrow or even next Tuesday…these are books you’ll have to borrow from Marty McFly as these swanky tomes only exist IN THE FUTURE!
