This week, Dark Horse released a collection of specials from Adam Warren's series Empowered, about a super-heroine known less for her successes and more for her failures, namely her propensity to get tied up by super-villains. Adam Warren has built a entire world of super-heroes around this characters exploits, some by dipping into archetypes and some taking ideas and giving them a humorous twist. The book is definitely for mature readers, Dark Horse recommends ages 16 and up, so be warned that some content is very mature, of a sexual nature, although no explicit nudity is shown and several curse words are censored.
If you're a die-hard fan of Hellboy, you've already picked up this book and the three issues before it. However, you might be like me and have just let Hellboy fall off your reading list. Well, you probably want to hear from someone that let it fall to the wayside only to pick up the latest issue, if for no reason than to read something that might be good.
Dark Horse has gone Game of Thrones wild and that is a good thing! Dark Horse will continue the popular Game of Thrones figures and they will be adding some high-end collectibles. One of the highlights is the stylized Judge Dredd figure. Check out their showroom display and be amazed! More to come folks!
We've not made it a habit here of reviewing entire series, but some things keep our attention to the point where we'll review past the first issue. One of those books is Lady Killer, about a contract killer in the early 1960s who hides her double life from her husband, family and neighbors.
This is it folks, time is running out! If you want to secure the Star Wars run from Dark Horse you only have a few days left. Right now Dark Horse is running a sale that will include every single Star Wars issue from the last 20 years in digital format. Once the new year comes, these will be gone.
Between now and Christmas, every day we’ll highlight a suggestion for gift giving. All of these suggestions will be comics-themed, and every day will see one featured. For Day Nineteen, I'm recommending something that you won't be able to get after the first of the year.
