Empowered Volume 9 by Adam WarrenAdam Warren is the creator, writer and artist of the ongoing graphic novel series Empowered, published by Dark Horse.

Often described as a “sexy superhero comedy”, Empowered is rendered in Adam’s signature manga-influenced style. The series deconstructs the “damsel in distress” trope via a tongue-in-cheek approach to superhero adventure.

Eight trade paperback volumes of Empowered are currently in stores, with volume nine available for pre-order.

A new collection of Empowered special issues, Empowered: Unchained Volume One is available now.

Lady Killer #4 by Joelle Jones and Jamie S. RichComic creator Joëlle Jones is currently drawing and co-writing (with Jamie S. Rich) a new original series for Dark Horse called Lady Killer, about a picture-perfect homemaker wife and mother who is also a ruthlessly efficient assassin.

Lady Killer’s Josie Schuller has balanced cheerful domestic bliss with coldly executed murders, but when Josie finds herself in the crosshairs, her American Dream life is in danger!

Lady Killer is on comic stands now, with a trade paperback collection coming in September.

The book has been described as “Mad Men meets Dexter“, and Joelle’s art perfectly delivers that mix of fashion, time period and exceptional violence.

Click on the images below for Lady Killer covers and a preview of the fourth issue, available now.
