Who the hell wants to go to Westeros? Like…”Y’know what I want…some place where the bounty of the long-summer has been squandered and Winter is Coming..a place where your closest friends are either being shipped off to war or are already dead. And if there was an army of fucking frozen zombies riding undead elephants, bears, and direwolves, beating down the border, that would also be awesome…”

I’m an adult muggle without any form of royal heritage. I won’t survive in any of these places.

Dang, almost forgot… This July 4th weekend represents the 10th anniversary of the very earliest version of Empowered! 
10 years ago this weekend, I was working on a couple of sketches I owed some folks, several of which depicted various superheroines as (ahem) “damsels in distress.” I’d gotten more than a little bored with the sketches, to be honest, and started thinking about how much the life of a distress-prone superheroine would probably suck.
The one-page strip above was the result: A generic, unnamed superheroine embarrassed by having to wear a skin-tight “supersuit.” More than a tad goofy, it’s true, but I still found drawing the page a bit more fulfilling than cranking out another “heroine laid low” illustration. Note that the page still had to deliver a modicum of the ol’ “fan service,” hence Emp’s prominently featured behind. (Note also that, much later on, I redrew and expanded this one-pager into a three-page version for the published version of Empowered. Dig those early, scrawled versions of Emp’s teammates in the background…)
Had no idea, back then, that this first throwaway gag would mutate and morph and complicate itself over the years into the longest ongoing project of my comics career. All the sweeping, majestic plans I once had for grander and more ambitious (and more superficially serious) comics projects came to naught, while this random, unlikely little weed of a comic grew into a mighty oak, quite to my surprise. Best-laid plans and all that, right?
Note that the Empowered franchise’s actual published anniversary isn’t until March 2017, though; I’m hoping to do something special to commemorate that anniversary.
So, uh… Happy birthday, Emp!

Happy Birthday Emp!

Belatedly realized that this summer is the 10th anniversary (ouch!) of my initial work on Iron Man: Hypervelocity, the 6-issue Marvel miniseries that I wrote and laid out; latter in the fall (IIRC), the great Brian Denham came aboard as the artist for the project.

Short Hypervelocity description: Tony Stark’s consciousness is uploaded to a new suit of Iron Man armor, which then ends up on the run from both a wildly overgunned SHIELD “cape-killing” unit and a lethal band of mecha insurgents. Tech-intensive shenanigans ensue!

Alas, Hypervelocity debuted before the Iron Man movie renaissance, and endured fairly brutal sales figures (and is now long out of print); thus ended my brief, ill-starred stint as a writer at Marvel. Oh, well. Can’t complain, though, as the job was fun while it lasted. 

Anyhoo, here are my designs for the new Iron Man armor in question, which owes a debt to certain Japanese mecha-design riffs (which the cognoscenti will no doubt readily perceive).

I’ve spent so much time looking for copies of this series. I want to read/own it so badly.
